How can I travel there from abroad?

Milos may boast an airport, yet it is not an international one; it exclusively receives direct flights from the International Airport of Athens. Thus, you need to fly to Athens first and then choose one of the available transportation options to reach the island- taking a domestic flight or boarding a ferry from Piraeus or Lavrion.

How can I travel there from Athens?

You can either take a direct flight from the Athens International Airport or a ferry from a port of Athens (Piraeus or Lavrion).
Ferries from Piraeus are more frequent and you get to choose if you want to travel with a conventional or high-speed ferry. The duration of the crossing from Piraeus to Milos is significantly shorter.

How can I travel there from Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, and other islands?

Starting from another island, the ferry is the way to reach Milos directly. Flights to Milos from the airports of the other Cycladic islands (Santorini, Mykonos, Paros and Naxos) are not available. Hence, if you plan on traveling to the island by plane, remember that a stop at Athens is needed.
