Sarakiniko Beach, Milos
(4.7/5 based on 1,200 reviews on the web)
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. Use our Milos itinerary maker to add Sarakiniko Beach and other attractions to your Milos vacation plans.

  • Beautiful beach can be easily reached by car, car and bus (every hour), you can enjoy immediately for the rounded white rocks contrast with ... deep blue sea. Visited years later is always spectacular, but watch the meltemi which often blows and will allow you to swim on the natural pool (a strip of sea which enters sheltered by the probes of the rocks). Despite the strong winds you will still be able to appreciate the force of the water splashing in the caves of the Creek next to the beach.

  • If you forget the bathers clustered on the banks of the first natural pool, the site becomes exceptional. Must absolutely walk around, climb a little, sinking between the Immaculate rocks and there, not only there is world's largest, but more are believed to be on the Moon! Of course, should be comfortable shoes. There are also caves, in fact, old quarries. Attention, we can be fooled when you see not clear, there is a drop or rather a very high market (50cms?) in what seems at first a flat corridor. In any case, guaranteed extras photos! Nothing prevents to finish his trip by a swim in the warm turquoise waters.

  • A truly surreal scenery out of this world! This amazing beach is covered by white volcanic stone making you feel like you are on the bathing on the moon! Definitely visit if you are in Milos.
