This tiny and extremely beautiful island lies in the western part of the Cyclades, across Milos. Possessing a volcanic soil and a unique variety of minerals, it is famous for its fantastic beaches, ranging from thin sand to pebbles. The capital of the island is made up of two quarters, Méssa and Éxo Kástro (meaning interior and exterior part of the castle).
Méssa Kástro is a typical Cycladic village, with its houses forming the external wall of the castle. Éxo Kástro was built in the 17th century around Mésa Kástro to add plain square shapes to the domes and arches of Méssa Kástro’s architecture. Trails lead to every part of the island. A marvelous ecosystem awaits you, where myrtle and fig trees, lentisks, reeds, vines and blue lizards prevail.
Right by the old quarries that used to extract limestone lies a long shore of large pebbles and golden sand easily accessible from the main road. Slightly shaded by marram grass and hidden in a natural rock formation jutting into the azure sea, Klima Beach is the perfect spot for enjoying the sun and the summer breeze.
