Vacations in Milos
The area and getting around
Milos Island doesn’t have an international airport, but flying internationally is doable by changing planes in Athens. If you’re already in Greece on an island hopping trip, you can easily find ferries from nearby islands to Milos. You can also get a ferry directly to Milos from Athens. Once you arrive, taxis are available throughout Milos to reach your final destination.Getting around in Milos
A lot of the beaches are in remote locations where you can’t find buses. So, it’s best to rely on taxis throughout your time on the island. Another popular option is to rent a car that can handle rougher terrain and reach hidden beaches where taxis can’t go.
Travelers and activities
Milos is a paradise for history lovers. The Catacombs of Milos are considered one of the top three most important catacombs in history, and they date back to the first century. It was originally used as a burial site and then a place of refuge when the Roman Empire was persecuting Christians. Another historically rich place to visit is the Ancient Roman Theatre. This was once a giant structure that could host up to 7,000 people, and a visit here will make you feel like you’re back in Roman times. Plus, the sea views are magnificent here.Milos for adventure lovers
Adrenaline seekers won’t be disappointed in Milos with its endless thrilling offerings. Go swimming at an abandoned sulfur mine which is so perfectly preserved that you’ll find rail tracks, workers’ clothing, and the entire structure still intact, rusting by the sea. It’s without a doubt one of the most fascinating (and eerie places) to swim on the island. Another place not to miss is Tsigrado Beach. To reach this hidden beach, you’ll have to descend a ladder through a small opening which opens up to some of the bluest and the most pristine waters on the entire island.
The famous sculpture of Venus de Milo was discovered on Milos in 1820. Since then, it’s been displayed in Louvre Museum.
Top 5 travel tips in Milos
Milos Island is filled with as many spectacular beaches as you’d expect from a Greek island, but Sarakiniko is often considered the most unique one. The white and grey volcanic rocks found along the shoreline have been shaped by nature in such a way that have caused the entire shore to look similar to the Moon’s surface. So, grab your camera and beach towels and head to this spectacular beach, but don’t forget to pack some food as there aren’t any facilities or restaurants nearby. Also, it's a good idea to go early in the peak season, since this one-of-a-kind beach is the most popular destination on the island.2. Visit Plaka
Plaka is the capital of Milos, and it’s filled with shops, cafés, and charming restaurants. You can spend an entire afternoon here walking around, enjoying Greek dishes, and listening to soothing Greek music wafting in the background. While you’re here, go to Plaka Castle and watch the sunset. Plaka Castle was left by Venetians from their rule of the island, and it offers great views since it’s on the top of a high hill.3. Go snorkeling in Kleftiko Beach
Kleftiko beach is accessible only by boat, but it is certainly worth the journey. It is home to some of the most pristine waters and beautiful rock formations on the island. Spend the day snorkeling around hundreds of caves, exploring the underwater world, and simply soaking up the magical turquoise shades of the sea.4. Enjoy a wine tasting in a cave
What could be better than sipping on Greek wines inside a cave that’s been transformed into a wine cellar? Kostantakis Cave Winery offers its visitors exactly that. The friendly manager will share all kinds of interesting facts about the history of the cave and the winemaking process as you try each delicious wine.5. Savor a “volcanic meal” on Paliochori Beach
Paliochori beach is a wonderful sandy beach with pristine waters, and a very unique cooking method. In the sea here you can swim around bubbling areas caused by hot springs. Even better is the fact that the restaurants on this beach cook your meals in hot volcanic sand. Bring your goggles and your appetite and savor this unique experience!
