Beaches

Milos has over 75 beaches. Golden sandy beaches, with deep blue waters and curious colorations of rocks captivate all visitors. Sparkling, clear waters and fine sand are the hallmark of Milos’s coastline, making the island an ideal destination for beach-lovers who can choose to visit a different beach each day, with varied landscapes and shelter according to the wind’s direction.
In August, a period marked by strong northerly winds, the beaches along the island’s southern shore are sheltered, while the western coast is sheltered from southerly gusts. Milos’s extensive road network offers access to most beaches, starting from the expansive harbour at Adamantas with the beaches at Papikinoy and Ahivadolimni. Your access to more distant beaches is by good dirt road. Ayios Ioannis and Triades on the western coast can be reached by dirt and dangerous roads, although access, especially in the early summer, is difficult by vehicles without four-wheel drive.

The northern beaches of Milos are shaped by a sheer, rocky coast and the barren terrain resembles a lunar landscape. These beaches are not recommended for swimming when strong northerly winds are blowing. The beaches located in the north shore are Sarakiniko, a small, somewhat remote and quiet cove; Mytakas, Alogomantra, Papafrangas, and Ayios Konstantinos are dotted with caves, rock formations that offer natural bridges, and snug patches of sand. These beaches are not organized, but the beauty of the landscape more than compensates the visitor for the lack of facilities.
Via Pollonia you can reach the beaches on the eastern coast. Few of them offers facilities and most are pebble or shingle. They are accessible by road and there are a number of remote sand coves accessible by boat from Pollonia.

The western coast is the least accessible, but it’s worth braving the rough tracks,with suitable vehicle, to enjoy the totally unspoilt landscape. Bathers should bring drinking water because there are no shops or other facilities beyond Ahivadolimni.
Beaches on the western shore include the twin beaches at Ayios Ioannis, accessible only by boat; Triades, with its three sand coves; and the striking sea caves at Ammoudaraki. Milos’s southern coast is accessible by road and sheltered from the August (meltemi) gusts and northerly winds. These sand beaches are well organized offering you facilities.

The most picturesque is the beach of Yerontas, with its dark-colored sand, pristine waters, and dreamy landscape. Ayia Kyriaki, a pretty beach with coarse sand and white pebbles about eight kilometers from Adamantas, offers a restaurant, beach bar, and water sports facilities. Other beaches include Paliohori and Provatas, a seaside village seven kilometres from Adamantas with golden sands, rocks, and shallow waters offers restaurants, cafes, fish taverns, and every kind of accommodations. The beaches at Fyriplaka and Tsigrado may not offer tavernas but swimmers will enjoy the grey-hued sands and unique landscape. Fyriplaka offers some facilities, and beach umbrellas and sun beds are also available at Portokali
