Milos Island Vacations

Milos is largely an undiscovered island, with possibly the most interesting coastline of any island of this size in the world. A volcanic island, Milos is known as the island of colors, mainly because of its spectacular, colorful rock formations. Milos is the southwesternmost and 5th largest island of the Cyclades archipelago, only 3-5 hours from ... Read more
Athens by ferry, or 30 minutes by aircraft. The 5,000 inhabitants earn their living primarily through tourism and mining, and to a lesser extent through fishing, farming and agriculture. Milos is also known as "The Island of Lovers" because it is the discovery site of the famous statue Venus de Milo, and every summer it is the favorite destination of thousands of young and not-so-young lovers. Milos island is also very popular because of its multitude (more than 70) and diversity of beaches, more than any other island in the Cyclades.

A beautiful island with truly amazing beaches (each different from the another), Milos is definitely a great spot for a summer vacation. There are lots of great restaurants in Adamas and Pollonia and it is lively without being overly touristic! People here are super friendly and try to help out even when there's a language barrier. It is definitely worth the fairly long boat ride from Athens! Just make sure to rent a car so that you can see everything!

It's all about the beaches on this southern Cyclades island! With about 70 beaches and adorable towns, Milos is a perfect summer destination. The Venus de Milo was even originally found here, and today, you can explore Roman ruins...if you can tear yourself away from your perfect spot in the sand.

H Μήλος είναι το νησί των ερωτευμένων και όχι άδικα! Υπέροχα φυσικά τοπία με σμιλεμένους βράχους στα λευκά, κρυστάλλινα τιρκουάζ νερά, μαγευτικές παραλίες και τα μοναδικής αρχιτεκτονικής "κλήματα" που είναι χαρακτηριστικό του νησιού συνθέτουν ένα εκπληκτικό νησί που είναι ιδανικό για ήρεμες διακοπές εμπλουτισμένες με δεκάδες δραστηριότητες. Μη χάσετε να κάνετε το γύρο του νησιού με ιστιοπλοϊκό γιατί θα δείτε παραλίες που δεν είναι προσβάσιμες με αυτοκίνητο και θα αισθανθείτε καλύτερα τη φυσική ομορφιά του νησιού. Σε αυτό το νησί η ομορφιά σε αγκαλιάζει σε κάθε γωνιά. Δεν είναι τυχαίο ότι είναι ο τόπος καταγωγής της θεάς του έρωτα και της ομορφιάς Αφροδίτη!
