General Information of Milos 

Milos is a gem of an island that has remained relatively untouched, and does not enjoy mass tourism like other Greek islands. Here we will tell you everything about how to travel to Milos, Greece.

The volcanic nature has given rise to a unique archaeological landscape and coastline. You can also find caves, hot springs, salt hotels and a large number of beaches (75 to be exact, yes 75!). Overall, it's a unique island with an interesting history and a lucrative mining past.

While Instagram has helped popularize the island due to its more unique beaches (i.e. Sarakiniko and Tsigrado), Milos has yet to see a tipping point in tourism, which means it remains untouched, reasonably priced, and ready. to be discovered.

Top 5 Activities to Do in Milos

Sailing in Milos

One of the best ways to enjoy Milos is to sail around the island for a day. See the 75 beaches that line the coast of Milos Island, and explore some only accessible by boat, including Gerontas and Gerakas.

The tour also goes to the neighboring islands and natural wonders, Glaronisia and Polyegos. You'll also be provided with snorkeling equipment so you can explore the old pirates' den, Kleftiko Bay.

Tour Sarakiniko Beach

A visit to Milos is not complete without exploring the most famous of the 75 beaches, Sarakiniko Beach. This unique moon-shaped rocky beach was carved over time by natural elements. Spend the day cliff jumping, sunbathing, or exploring (Tip: there's a shipwreck nearby).

Better yet, bring a bottle of wine and a take-out dinner and watch the sunset, and gaze at the stars; you probably have it all to yourself.

Explore the Colorful Village of Klima

Perhaps the most famous village on the island of Milos, Klima is as picturesque as it is colourful. Fishermen's hideaways, known as Syrmata, line the Aegean Sea. Take a walk, pick up local handmade souvenirs, or enjoy a sunset dinner at the only restaurant in town. Better yet, splurge and rent a Syrmata for the night to enjoy the sunset or sunrise from your own balcony.

Swimming in the Kleftiko Caves

It's not every day you get to visit an old pirate's lair. It is not easy to get to Kleftiko Bay, but it is worth the effort. Visit during a day sailing tour, take a private boat, or walk for an hour and a half to get there.

You will be rewarded with caves and crystal-clear turquoise water that you can snorkel and explore. The best part is that the bay is so remote that you won't be swimming with hundreds of people. Bring your underwater camera, you won't want to miss a shot!

Explore Kastro Castle in Milos

The Kastro Castle Ruins are a must-see during your visit. Not only will you get great 360° views of the island, but you'll see the old town where people lived before the city expanded into what is now known as Plaka.

Some locals still live here and the houses that remain are quaint and charming, just as you would expect from an old Greek neighborhood. There are two churches on top and you will be able to watch the sunset from both.

In addition to a ton of restaurants, Plaka also has three cool museums, including the Archaeological Museum which houses a replica of the Venus de Milos statue.

Beaches of Milos

There are 75 beaches to choose from, and most of them are beautiful! Top beaches like Sarakiniko, Tsigrado and Kleftiko Bay have captivated Instagram, and rightly so.

But there are many others to see. Some are out of the way, some have beach bars, some are great when it's windy, and some are only accessible by boat.

Villages of Milos

In addition to the well-known villages Adamas, Plaka and Klima, Milos has 12 other villages that you can explore. Some are popular and some are remote, but each has its own vibe, energy, and attractions.

There are towns you can miss and others you can skip if you're short on time, however, from fishing villages to port cities, there's something for everyone. Start with Trypiti, Mandrakia, and Pollonia.

The Ancient Theater of Milos

Surround yourself with hundreds of years of history. Enjoy a short walk from Trypiti to the ancient theater and walk around the marble wonder. Sit back and imagine what it would be like to see a play here against the backdrop of beautiful views. On the way to the theater, you'll see the site where the Venus de Milos was discovered in 1820 and now resides in the Louvre.

The Early Christian Catacombs of Milos

Take a short but worthwhile tour of the Roman catacombs, a burial site and place of worship for early settlers from the 1st to 5th century.

The site is close to the Ancient Theater and can be accessed by car (and on foot) from Trypiti. Admission includes a guide and will only cost you around €4.
