Milos is the third largest and one of the most beautiful islands in the Cyclades and provides the ultimate setting for your enjoyable holidays in Greece. It is one of the easternmost of the Cyclades islands and is close to Kimolos, Serifos and Sifnos. The island is famous for the statue of Venus of Milo, which was originally discovered on Milos and which can be found today in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
The island has one of the most unique landscapes in the Aegean. In the Sarakiniko part of the island you will find the mesmerizing lunar landscape. This is a part of Milos that every visitor needs to see. The volcanic history of the island is what has shaped its unique coastline and has created a range of different appearances. In addition, there are some fantastic beaches that are perfect for those hot summer afternoons, where a refreshing dip in the cool blue waters of the Aegean is just the thing you need to cool down.
Chora is the capital town of the island and here you can see the castle as well as the traditional winding narrow roads and whitewashed houses that are so typical of the islands in the Cyclades. Here you can take a walk around or stop at one of the local cafes and enjoy a nice refreshing drink or coffee.
There are a number of other towns and resorts in Milos that are well worth visiting. The fishing town of Klima is a popular place for travellers to visit, and the colourful setting is one that you will find on many postcards depicting the island. The village of Plaka that was built on the mountain slopes is another nice place to visit, as is the coastal town of Pollonia.
Milos is home to a number of fantastic beaches where you can swim and relax during the summer. Paleochori, Tsigrado and Agia Kyriaki are just three of the great beaches you can find here. Sarakiniko is also an interesting place to go swimming, where the landscape will be unlike anywhere else on the island.
