Home » Destinations » Kimolos Island


Kimolos is a small volcanic island off the coast of Milos, close off the coast of Greece. Kimolos was once part of Milos, but was split apart in the first century A.D. by a major earthquake. Its name comes from its history as a chalk mining town (kimolia means chalk in Greek). The island is known for its beautiful beaches and coves, which are either sandy or pebbled. The charming Chora Village, white cottages and cobblestone pathways, breathtaking beaches, and friendly locals!
