Beach Nature / Park
Visit one of the most photographed beaches on the Aegean Sea at Sarakiniko Beach. Here white and grey sand formations create an interesting landscape--the wind and waves have eroded the sands into cylindrical peaks that resemble the surface of the moon. The soft, sandy beach is tucked between these shapes, so the area creates a one-of-a-kind backdrop for seaside lounging.

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.
