Poliegos Island

Poliegos, meaning "many goats" in Greek, is an uninhabited island with magnificent beaches, mainly on the southern part and belongs to the Cyclades group. It is located on the South Aegean volcanic arc and lies to the West of Kimolos island and, further South-West, of Milos island.

The remnants of the monastery founded in 1622 and dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin Mary, the stone lighthouse on the Maskoula cape built in 1898, and two quarries used for the extraction of trachyte for millstones, all testify to the human history of the island’s past.

In spite of its dry climate, the island harbours many rare plants and certain Greek indigenous species. Also, because of its special fauna – such as the  Mediterranean Monachus monachus-seals and numerous bird species, Poliegos island has been included in the Natura 2000 network.
