Milos (Greece)

Dreamlike volcanic landscapes, legendary beaches and quaint fishing villages – Milos island is dramatic in every sense.

A lunar landscape with otherworldly experiences – Milos a unique and mesmerizing island

Dramatically emerging from the Aegean Sea before you, you’ll be spellbound by Milos’ contrasting volcanic landscape that’s full of refreshing surprises. Its coastline reveals surreal shapes of sculpted rock that captivate viewers for hours, juxtaposed with quaint white stone fishing villages that blend seamlessly into the landscape.

Stepping off the cruise ship, a laid-back Cycladic island retreat awaits. Find peace and tranquility on one of the many beaches and feel the cooling, refreshing effect of the Aegean as you swim in its serene sea caves. Marvel at Cape Vani’s geological formations and travel along its ever-changing coastline to admire multi-colored sea cliffs at Paleochori and see evidence of how the island’s history was shaped by mining.

Arching its way around a central caldera, the island’s volcanic coastline spoils you for choice.  Near Trypiti village, you’ll be able to explore one of the most ancient monuments in Christianity - the Milos Catacombs, where expansive underground chambers and passages were carved into the volcanic rock. Or sit back and relax in one of Milos’ quality terraced tavernas serving only the freshest catch of the day, discover colorful boathouses that magically emerge from the sea in Klima and stroll along Plaka’s hilltop cobblestone streets.

One of the most photographed places in the Cyclades, Sarakiniko is like no other coastal experience. Waves of sculpted pure white rock melt into the bright blue sea and surreal rock formations make you feel as if you have landed on the moon. Formed by historic volcanic eruptions, here you can soak up the sun’s warming rays in surroundings that you won’t be able to take your eyes off.

As the main landing point on the island of Milos, Adhamas welcomes you with open arms. Bright white marble-paved promenades sparkle in the sunshine, cute fishing boats line up along the quays and white stone houses reflect in the blue water as if straight from a postcard. Meander along the busy waterfront, stop at one of its al-fresco cafes for a morning coffee and settle into island life.
