This tiny and extremely beautiful island lies in the western part of the Cyclades. Kimolos is named after the lime or “kimolia” which means chalk. Kimolos was also called “Argentiera” by the Venetians, because of its silvery-grey rocksand. Possessing a volcanic soil and a unique variety of minerals, it is famous for its fantastic beaches, ranging from thin sand to pebbles. Kimolos is one of the most picturesque islands of the Cyclades island. Chorio is the capital of the island and a quaint settlement that stretches around the island’s port. Its peaceful atmosphere and natural landscape make it a great destination for relaxing holidays. Kimolos beaches are inarguably the gems of the island! Prassa, Aliki, Agios Georgios, and Kalamitsi are the best beaches on the island. The Mediterranean seal Monachus Monachus’ haven is in the north and uninhabited side of the island. This is where you will find “Skiadi”, a natural sculpture resembling a gigantic mushroom. Colorful, shiny pebbles, limpid waters, grey-white rocks, thermal springs streaming onto sandy beaches, everything comes together as one single painting of unique beauty.
