The Sparkle of the Aegean
Kimolos is modest, authentic ... an unexplored paradise. Most of it is mountainous with rocky shores and beautiful sandy beaches with turquoise waters, such as the beach of Bonatsas and Agios Georgios. The Cycladic village high on the hill, with the castle of unique architecture, the countless whitewashed churches, the picturesque beaches and sea caves, compose the simple, yet charming image of Kimolos. The pirates called it Arzantiera i.e. Silver, due to its unique shine. Pure and simple, although it was created by volcanoes, the island offers peaceful holidays. Enjoy homemade recipes, fresh fish and the summer moon while enjoying a drink in the tiny bars of the island.
