Traditional villages

Klima, Mantrakia, Fyropotamos, Areti, Aghios Konstantinos, Fourkovouni and Empoureio are the main traditional settlements in Milos and they are small fishing harbors. They are built on small creeks, dug on soft stone and their architectural features are quite unique.


With more than 75 small and big beaches of crystal, deep blue waters, multi-colored carved rocks and white-yellow coasts, it is certain that you will be impressed.

Because of the volcanic origin of its ground, Milos has an impressive coastal morphology and diversity. There are white-yellow beaches, bays with pebbles surrounded by stones, and white, red, yellow or black rocks. The sea has distinctive colors and depths and you can find organized beaches for swimming or you can choose more isolated ones.

The road network is very good in the north part of the island and in most of the south beaches. For those located in the east and west side of the island, getting there is relatively difficult and most roads are dirt roads. There are beaches, (such as Kleftiko, Gerakas, Sykia and others) which are accessed only by the sea. Various boats do these trips from the main harbor of Adamas.

When winds are from the north, it is best to choose beaches located within the bay, or better yet in the south side of the island. When the winds are south, we recommend you visit the beaches in the north side of the island.


Milos has five museums and each one is worth a visit.
