Situated about 3km from the main village, Kimolos Port is found on the most southwestern island of the Cyclades Island group. With just under 1000 people, Kimolos is very small and is generally occupied by tourists, especially during the summer months, creating a lively atmosphere around the island. During the winter months the island is known to be particularly quiet, the only jobs available tend to be in hospitality, such as hotel concierges and restaurant staff. Considering the small size, the island still hosts a few attractions; a medieval castle, water spas and museums are all well worth a visit.
The port itself is primarily used for connecting passengers to other islands of the Cyclades group, most of which are in relatively close proximity to each other. Hellenic Seaways and Zante Ferries provide the crossings, both of which are respected and reliable companies that are convenient for visitors to travel stress free. Whilst at the port, visitors can sample the local food at the café sitting right next to the ferry terminal.
For travel to the port, a small bus service operates in the area, running to and from the port and travelling to popular beaches and resorts on the island.
