Kimolos is a small island in the Cyclades.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

The best way to get there is to go to Milos and take the "Pantoffla", a small ferry going from Pollonia(Milos) To Kimolos 3-5 Times a day (20min, 2€/person, 2.6€/motorbike). Some of the big ferries going to Milos also stop in Kimolos. Ferry schedules can be found at [1]

Get around[edit]

There is no car or bike rental on Kimolos. Go to Milos, rent one there and bring it with the ferry. Be sure to ask the rental if it is OK to take it. Cars are usually not a problem, but with bikes a lot of the rentals don't allow so. At least Easy Moto and Niki's don't make a fuzz of it, but be aware that if the bike breaks down on Kimolos it is your responsibility to get it back on the ferry to Milos.

  • "Meltemi", Xhorio, good Greek food, open all year.
  • "Kalamitsi", right at poloni beach, fresh seafood.

All other restaurants are seasonal and cater basically to tourists only.
