Nimos is an uninhabited Greek island in the Dodecanese island group of the southern Aegean Sea. Located off the northern coast of Symi, from which it is separated by a small shallow strait called Diapori, it has an area of 4.6 square kilometres (1.8 sq mi). It is the island Ymos of the ancient Greeks.

The island, like Symi itself and the other surrounding islets, has been proclaimed an archaeological site by Greece's Central Archaeological Council.
