Milos, like Santorini, is a volcanic island. It has beautiful nature and multicoloured beaches. Due to its difficult accessibility, it is a bit out of the way for most tourists.

Most of the population is concentrated in the north of the island in the villages of Adamas, Triovasalos, Tripiti, Plaka and Polonia. Although Milos has much to offer, it is not overcrowded with tourists. Everyone can enjoy peace and quiet here.

The coastline is very diverse, with more than 70 beaches of all types around the island - sand, pebble and pebble. Among the most famous and sought-after locations are the "moonscape" beaches of Sarakiniko and Kleftiko with their stunning rock formations. Milos owes its geological diversity to its volcanic origin. Volcanic activity can be observed, for example, in the Kalamos crater, located above Agia Kyriaki beach.

The vegetation here is slightly richer than on the neighbouring Cyclades islands. The highest peak is Profitis Ilias, reaching an altitude of 751 metres, located on the western side of the island. Milos is also important from an archaeological point of view, as one of the most famous statues, the Venus of Milos, has been found here. The original statue is in the Louvre Museum in Paris. The statue was discovered in 1820 by a local farmer in a field. Catacombs and an ancient theatre are located near the site of the discovery.

In the place where the acropolis once stood, there is now the picturesque town of Plaka. The local archaeological museum houses a replica of the famous statue of Venus de Milo, a statue of Poseidon of Phylakopi and a statue of a man called "kouros" from the 6th century BC.

Also worth a visit is the town of Adamas or the pleasant village of Pollonia, which offers restaurants and cafes right by the sea. From here you can also take a ferry to the neighbouring island of Kimolos.
