Milos Island Greece: Top 5 Things To Do

I must admit that I am very lucky. I visited the island of Milos, one of the most beautiful Greek islands, along with my best friend Vlasia. She comes from Milos so she knows the island very well. During my stay there she took me to the best places on the island. So here is my list of what to do in Milos island Greece.

Milos Island Greece: Top 5 Things To Do


Spend the day on the beach

Milos Island is famous for its beaches. It has more than 75 small and big beaches some accessible by land and some by water. Here are some of the best:

Sarakiniko Beach

Firiplaka is a long beach with white sand, pristine waters and big rocks. It is an organized beach with a small beach bar.

Take a boat tour around the island of Milos

A visit to the island of Milos is incomplete if you don’t do a boat tour around the island. It gives you the chance to swim in places only accessible by boat and see the island from a different angle. There are a lot of tours available and they cost around 50 € per person including food and drinks. I totally recommend the one by sailing boat. All the boat tours in Milos depart from the village of Adamas, they take you across the shoreline of Milos making stops along the way. The highlight of the journey is Kleftiko. There you will be able to swim around the small caves and see the strange rock formations. This tour will take you to many points of interest around Milos.

Visit the beautiful villages of Milos

Klima

You should visit the traditional little village of Klima. This beautiful village has coloured houses that are carved within the rock and are called Syrmata. They have two floors. On the ground floor, the fisherman keep their boats protected at winter when the weather is bad and on the first floor lives the family.

Mantrakia



It is another traditional fisherman’s village in Milos with the houses carved within rocks just like in Klima. It has a few rooms for rent and a taverva.

Stroll the cobbled roads of Plaka

Plaka is the capital of Milos island. It is built on the top of a hill. From there you can enjoy a magnificent view of the gulf of Milos. It is particularly nice during the sunset. The village is full of traditional white –washed houses with colored windows. You will find a lot of restaurants, bars and little shops along the narrow roads. Also, you can visit the archaeological museum that has a replica from the Venus of Milos that is currently on display in the museum of Louvre in Paris.

Eat, the food is delicious!

I must admit that I am a fan of Greek food. I believe you can find tasty food all around Greece but there are some places that are special. Milos island is one of them.

This seafront taverna is located in the beautiful seaside village of Apollonia. I have eaten there many times. It offers a big variety of dishes and it’s a great place to eat fresh fish.
