Fresh seafood at Pollonia

Pollonia or Appolonia is a picturesque fishing village built around a pretty cove on the north eastern edge of the island.

Pollonia is the second port of Milos and it is probably named after the temple of Apollo that was found at the Pelekouda area near the village.

Pollonia is 10 km far from Adamas and 14 km from Plaka. It is also the port that connects Milos with nearby Kimolos island which is a few minutes away depending on the boat you use.

The village has a nice sandy beach and numerous hotels and rooms for accommodation. There is also a great number of restaurants, tavernas and traditional tapas places where you can taste some of the fresh produce that local fishermen bring to shore every day. From the quay, excursion boats will take you to Papafragas Cave and the Seagull rocks.

On the left side of Pollonia you can see the St. Nicholas church and Pelekouda, a picturesque peninsula which is worth your visit as tradition says that on the small rock that looks like a chair, there is a couple living there eternally.
