Sightseeing: 21 things to see in Milos island

Milos is the southernmost island of West Cyclades. Due to its volcanic background, Milos has a special geology and unique beaches. The strong volcanic eruption that happened in Milos millions of years ago formatted its present landscape with reddish cliffs, soft sandy beaches and underwater sea caves. Sarakiniko, Firiplaka, Paleochori and Tsigrado are the most special beaches in Milos, while very characteristic are the fishing villages, such as Klima and Firopotamos. Interesting sightseeing in Milos are the Christian Catacombs and the Sea Caves of Kleftiko that are accessible only with excursion boat from Adamas or Pollonia.

In the past, the sea cave at Papafragas, on the island of Milos, served as a pirate base. Today, its crystal clear, turquoise waters await those who dare to trek down the treacherous trails to its paradise. Despite the hot and humid weather, everyone in our tour group played it safe, choosing to snap photos instead of bones!

A beautiful rainbow composed of a multitude of pretty flowers flanks the white washed walls surrounding a church in Adamantas, Milos.
On a quiet street in the seaside town of Adamantas, on the island of Milos, I came across a simple home, fronted by this old, weathered door. Paint stripped, no doubt, from its close proximity to the salty sea, the metal hardware, so far, seemed to be holding up. But more importantly, the address, which appeared newly stenciled, lead me to believe that there is still plenty of life behind it.
