Milos’s beaches are unique!

If the volcanic geological forms of Milos are interesting, the variety and colors of its beaches are impressive: they show all shades of blue, of green, they can be sandy, stoned or with perlite, a light sand of which the island is a major world producer. Seawaters are always clear and transparent even if deep, like or better than in the Caribbean seas. Easy to reach, difficult to forget!

Milos’s characteristic coast is full of large and tiny unique beaches created by erosion of the various volcanic material forming the island: see Sarakiniko, Agios Konstantinos, Papafragas, Kapros, Provatas and dozens of unnamed others.

Most of the beaches are reachable by well-paved roads, others, like Kleftiko, can be reached only from the sea. Milos’s coastline has colors and forms of unique beauty, and better seen by boat. Boat tours depart from Adamas and Pollonia. Kleftiko is a cathedral in an emerald green sea, almost a lagoon, and cannot be classifies as a beach…Nevertheless it is a “must”.

Only during July and August, some beaches have chairs and/or bars. Paliohori Beach, one the most beautiful beaches, instead, has also restaurants.
