From the little port village of Pollonia on Milos, you have a very good view of Kimolos, looking over the narrow straight of water that separates the two islands.
Kimolos is easy to visit for the day. We jumped on the ferry/barge in the morning from Pollonia, and arrived at Psathi, the port village on Kimolos about 30 minutes later.
The Chorio (the capital of Kimolos) is perched on a hill overlooking Psathi, and was about a 30 minute walk along the main road.
The village has the pedestrian paths which we wandered and found a little cafe for lunch. We sampled the local cheese pies, which were delicious.
The town is a pretty town to walk through, with shops and cafes offering table and chairs along the paths.
The Church of Panagia Odigitria is a beautiful church in the town, built between 1867 and 1874. With it's beautiful blue dome, it can be spotted while wandering the town. It could even be seen perched on the hill when we arrived by the ferry.
The castle, or kastro, dates back centuries. It was built to protect the people of the island from attacks from other cultures and even pirates.
The Milos to Kimolos ferry information can be found here. You may need to revisit during the season as the ferry schedule gets updated.
