The beaches of Kimolos - excursions

If you have enough time, visit all the beaches on the island because they are unique.

(See the Assessment of bathing water quality according to the Ministry of Environment, energy & climate change)

*after noting that Psathi is also a beach,
With car and course from Chorio to East and North you will encounter:

Rema

Near Chorio a natural swimming pool with an excellent scenery provided by the rocks, Rematonisia and “Sirmata” (caves, carved into the soft rock where they keep the boats during the winter). Lee shore, next to the Goupa settlement suitable for people of all ages.

Even though it is open to the north wind, you will love it. With large pebbles and plenty of shade due to its thrifts.

Long kilometers with thrifts and lentisks, the most popular beaches onthe island save Psathi, shallow waters and, like every beach, extremely clean.

Dekas, Ellinika, Mavrospilia

Route on a country road (dirt road). Aspragremna are excellent for artistic photographs. You will have the opportunity to see the ancient city and the tombs. Mavrospilia will be an unforgettable experience.

If you happen to be in possession of a sea craft or you decide to make the trip round the island in a trawler or the sea taxi you can visit the following beaches, if the weather allows it because they are open to north winds:

 

Gerakia Cave

This is not a beach, but an exotic cave at the promontory of Gerakia. You can dive from the boat to wonderful turquoise waters and you can “explore”, walking through the shallow waters, the cave.

Agioklima (with a hot spring flowing at the waterside), Therma, Mersinia, Zefokalamo and almost any bay you will encounter.

Of course, if you have a sea craft Kimolos has a lot more opportunities for swimming at various locations. Whenever you like the scenery dive in without fear and enjoy the sparkling waters.
