For those who want to experience the beauty of Kimolos
Kimolos may be a small island but has a lot of beauty inside. We will suggest you some places you can visit and make your vacation unforgettable.
Chorio (Main Village)
In the village you can visit the Medieval Castle, the Archaeological and Folklore Museum and the Post-Byzantine churches. Our village is built according to Cycladic architecture.
In Xaplovouni you can see the windmills. Today, 7 are left on the island, which are not operational.
And if you want to see the village from above, you can continue to the church of the Pantokratoras. There are windmills in the area of Karkanis.
Near the northern exit of the village there is the old stone bridge in Panoklima.
At the southern exit of the village, visit the picturesque fishing village of Goupa with the “sirmata”, which are caves carved into the soft rock, where fishermen keep their boats.
One of the rarest monuments that is included in the Atlas of Geological Monuments of the Aegean.
In the northwestern part of the island, there is a huge stone mushroom, which is called “Skiadi”. Skiadi owes its creation to the various rocks that is composed of and the very strong winds that blow in that area. Something you should definitely visit…
If you have a boat, you can see the carved cave in “Kakopotamos” and swim in the warm thermal water that gushes at Agioklima beach or explore the cave in “Kavos of Gerakia”. Finally, it is impressive “Tou Geronikolas t’Apsila”, which are made of thin layers of gray-white volcanic rocks.
