Milos Island is known to most people as the place where the statue of Venus, or Aphrodite, now in the Louvre Museum in Paris, was discovered. It is only recently that tourism has noticed the beautiful beaches of this Cycladic island, its rocks and its clear waters.
Milos Island is "the Island of Colors" thanks to its splendid, manifold beauties of volcanic origin.
Milos is the most Western island of the Cyclades, in Greece. It has 4,966 inhabitants scattered over 7 small towns (like Adamas, Plaka). Milos total surface is 151 sq. km. The island is ample, due to the very large and beautiful gulf is in the very middle of it, which gives the island a horseshoe shape.
There are more than 70 beaches, each one with its own characteristic. Milos does offer an interesting and unforgettable vacation. The months of April and May are ideal to see the island blooming, to smell its keen perfumes, and to ride around to see exceptional wild landscapes.
In September and October the color of the sea, the beautiful sunsets, and a gentle breeze give Milos island a calm atmosphere and allow you a very restful vacation. The luckier people with boats (see sailors) will reach waters of blue, azure, emerald, green, red and violet colors contrasting with white or pink, or red rocks. At some places along the East- coast of the island all these colors can be found in one spot. The nearby satellite islands also have secluded beaches and landscapes of great beauty.
