All the secrets of Milos island

Milos Island’s multifaceted beauty is every visitor’s promise land. For those craving for the Greek sun and beaches, or for others seeking sanctuary in the island’s more peaceful corners, but also for the nature loving adventurers, or the culture loving wanderers; the island caters to all.

Tourist destinations


Milos is known for its numerous (more than 75) and beautiful small or bigger beaches, among the Cycladic islands, but also among the Greek islands in general. You can choose from the map, depending on the weather, among the sheltered beaches of the island’s natural bay or the ones more exposed to the winds, on its shoreline.


Milos is mostly inhabited on the east of the island’s natural bay, since the rocky and rough Halakas, Milos’ western part, is unsuitable for the development of settlements and villages. Milos’ picturesque villages and its characteristic sea settlements with the traditional “syrmata”, the rock-cut shelters for the fishermen’s boats, are one of the island’s “trademark”.

Cultural destinations

The island’s long history has bequeathed a rich cultural heritage to the modern Melians. Its volcanic origin, its geology and mining tradition are showcased at the Μilos Mining Museum. Other museums present the island’s religious, folklore, and naval history, while the archaeological sites and other monuments include the prehistoric obsidian «metropolis» of Phylakopi, the ancient town of Klima with the roman theater, the Early Christian catacombs etc.

Numerous cultural events take place on the island each year, such as Milos Cultural Festival and other local fairs.

An attraction of alternative tourism that extends the island’s touristic period throughout the year is the Milos Conference Center – George Eliopoulos.
