Your Home Away From Home

Most upscale hotels can be found outside the main town, where there is enough space for pools overlooking beautiful blue sea and lux accommodation. Romance flourishes at Volcano luxury suites. This adults-only retreat keeps the attention to detail making it perfect for a couples retreat. Otherwise, choose an Airbnb such as Archinos by the Sea, where you can stay in traditional cave houses usually occupied by fishermen.

Wind Down At Night

After long days at the beach, you’re sure to be ready for a night on the town. Start off with finding one of Milos’ many delicious restaurants – OKTO is an obvious choice. Ran by two Michelin-starred chefs, enjoy Mediterranean food reimagined and presented at a level that’s unbeatable.

Forty beaches To Lounge On

Milos has no shortage of stunning beaches. In fact, one of the most famous beaches in Greece, Sarakiniko bay, can be found here. It’s no secret why this beach is a must see – it almost looks alien and unreal due to the white limestone moonscape which meets stunning azure waters.

Other beaches worth a visit include Papafrakas, a beach you have to swim to! A long channel, partly covered by a cave, is your way of getting to this sandy heaven. Otherwise, for a more conventional swim, go to Mandrakia, which has welcoming white sands with a restaurant known for being far better than your average seaside fare named “Medusa” on the shoreline.
