Τhe beaches of Milos

In Milos there are about 70 beautiful beaches that enchant the visitor with their white golden sands, the deep blue waters of the sea and the distinct colors of the bottom, elements which are due to the volcanic origin of the soil. 

Golden waters and fine sand are the special feature of the coast of Milos and due to the large number of its beaches visitors can choose based not only on the beauty of the landscape, but also on the direction of the wind.

In the period of July-August, when strong north winds (meltemia) blow, vacationers have the opportunity to visit the south beaches of the island, while in the season of south winds (rarely in summer), the west and north beaches are an ideal solution for swimming.

Fishing villages
