It is also famous for its natural beauty, with dream beaches such as Sarakiniko, Tsigrado and Papafragas, and a great variety of landscapes such as cliffs, caves and lagoons.

In terms of culture, Milos is famous for its traditional architecture, with stone houses and narrow lanes in the town of Adamas. It is also known for its rich archaeological history, with sites such as the Roman theater and the Archaeological Museum of Milos.

Towns of Milos

With more than 15 towns on the island, there is much to explore.

The most famous, Plaka, Trypiti, Klima and Pollonia, will keep you very busy. They are also bigger than the rest and have facilities.

If you want to get off the beaten track, Mandrakia, Triovasalos, Skinopi, Plakes, Fourkovouni, Mytakas have you covered.

Other picturesque but remote and harder-to-find villages include Mikri Skinopi, Areti, Emporios and Zefyria. If you have the time, they are well worth a look as they are all charming in their own way. If you're short on time, these are the ones to skip.

Visit Adamas Town

Adamas is the largest town on Milos, thus offering the greatest variety of options when it comes to hotels, restaurants, hotels, shopping, banking needs, and transportation. Staying here will ensure you have everything from convenience/grocery stores, to ATMs, travel agencies, car/ATV rental shops, and the port at your fingertips.

In addition to the port (where all day sailing trips depart from), you'll also have access to one of the island's two taxi stations and many local buses. There are a couple of hiking trails and beaches nearby, and it's one of the best places in Milos to watch those heavenly Greek sunsets.

Get to Know Plaka Town

Plaka is one of the most picturesque towns on the island and the capital. The small cobbled streets and the charming Greek architecture will make you fall in love!

There are a variety of restaurants and hotels for you to choose from and you will get a nice view while wandering around due to its location on a hill. Plaka's ancient castle towers over the town, giving you an authentic feel of how it must have been before the rest of the island was developed.

Most streets are not accessible by car and parking can be hard to find; Staying here is ideal if you don't plan on renting a car, especially since you can take buses and taxis (which have access to the pedestrian streets).

Explore Trypiti Village

The calm energy of Trypiti combined with the incredible views will leave a lasting impression. Trypiti is perched on a cliff at the top of Klima and has beautiful buildings and churches that draw you in as you sail or walk around the island. You will find great restaurants and great views, especially at sunset.

It is also a 10-minute walk to the catacombs and ancient amphitheatre, both on the way to Klima if you decide to go down. Plaka and the castle are also a 15-minute walk away.

Trypiti is a relatively quiet town and is also on the bus route, making it easy to get around if you don't have a car.

Get to Know Pollonia Town

With a small port and plenty of restaurants, rental places, and shops, its laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere may be just what you need to unplug and enjoy some low-key time in Milos.

If you want to explore Kimolos, staying here would also be convenient as there are frequent daily boat transfers that make the trip. There are even car rental and diving companies if you want to explore the island further.

Visit Klima

Klima is arguably the prettiest spot on Milos, and understandably popular given the allure-worthy backdrop. Despite his popularity, however, he remains reasonably calm.

Staying in one of the unique fishermen's houses by the sea is a unique experience.

The downside to staying here is the lack of accessibility to things. There are a couple of shops and a restaurant, and the crowd tends to thin out around sunset.
