KimolosThe pirates called it "Arzantiera" meaning "Silver" for its unique sparkle. Others again gave it other adjectives such as the "Echinousa" and "vipers" because of the secrets which are hidden in the earth and the sea. Untouched, uncluttered, Kimolos, is like a white dash in the blue Aegean, although born of volcanic anger has beautiful bays with turquoise waters and white sands, which remind you of the Caribbean. With no Central Towns or villages, but only one village which is located high on the hill, white, tidy, clean, with its medieval castle dominating the top. Kimolos is modest, humble, genuine and this is something that is reflected in its inhabitants. It is a playful island and this can be seen from the rock strange sculptures that nature has created on it. It is a young at heart island which now beginning to "grow", fortunately with mild pace, and the small harbor with its green water and the blue and white houses standing proudly on the background have now a new mooring pier to welcome us.
