The longest beach of the island, which owes its name to the many shellfishes populating the salt-lake located immediately behind the beach. Fine white sand and clear water make Hivadolimni an unmissable destination especially for those who, on windy days, love kitesurfing and windsurfing. On the hill above the beach you can find the Achivadolimni Milos Camping
This place is really special, if you're expecting the classic beach you have never been so wrong in your life. After parking the car, walk down the trail and you will find a fantastic landscape, which could recall the lunar landscape.
Immersed in white volcanic rock shaped by water in year thousends you can take a nice swim in a strip of calm and clear water. In front of the beach, within swimming distance, there is a little island, more a less a rock, from which you can enjoy diving. But be careful to the sea conditions, because in some days currents are very strong. Visit Sarakiniko early in the morning (try to arrive before 8am) beacause is one of the most popoular beaches Milos, and around 10 o'clock Sarakiniko starts to fill up with tourists and becomes unbearable and looses its charm. Do not stop at the beach but try to see as much as possible, walking around this white rocks is something unpayable, of course pay attention while enjoying the view because you may slip with simple flip-flops.
Agios Sostis Beach, only a few hundred meters away from Provatas Beach, is very quiet even in August. Golden sand, rocks and stones, and clear water are perfectly merged in this beatiful beach. For lunch or just for a break, above the beach you can find the restaurant Tarantela
Mandrakia is a small fishing village formed by several syrmatas (fishermen's houses carved in rocks). Thanks to the rocky sea bed, it is really a good place where to take a bath, beacause the water is really crystal clear. And if you get around this area at lunchtime stop at the Medousa Cafè
, one of the finest restaurants Milos, and enjoy the view!
Paleochori beach, surrounded by high red, yellow and green cliffs, with his long stretches of sand and stones interspersed with rocks and reefs, is one of the most impressive beaches of Milos. The water is clear and really warm thanks to the presence of volcanic currents. Be carefull when you walk in the see because you could burn your feet by stepping on vey very hot stones... There are several bars on this beach including the Deep Blue Beach Bar
located in the east side.
Sandy Beach equipped with umbrellas, chairs and a beachbar where you can relax under the shadow of juniper trees. After relaxing take right and walk up to the church, continue walking and you'll arrive to a perfect place from which you can take great photos.
For sure one of the most beautiful places in Milos. Kastanas is a rocky beach with crystal clear waters reflecting spectacular colors. Is not one of the most famous beaches Milos, so enjoy it now that it is still not well known and crowded. To reach Kastanas you'll have to take a dirt road running from Pollonia, follow the signs to Voudia, go inward and then take the first left. Roads in this area are not really the best, so we advice to rent a quad
Rocky beach, where water shaped caves in the rocks making the landscape very beautiful. Due to the sharp ground it is not the right beach to lie down and relax, but we recommend to visit Kapros to admire the beauty of the place and take some unforgettable pictures.
Really amazing colors will wait you in Tsigrado; take your camera with you! To fully enjoy its beauty you should go there when the sea is calm (not on a windy day) because colors really change completely. (Unfortunately) Tsigrado is destination of many organized boat trips, therefore you should visit this bay in the very early hours of the day; if you make an effort and manage to arrive there at 8am you will enjoy every corner of Tsigrado. You can reach the beach either by sea (trough organized excursions
) or by land (we recommended that). Like for every beautiful thing, to enjoy Tsigrado you will have to struggle, the last effort to get there will be to to improvise yourself climber. Do not worry, there is a rope that will help you getting down along the rocky wall. Take shoes with you it will be easier. If you don't feel at easy with climbing the only way to see this beauty is by participating to a tour starting from Adamas or Pollonia.
On the beach you'll find a trashcan that at the end of the day can not hold all the waste dumped by tourists, causing an unwatchable pile of waste ruining the beauty of this place of paradise. Please keep the garbage with you and throw it away when you're back home.
Kleftiko Bay is accessible only by sea, all the excursions
that depart daily from Adamas, include a stop in here. Rocky formations of unquestionable beauty surrounded by a exceptional sea form natural caves wich you can explore by snorkeling or diving.
A few minutes from Tsigrado away, there is a beach with fine sand and clear water. Partly equipped with umbrellas and chairs you can also find a bar. Suitable for families with children. For those seeking solitude and contact with nature is not ideal.
Sikia Bay, located near Kleftiko Bay, is also accessible only by boat. Through a rocky arch you can reach a pebble beach where you can stop for a break. Some boat trips stop here for lunch, and if you're lucky and choosed the right trip, you can enjoy a fish barbecue and a fish soup right on the beach.
Located near Kapros, Papafragas landscape is enchanting, a strip of water between rocks, connected to the sea due to the presence of a rock bridge.
Small black sandy beach where a rocky arch gives this bay a special beauty. Wild beach, not popular, suitable for nature lovers. If you love camping in the wild, this is an ideal and quiet place. Gerontas is reachable trough a dirt road which ends about 10 minutes away from the beach. So arm yoursel of good will and walk down; You'll not regret it.
Three beautiful beaches, linked together by paths on the cliffs behind them. You can reach them in about one hour through a dirt road starting from Adamas. By renting a quad reaching these shores will be easier and for sure funnier. Uncrowded even in August, maximum you'll find some naturist in search of utter solitude. Along the road to Agios Ioannis lies the monastery of Agios Ioannis Siderianos.
Ammoudaraki is the beach you can see behind the rock. As in many other beaches in this area you'll hardly find many people also in high season! To get an idea of this area I suggest you to give a look at the pictures on the map.
Triades consists of three beaches separated by rocks. The first is perhaps the most popular, but if you prefer not to have too many neighbors just walk further to the next one. In the map you can admire the beauty of this place.
Mainly Traides-Ammoudaraki area consists of a series of bays and coves lightly frequented, where it is not hard to find a secluded place for privacy lovers.
