More about Pollonia

In Pollonia, you will find the second port of Milos. It is much smaller than Adamas and it is only used by local fishing boats and boats that serve the connection between Pollonia and the islands of Kimolos and Glaronissia. For this reason, a day trip to Kimolos or an even longer stay are always on the table.
Kimolos is a picturesque Cycladic island but unlike Milos, it remains untouched by mass tourism and maintains a low profile with a quiet atmosphere and a traditional character. It is an amazing option if you enjoy alternative destinations.
Glaronissia, on the other hand, is a deserted islet and only its coastline can be approached by boat as it is very rocky. It has great geological significance due to its impressive rock formations and it is entirely made of lava. Excursions to Glaronissia are very popular. To get there, you can rent a boat on your own or participate in an organized trip.

For the time you spend in Pollonia, the village does have a few interesting things to see. Agia Paraskevi church is the signature landmark of Pollonia, as it can be spotted from any part of the village. At the same time, it is a very popular viewpoint for those who want a nice place to watch the sunset.
Another important ecclesiastical monument is Saint Nicholas, a very photogenic chapel which stands out for its Cycladic style of architecture. The small church is painted in white and blue and its location offers amazing sea views. It is frequently used to house wedding ceremonies.

Conveniently enough, Pollonia also has a beach that is ideal for swimming or just relaxing on the seashore. It is sandy, with shallow waters and trees that offer natural shade. The beach of Pollonia is particularly popular among families with children.

For those who enjoy long hikes, the hiking route from Pollonia to Phylakopi will allow you to enjoy the landscape in the area. Phylakopi is a significant archeological site which dates back to the Prehistoric period. The Neolithic settlement started developing from 9000 to 4000 BC and its decline began around 1000 BC. The ruins can also be reached by car.

Following the same road from Phylakopi, don't miss a stop at Papafragas beach, with the beautiful cave of Papafragas that makes it one of the most visited places on the island!

    Eating place
    Pollonia is just a regular small village where you go to eat or to catch a boat for Kimolos. That's it.
    I must say we weren't really content with our restaurant, although everyone says that it is not possible to eat bad there. :)
