The island of Polýaigos is used as a pasture for many centuries now and it is from that fact that its name comes from. Polýaigos, in greek, means many goats.
It is the largest uninhabited island of the Aegean (officially recorded) with only 2 inhabitants, Mr. Pétros and Ms Elefthería, a farming couple.
A very large part of the island belongs to the church of Kímolos, Panagía Odigítra.
It offers lovely shelters and wonderful beaches along its western and southern coasts. In Fanária and Kalógerous you will witness spectacular natural landscapes, whereas there are many caves along the southern coast.
