Pollonia or Apollonia is a picturesque fish village of 300 inhabitants, built around a pretty creek on the northeast edge of the island. Pollonia is the island’s second port after the port of Adamantas. Possibly, it was named after the temple of Apollo that existed on the Lighthouse of Pelekouda. The distance from Athamantas is 10 km, and from Plaka 14 km. From there, there is transportation to Psathis which is the port of the neighboring island of Kimolos. Small boats, sea-taxis and ferry-boats transfer you from Pollonia to Kimolos within 30 min. This settlement has a beach with a rich seaside, many rooms to let and hotels, as well as plenty of taverns, restaurants and island cafes that stretch up to the church of Saint Paraskevi at the settlement’s right end. In the pier that lies in front of the church, you can find the fishing boats of the locals coming every morning packed with fish, octopuses and lobsters; from there also tour boats set out for the Cave of Papafragas and for Glaronisia.
