This tiny and extremely beautiful island lies in the western part of the Cyclades, across Milos. Possessing a volcanic soil and a unique variety of minerals, it is famous for its fantastic beaches, ranging from thin sand to pebbles. The capital of the island is made up of two quarters, MÃ©ssa and Ã‰xo KÃ¡stro (meaning interior and exterior part of the castle).
MÃ©ssa KÃ¡stro is a typical Cycladic village, with its houses forming the external wall of the castle. Ã‰xo KÃ¡stro was built in the 17th century around MÃ©sa KÃ¡stro to add plain square shapes to the domes and arches of MÃ©ssa KÃ¡stroâ€™s architecture. Trails lead to every part of the island. A marvelous ecosystem awaits you, where myrtle and fig trees, lentisks, reeds, vines and blue lizards prevail.
Kalamitsi is a traditional restaurant by the sea offering fresh fish. One of their specialties is Kolokithenia, a traditional pie made of zucchini (kolokithi).
Next to the harbor, a shift is the beach of the stream, a small settlement of wires and a few cottages. The waters are crystal clear and has shade trees.
Pigados is a narrow rocky beach on the north eastern side of Kimolos. Its crystal beaches and calm environment attract a lot of visitors.
Right by the old quarries that used to extract limestone lies a long shore of large pebbles and golden sand easily accessible from the main road. Slightly shaded by marram grass and hidden in a natural rock formation jutting into the azure sea, Klima Beach is the perfect spot for enjoying the sun and the summer breeze.
