Discover the best things to do in Milos
• Papafragas is one of the island’s most unique locations. It resembles a natural pool that is enclosed within huge imposing rocks. A cave will lead you to the small sandy beach where you can swim in between the rocks. Forming a natural arch, a hole in the rocks creates a narrow passage that connects the waters of Papafragas with the rest of the sea.
• Alogomadra is a beautiful, narrow beach covered with thin sand. Its light blue waters are clear and calm and you will definitely enjoy swimming there. The seaside cliff right above the beach forms a wide cave where you can sit in the shade.
• Gerakas beach is one of the most impressive places to visit in Milos. A massive cliff with horizontal layers of rocks right above the golden beach makes the landscape seem exceptionally wild and beautiful.
• Located in the northern side of the island, Plathiena beach is a remote and peaceful spot where you can swim or sunbathe undisrupted. Although it can be easily accessed by car or boat, it is not very popular and so it remains unspoilt. We advise you to carry water and snacks.
• Another great option is to visit Thiorichia beach and experience the history of the island first-hand by swimming right next to the old sulfur mines that have been closed and left to decay since the 1960s. The abandoned buildings and rusty wagons, mining tools and tracks will take you back to the island’s past. The soil there is rich in minerals, resulting in a small beach covered with unusual red or bright yellow sand and pebbles.
• The little beachfront houses at Firopotamos will probably remind you of the “sirmata” in Klima. On the small sandy beach there are several trees with a refreshing shadow that offer natural shelter from the sun. On the rocks next to the beach there is the little whitewashed chapel of Agios Nikolaos and the ruins of a very old building.
