Island of Colors

The result of thousands of years of volcanic activity, the island of Milos features a craggy coastline interspersed by shallow beaches. A major exporter of obsidian as long ago as the Neolithic period, the island now thrives largely due to its booming tourism sector. Turquoise waters and unusual rock formations draw big crowds to the island's coast, while its less-frequented interior retains a quieter atmosphere and clings to its traditional way of life. Hike the island's extensive network of ancient footpaths to discover relics of prehistoric settlements, early Christian catacombs, abandoned pirate lairs, and whitewashed churches precariously perched above the sea. To discover the underwater worlds of Milos, join a scuba-diving tour of the coastline. Use our Greece vacation builder to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Milos.

Where to stay in Milos

Relatively inexpensive compared to the other Cyclades islands, Milos offers comfortable lodgings for budget-conscious travelers. Consider basing your trip in Plaka, the island capital packed with family-run inns and whitewashed villas with sweeping sea views. Adamas, the island's main port, boasts a high concentration of mid-range and luxury hotels with access to impeccable beaches. For an ultimate island experience, explore the small settlements along the coastline, where you can rent a cozy room from a local family or pitch a tent near the sea.
