You won't be able to choose from the around 70 beautiful beaches on the island, so special, with clear blue waters and remarkable colors -thanks to the volcanic rocks of the seabed- as well as white gold sandy beaches. Milos has a good road network, which provides access to most beaches. Starting from the big natural harbor, Adamantas consists of the beaches of Papikinos and Achivadolimni. At the entrance of the natural harbor is situated the beautiful fishing village of Klima, with its special buildings and dazzling colors.
Depending on your moods and also the wind, you can visit one of the north beaches when the wind comes from the southwest. The beaches there are mostly rocky. Justifiably, the most famous is the Sarakiniko, with its otherworldly scenery, but also wonderful are Mytakas, Alogomandra, Papafragas and Aghios Konstantinos, with caves, natural bridges and small beaches.
Beaches in the east are accessible by land through Pollonia. Most beaches there have pebbles, but there are also many small ones with golden sand, that are accessible by boat. If you choose to take a boat, in a small distance from Pollonia there is the island of Kimolos, as well as the islet Polyaigos.
As for beaches in the west of the island, the road network is without tarmac and you need to take water with you. This part of Milos is recommended for the lovers of the beauty of the wild landscape: Aghios Ioannis, which, together with its twin beaches, is accessible only by sea, the Triades with the three sandy beaches and excellent sea caves, and Ammoudaraki.
On the contrary, for breaches in the south the road network is very good. There are sandy beaches protected by steep rocks. To get to the very picturesque beach of Gherontas, you need to walk, but the dreamy scenery will definitely make up for it. Enjoy swimming at the beautiful beach of Aghia Kyriaki.
The beaches in Paliochori and Provatas have golden red sand and shallow waters. In Provatas you will find restaurants, taverns and cafes. In Fyriplaka, where there is an organized beach, and in Tsigrado (the access to the beach by land is possible only with rope, which makes it quite dangerous) you will enjoy crystal blue waters, gray sand and a dreamy scenery.
