The Venetians called it “Argentiera”, meaning silvery, because of the grey-white colour of its rocks, while nowadays it is known as the island of porcelain, because one of the many valuable minerals with which the island’s volcanic history has endowed it is bentonite, which is used in the production of ceramic clay. Kimolos also boasts epic lunar landscapes in astounding colours with strange geological formations sculpted by the elements, and exotic white beaches surrounded by enchanting crystal-clear turquoise seas with hot springs.
Tiny but beautiful Kimolos is not just a miniature version of neighbouring Milos, but is one of the most elegant and photogenic islands in the Cyclades. From the wonderful traditional architecture of Kimolos Town to its distinctive gastronomy, this attractive island in the western Cyclades is a little piece of heaven on earth, overflowing with authenticity and a genuine spirit of hospitality. You can visit it by choosing one of the ferry tickets to Kimolos.
