Folegandros Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Folegandros lies in the Aegean Sea and forms the Cycladic island chain along with the islands of Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini. It is a fairly small island, measuring around 32 sq. km, and has around 760 inhabitants who primarily live in three villages: Chora, Karavostasis, which is also the island's port, and Ano Meria. For visitors to the island looking for a vantage point to take in the island's magnificent scenery then the Church of Panaghia is located on the top of a hill and offers great views of Chora and the island's west coast. There are a number of great beaches on the island but visitors should note that all of them are fairly difficult to reach. Some can be reached after a bit of a walk whereas others can only be accessed by boat. The two beaches that can be reached by car are the beaches at Karavostasi and Angali.

The island can be reached by conventional ferry, Highspeed ferry or Flying Dolphin from Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cycladic islands, Crete, Rhodes and the rest of the Dodecanese islands and the East Aegean Islands. Travel times vary depending on destination and ferry type but journey times range from 3.5 hours to 11 hours. The island's harbour, Karavostasi, has a few shops and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.


Kimolos Guide

Kimolos is a Greek island that lies in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands and is separated from the island of Milos by the Strait of Kimolos. According to legend, the island takes its name from the island's first resident. During ancient times, the island was called Echinousa, probably after the snake Echidna (viper) which was, and remains, common on the island. Since ancient times the island has been a battlefield between Ancient Athens, the ruler of the island, and Sparta, the ruler of nearby Milos.

Kimolos actually belongs to the Western Cyclades and is connected to nearby islands and the port of Piraeus, Athens, via a year-round ferry service with a catamaran ferry running only during the busy summer tourist season. During the tourist period, the island usually has daily connection to Piraeus and other islands. Also, transport via Milos is possible, because of the frequent connection of the two islands with local ferry services.
