Place for cool vacations

Category: Kimolos General


With its traditional character, the whitewashed houses and the great architecture, Kimolos is a place to enjoy peaceful vacations. A stroll around Chorio, the capital of the island, got us closer to the locals. Mostly the old people were standing in front of their doors and chat with their neighbors. There were very few cars, mostly bicycles and scooters. Small shops with decorated colorful doors, traditional cafeterias full of young people were scenes from the daily setting in Kimolos.

When you see the main village take the road that lead you to the beaches. Alyki, Kalamitsi, Bonatsa and Mavrospilia are worth a dive. For those who are not fond of the usual organized beaches, they will definitely love these small coves covered with volcanic rocks. Within a close distance from the beach, you will find one of the most peaceful taverns in the area serving Cycladic delicacies and homemade recipes.

Picturesque summer life

We learnt last minute about Kimolos and tried to book a room but we found only a couple of hotels on the Internet and still they didn't answer our requests, so we went only for a day. There are four ferries going to and back from Kimolos. Ferries leave from Pollonia and from their open deck we could see the gulls flying above you and cathing fish in the sea! How lovely summer pictures!!

The port of Kimolos is small and has beautiful cafes and fish taverns. We swam in front of the port and later we walked half an hour to Chorio, the only village on the island. This is one of the typical islands of Cyclades and I don't know how each village seems so different at the same time!

In the afternoon, everyone was sleeping. No man would walk on the streets. It was just us and the hot sun! But at about 6 o'clock, it was like all people went out of their homes. Old men were drinking coffee in the square, grandmas were going swimming with the children and other chidlren were playing in the small streets and squares on the village. God, how picturesque life can be in Greece! Summer without a trip to Greece is like lost summer...

Try traditional dishes

Kimolos is a volcanic and mountainous small island very popular mostly with Greeks, not foreigners. The village was built hidden by a cliff sicne the ancient times to avoid the often pirates attacks and it is so dazzling white that it is not strange at all the name Kimoloswhich means chalk in Greek.

Don't except to see too much. On Kimolos, there is mainly for rest, sunbathing and swimming. It is not famous for any enormous bays but you can enjoy the Mavrospilia, the desolate beach Aliki with sand and pebbles and rocky Goupa ideal for plunges.

For more beaches simply take the small boat to the tiny island of Polyegos, otherwise you can go to daily excursions to Milos. Regarding nightlife, you will find few, quiet bars in Psathi and in Chora but the locals frequently organize panigiria with songs and dance and you are always welcome to join them!

Try definitely Ladenia, a short of traditional pizza with tomato and onions. All taverns in Kimolos are wonderful and have great traditional dishes.

My true and favourite paradise

My grandmother lives in Kimolos so we go almost every summer. This is one of the favourite islands and I believe this is not only I have roots there. I literally know every stone on Kimolos, every path, every ruined wall. Our house is very close to the square and in the evening we see the children playing and cycling, while their grandparents sit in the traditional coffee houses. People are walking up and down and from the highest point of Chorio you see in the evening the small boats at the port, with their tiny lights. This is such a romantic picture! The most characteristic thing about Kimolos is the clean water. Every beach has so crystal and blue green water that you can see the bottom of the sea! No seaweeds, nothing! My best beach is Agios Georgios, it has unbelievably white and soft sand. There are no taverns or hotels around, so it is very quiet and beautiful, especially if you go early in the morning when there are not many people. Kalamitsi is also very nice and the wind is not strong there, as it can be on the western side of Kimolos.
