You'll probably pass million times next to this museum while in Plaka, so why not visit it?
The museum is relatively small but full of items used in everyday-life of citizens of Milos.
The "warmest" part of the concept is that the articles were donated by regular people - clothes, machines, irons, stools... old things they had in their houses, boxes, basements... and it makes it look domestic and common.

Catacombs, Klima, theatre - this will be your visit "package". Theatre is not something that spectacular alone, but combine it with near catacombs, remnant of ancient Milos and Klima below, and you get yourself perfect enjoyment.

Caves everywhere

Caves, caves everywhere :)
Sea caves are one of the characteristics and most beautiful things on Milos.
Everywhere you go - by boat, to remote beaches, inaccessible by car, normal beaches... you'll find caves.
I can't recommend it enough - boat tour around the island! Some may find it expensive, but this is experience to remember! Kleftiko, for example. If you don't go to Kleftiko, don't go to Milos at all. You'll find yourself crying at Kleftiko, believe me. Those colours, that calmness, sea life... you'll feel like in paradise.
Then Sykia cave... Cave beach! Indescribable!
Papafragas, Kapros, Glaronissia and many more. Swim, play and enjoy!

To be short - the museum is very very small, with very few exhibits, and you won't need more than 15 mins to pass through it. However, there is a lot of historical information in English, so you can enjoy in educating yourself, because we usually skip reading longer stories in bigger museums.

I must admit that at first I thought catacombs were some modern art, made as an attraction for tourists.
Oh, how wrong I was...
I am not going to narrate about its history, ways of laying bodies and so on. There are detailed descriptions on Greeka and the very own site this attraction has.
I will just say it's worth visit.
Have in mind that only groups of seven people may enter for one tour inside (and you go with the guide; the entrance is not "free"), so it can happen that you wait a little, but if you are going during season, it will be a few-minutes waiting.

Loved the beaches

It is definitely true that Milos is the most romantic place in Greece. This was my first time visiting this lovely island with my husband. We stayed in a great apartment in Plaka, authentic and traditional with superb view to the sea. The capital and the port are the busiest spots in Milos, but very romantic, especially the quarter of Kastro just above Plaka. The local cuisine of Milos is just great, most of the taverns serve memorable dishes. The plethora of local shops is fascinating, we returned home with dozens of art pieces and miniature landscapes.

The most beautiful aspects of the island are the white sandy beaches and rocky coves. This harmonic combination of green waters and white rocks that surround the beaches is just divine! We personally loved the beaches in the southern side of the island. Many are not organized but the unique scenery makes them very rewarding destinations. My best beaches? Tsigrado and Agia Kiriaki. Difficult hike down Tsigrado but really worth it for the exotic water.

On the occasion of wedding

The first time I visited Milos was the summer of 2010 on my cousin's wedding. I had already seen many pictures of this island from your site as well as from other tourist guides about Greece. Apart from this special occasion, I thought that it was an ideal opportunity to enjoy the sun and spend some time with friends on this fantastic island. We stayed in Pollonia, which was proved a fantastic choice. It is a beautiful fishing village with sugar houses and traditional taverns right by the sea.

My cousin wanted an intimate yet traditional wedding, the relaxed island atmosphere and the surrounding beauty made this day unique for all of us. In Milos I discovered some stunning beaches and among others I visited Tsigrado. It was by far the best beach I have seen in my life, deep blue waters and rock formations, a true paradise, a must visit in Milos. The island is an awesome place to explore caves. Plaka is a quiet village, not so developed but nice for a walk. Your vacation in Milos should definitely include a visit to the beaches of Paliochori and Firiplaka.

So far my greatest holidays in Greece

There is hardly anything left to add to the praise of Milos if you go through all these enthusiastic reviews. Anyway, I feel urged to join in as in September 2011 I spent there one of my best holidays in Greece.
We had intended to go to Plaka as a friend had recommended the place. No doubt, you must see Plaka when you are on Milos. Yet, unfortunately, already a month before our vacation all the apartments we tried to book were not available. So we decided to go to Pollonia, and when we arrived there, we immediately realized that this was even the better choice for us: ( In September ) a cosy little village, a very clean sandy beach with shady trees, good access to the clear water, and quite a number of excellent taverns nearby, though, after all, we didn't go there too often. As we stayed in a fantastic suite at Villa Sosanna with a well equipped kitchen and a large balcony to enjoy the seaview and, of course, the unrivaled sunsets, we soon liked preparing our own meals and "stay at home" in the evening.
Exploring the island from Pollonia is no problem: There are buses to Adamas and from there to other places of interest. We also covered on foot quite a distance along the bizarre Sarakiniko Coast. Great experience! And as we flew from Athens to Milos, we gained nearly an extra day on the island.
A perfect vacation!

The island with the superb beaches

I don't even know why Milos was not included on my annual trips to the Greek islands. In 2007, I watched a documentary about the Cycladic Islands in Greece. I was impressed by the beauty of this island, the calmness and rocky landscape.

We stayed in Plaka, the atmosphere was lovely and the people very warm and friendly. The local cuisine of Milos is incomparable, we ate in several taverns that served a number of local specialties, like sausages, beans and seafood dishes. If you make a stroll around the villages of Milos, you will see the plethora of local shops selling traditional products and art pieces depicting the beauty of the island.

The beaches were just extraordinary with green water and white rocks surrounded the shore. Visit the beaches in the southern side of the island, like Firiplaka, Agia Kiriaki and Tsigrado. In Tsigrado, you get down through a narrow path among rocks and hanged by slopes. As it is not much developed with tourism, the prices in Milos were not very high. Even in high season, you can find rooms at budget prices.

I have visited Milos many times and it has now become one of my favorite destinations in Cyclades, for its natural glory and the rocky landscape. It doesn't matter where you stay in Milos, all the villages are nice with traditional houses and narrow paved streets and alleys. For my opinion, better stay in a beach hotel but an inland village can also give you a true aspect of life on the island. My favorite is of cource Pollonia and Agia Kyriaki, if you want something more quiet.

All over Milos, there are amazing beaches, particularly in the southern side where the beaches are broader and currents recycle the waters faster. Take the boat trip (from Adamas or Pollonia) and you will see some incredible places, huge rocks and small virgin islands. The geology of Milos is not that common with the other Cyclades islands, maybe it has few similarities to Santorini due to their common volcanic background, but the island is still something special to see.
