Milos is the most westerly island in the iconic Cycladic cluster. Know for its other-worldly landscapes, Milos also boasts a rich history and an up-and-coming gastronomic scene. The quaint fishing villages and hilltop towns, with their typical blue and white exteriors, are the perfect place for those seeking an authentic Greek experience away from the crowds.
With a civilization dating back more than 7,000 years, Milos has a rich culture influenced by the Mycenaeans and the Minoans, as well as more recent historical events such as the Second World War. The north coast is home to picturesque villages, while the south coast offers secluded coves and beaches boasting crystal-clear waters. In the west, the car-free capital of Milos, Plaka, is perched on a hilltop and is the perfect spot to take in the beautiful sunsets. The south-west of the island is only accessible by 4x4, offering more adventurous visitors a chance to explore the most off-the-beaten-track and authentic side of Milos. One of the main draws to this breathtaking island is the incredible landscapes, and every stay on Milos should include a visit to the amazing cliffs of Kleftiko and the lunar-like scenery at Sarakiniko.
