Polyaigos, east of Milos and Kimolos.

Polýaigos (Greek: Πολύαιγος) is an uninhabited Greek island in the Cyclades near Milos and Kimolos. It is part of the community of Kimolos (Κοινότητα Κιμώλου). Its name means "many goats", since it is inhabited only by goats.

Along its longest axis, it is Script error: No such module "convert". and among its shortest Script error: No such module "convert". wide. It has a surface area of approx. Script error: No such module "convert". and a coastal length of Script error: No such module "convert".. It is very close to the island of Kimolos (Script error: No such module "convert". north west from Polyaigos) and to the island of Milos (Script error: No such module "convert". west from Polyaigos). There are two mounts, Stroggylo which rises to Script error: No such module "convert". and Psilo Vouno (Script error: No such module "convert".).

The island is to a great extent privately owned by the Greek Orthodox church, which sublets parts of it to local herdsmen from the nearby islands of Milos and Kimolos.

Its goat population maintains Polyaigos as a barren island. It has, however, some magnificent beaches, mainly on the southern part of the island, as well as many sea-surface caves, which serve as a refuge to a dwindling population of mediterranean monk seals (monachus-monachus).
