Kimolos

Kimolos is a small Aegean paradise where you won't find till this day any mass tourism damages on the island. Beautiful beaches are the highlight of this island, traditional settlements, peaceful alleys and hospitable and kind locals make up the island's “character”.

If you are there on August 15th you won't ever forget the panigyri of Panagias Oikonomou.
