For ferry connections to Kimolos check the website of Aegean Speed Lines. Their fast ferry connects Piraeus (Athens) with the island of Kimolos. The trip takes about 3 and half hours (see picture left). Ventouris Sea Lines has a normal, slower ferry in the western Cyclades. This tour lasts much longer (about six and half hours) and the islands of Kythnos and Serifos are also called upon. GA Ferries too goes from Piraeus to the island of Kimolos but this tour lasts even longer because except that more islands are visited after Sifnos it first goes to Milos and then to Kimolos. NEL-Lesvos Maritime connects Kimolos with the islands of Syros and Paros in the central Cyclades. Its route is Syros - Paros - Serifos - Sifnos - Kimolos - Milos and back, but on other days many more islands (for example, Folegandros, Kea and Kythnos and to Piraeus / Athens) are called upon. For the correct days and time of departure go to the website of the ferry companies. Depending on the period in which you are travelling, high season or low season, the number of connections also vary. If you are checking very early in the season if there is a ferry from A to B it may also be that the schedules have not yet been approved and released. Then can try again later. If you have booked a hotel in advance than the owner usually even knows better. Most hotels have contact with the port authorities and they can give you a travel advice.

Kimolos is perfect to combine with a holiday in Pollonia in Milos because from this village there is a regular ferry (4 times a day) to Kimolos. It is adviced to bring your car from Milos because there are no car rentals on Kimolos island. Transport on Kimolos is by bus, taxi or water taxi.

You can check the times and prices and if you like you can book a ticket ahead on the site of Ferries in Greece. Especially if you want to be on a superfast ferry during the high season this could be a good plan.
