If you ever wanted to sleep with the sound of waves splashing next to your bed then you need to stay at Boat House Kimolos PS in Kimolos island
The Best Hotels in Kimolos are mostly located in Kimolos Chorio (the capital village of the island is not called Chora but Chorio!). Kimolos is considered the little sister island of Milos as they are literally 500 meters apart (1/3 of a mile), and they have always been linked one way or another. Kimolos is not an island that you will see in in-flight magazines because it is certainly overshadowed by Milos in general, but there are a lot of good reasons to visit the island. Don’t expect massive resorts in Kimolos as most of the accommodation on the island is managed by private owners and they are small rooms, suites or villas.

BUT ALSO CHECK:
Kimolos is part of the Cyclades islands but it has always been in the shadow of Milos to be honest but it has its own history and many interesting attractions for its small size. Kimolos only has one main town (Chorio) and along with Milos and Santorini belong to the volcanic Cycladic islands. The island used to have chalk mines from where chalk was exported to Europe and it is also believed to have silver mines at some point.
Kimolos island is not that far from Athens, and you can reach it by taking a ferry from Piraeus (it takes 5-8 hours ) or alternatively, just take a direct 45-minute flight from Athens to Milos and then the 25 minutes ferry to Kimolos (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).
I believe you need a car in Kimolos, as there is simply no other way to move around. There is just one local bus, but I wouldn’t count on it for my transportation on the island as there are many things to see.
