Milos
Start the virtual stroll at the place of your choice by selecting a key location...
The beach and the lake of Achivadolimni, south of Milos Bay
One of the most beautiful beaches of Milos, ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing. It is named after the small lake just behind, which means "Clam Lake". Continuing the road, you enter the western part of Milos, very wild and ideal for hiking, but the paved road soon becomes a dirt road.
Fyriplaka, Tsigrado and Provatas, three beautiful beaches of the southern coast
There are so many amazing beaches in Milos that you'll not be able to say which one you prefer, but Fyriplaka will be high in your ranking. A paved road, a trail section, then you go down a path. The effort is worth it, you can quench your thirst at the friendly beach bar and the beach, partly sandy, is really scenic!
Fyropotamos, beach and syrmata in a scenic landscape
A small church perched on a spectacular rocky cape, a wind-sheltered bay with a beautiful sandy beach, crystal clear waters and typical fishermen's houses of Milos (the "syrmata") are the scenic setting you'll discover in Fyropotamos, on the north coast of the island.
Kleftiko, the spectacular pirate hideout
With Sarakiniko Beach, Kleftiko is probably the most photographed place in Milos. Located near the south-west cape of the island, this former pirates' den can only be reached by boat. Access by land is possible, but by goat trails through wild landscapes where live the vipers of Milos... Up to you!
Klima, the most famous multicolored fishing village
This multicolored fishing village is one of the most visited places in Milos. The houses are "syrmata", typical dwellings where the ground floor is a boat shelter, while the first floor is occupied by the fisherman and his family. Klima is not the only village of this type, but it's the largest and the most impressive.
Mandrakia, a typical fishing village on the north coast
One of the most beautiful fishing villages of Milos, with "syrmata" nestled around a small natural harbor, a pretty church, a tavern with panoramic views. No large beach but many picturesque spots to swim in crystal clear water. Wonderful!
Mytakas, a tiny fishing port on the north coast
A tiny fishing port on the north coast of Milos, very exposed to the wind, with small sandy beaches, rugged rocky landscapes and a spectacular sea view on windy days.
Paliochori, the famous multicolored beach on the south coast
If you want to discover why Milos is nicknamed "the island of colours", this is where you have to come, on the south coast of the island. This beach of golden sand, very popular, leans against an incredible multicolored cliff. With turquoise waters and blue sky, Paliochori is a feast for the eyes!
Papafragas and Kapros, two amazing beaches of the north coast
On the north coast of Milos, two nearby beaches are famous for their picturesque scenery: Papafragas and Kapros. They are located along the north road, 3 km from Pollonia. Papafragas is the most spectacular: a narrow canyon separated from the sea by a rocky arch. Difficult and dangerous access, vertigo guaranteed!
The beach of Papikinou, east of Adamas
This long shady beach, partially equipped, is located east of the port of Adamas. Following the seaside, you will first find a series of taverns with nice terraces overlooking the water and then, just after the Mining Museum, begins the beach, drowned in the vegetation. A very nice stroll!
Plaka, capital of Milos, and its kastro
Capital of Milos and most beautiful village of the island, Plaka is a jewel set nearly 200 m above sea level at the foot of a hill crowned with a Venetian kastro and beautiful churches. It's a car-free village with nice surprises in its alleys. Don't leave without discovering the esplanade of Panaghia Korphiatissa and its amazing panoramic view!
Pollonia, the famous seaside destination in front of Kimolos
Our virtual stroll is now approaching the village and the many restaurants and cafes that line the seafront.
Sarakiniko, the famous beach with a lunar landscape
Impossible to visit Milos without going to this strange beach, the most famous of the island. It's the most photographed place of the Cyclades, with the windmills of Mykonos and the cliffs of Santorini. The dazzling whiteness of the site, if it were not contrasted by the blue of the sea and the sky, would give the impression of being exploring the Moon...
Adamas, the port of Milos
The stroll passes here in front of the marina pier, where we will of course make a small detour to admire the fishing boats.
Trypiti, the village above the catacombs
Trypiti is the village overlooking the catacombs, the ancient theater and the fishing village of Klima. There are good restaurants, with splendid views, and a beautiful church. There is a parking lot at the north entrance of the village, don't try to go through the village by car, the main street is narrow and it's impossible to cross or turn around.
Zefyria, former capital of Milos
Built by the Venetians in the 13th century, Zefyria has been the capital of Milos until 1767. Unfortunately, that year, earthquakes destroyed the city, releasing harmful gases that caused epidemics. The city was abandoned and nowadays it's a sleepy rural village around a beautiful church and the capital is Plaka.
