Pollonia in Milos
Pollonia, or Apollonia, lies opposite the island of Kimolos, as far northeast as you can get on Milos. The distance between Adamas and Pollonia is about 10 kilometres. It is in the highest degree a vibrant fishing village and the island's second most important tourist area after Adamas. The beach is long and lined with shady tamarisk trees. I know many families with children who choose to stay in Pollonia instead of Adamas, and the main reason is the child-friendly beach.

There are many good pensions and tavernas in the village. Many of the tavernas have a wonderful location at the waterfront, and it is a pleasure to be there and have a superb dinner. Armenaki Fish Tavern is considered by many to be the best restaurant in the whole of Milos. I do not know if it's true, I have not eaten at all restaurants, but it is a sure thing that Armenaki belongs to one of the best. And if you like to eat fresh fish, you should absolutely go here.

The ferry to Kimolos start out from the jetty to the right. This almost forgotten island is just waiting to be discovered. Kimolos has about 900 permanent inhabitants, the majority works in agriculture or fishing. Tourism is still in its infancy, foreign tourists that stays overnight are rare, the few that visit Kimolos goes on a day trip from Milos.
I can really recommend an excursion to Kimolos. Rent a car or scooter and take the car ferry of Panagia Faneromeni. You have time to see the whole island in one day, to stroll around the wonderful alleys of Chora, to marvel at the old Kastro and maybe to swim at one of the beaches.
Almost everything is located near the beach in Pollonia.
ACCOMMODATION IN POLLONIA
Pollonia fit perfectly if you want to stay near a beach. You have just a few meters to the sea if you choose Niki Savvas. You do not even need to bring your change of clothes when you go for a swim.
