access

Kimolos Island, Greece.

The easiest access to Kimolos is via Milos, which is amply connected by air and ferry to the mainland and other islands.
The F/B Panaghia Phaneromeni makes 5–6 crossings daily from Pollónia (in northeast Milos) to Kimolos; it accommodates vehicles, and the journey takes 25 mins.
Ventouris Lines runs two morning services (6 hrs 30 mins), and G.A. Ferries one afternoon service (7 hrs), per week from Piraeus to Kimolos.
This is supplemented in the summer season by two weekly services by Aegean Speed Lines (4 hrs 30 mins).
All these services continue to Milos going south and to Siphnos and Seriphos going north.
