Alimia or Alinnia is a deserted island located a few miles north east of Chalki. It was a military base during the Italian occupation and in the main bay there are the remains  of the barracks, a church and some fortifications.

Surrounded by high mountains, the bay is one of the wildest and most beautiful of the Dodecanese.

On the bottom of the bay there is an abandoned town where you can visit some of the houses, probably of Italian military families, with well-preserved wall paintings representatives of war ships and submarines.
