Kimolos Island is located in the southwestern part of the Cyclades and at a short distance from Milos. It is a hilly island of volcanic origin which used to be called "Arzantiera" (meaning “silver") by the Venetians and the Franks because of the greyish rocks on the coast. This pentagonal-shaped island has an interesting coastline with bays, small islands, sandy and rocky shores, and several impressive caves.
Kimolos is an island with few inhabitants and limited tourism development. The villages retain their authentic Cycladic features and the main town impresses with its simple architecture and deserted medieval castle. You will see many churches in the villages as well as the countryside of the island, which reveal the importance of religion in the life of residents.
This is a unique place offering unforgettable experiences for those who like peace and want to enjoy swimming in crystal clear waters, good food and of course the hospitality of the locals.
