Flora & Fauna of Kimolos

 

Flora

Στην είσοδο του ΧωριούOver 400 common and rare Mediterranean species are recorded in the natural vegetation of the island . Among them many aromatic and medicinal plants.

Bushes, myrtle, thyme, cedar, sand lilies, capers, wild honeysuckle, rushes and reeds are some of the most recognizable, along with the olives, figs and vines paint a landscape much greener than what a visitor expects to meet in a waterless Cycladic island.



ΦραγκοσυκιάAnother species that in fact is foreign to the island although it grows everywhere , are the prickly pear plant. In August you have the opportunity to try some of the most delicious prickly pear fruits of Greece.
