. 🔹The name Kimolos comes from the word for chalk, and it suits, since the houses are whiter than white.
Chalk is an export product for the island, and the rest of the islanders live off fishing and to some extent tourism.
Kimolos was once one with Milos, but an earthquake separated the two islands, giving them the shapes they have today. The town Ellinika sunk and during archaeological excavations remains from the 8th century have been found where this city once was.It was part of the Venetian Dutchy of the Cyclades in the 13th to 16th century, but most of the inhabitants were pirates.
The Turks arrived in the 16th century, and invaded and conquered most of Greece. Kimolos was no exception, but the piracy on the island continued, and almost all the islanders left in the 18th century.
🔹What to see
you can visit the archaeological museum,there is a diving school,The fishing village Goupa and The hot wells of Prassa
🔹What to do
This is very much an island for relaxation and recreation, so take some good books, colours or pencils and let the creativity flow.
Mavrospilia is a long, deserted beach, Aliki has a quite good sand and stone beach and in Goupa there are some cliffs you can get into the water from. You can also get the taxiboat to the little island Polyaegos where the best beaches are.
You'll find a few, quiet bars in Psathi and Chora
The food served on Kimolos is traditional Greek. You'll find the taverns in Chora or the harbour, and the island's speciality is a kind of pizza called "Ladenia". You should also try the small dishes, mezedakia, here.
