TELL US ABOUT THE STAY? WHERE AND HOW WAS IT?
Between the unforgettable beaches, delicious fresh seafood, and quaint and uncrowded downtowns, it’s truly a slice of paradise. Milos has a port that connects directly from Athens so it’s the perfect jumping off point to spend a summer Greek Island hopping.
ANY GREAT FINDS FROM THAT LAND?
The best way to experience Milos is by ATV or motorcycle. Rent one and get lost! Sail around the Milos coastline stopping at all the beautiful hidden beaches and caves which are only accessible by boat.
Watch the sunset! We loved finding different spots around the island to catch the sunset.
YOUR PLAYLIST OR FAVORITE SONG ON REPEAT?
Lately on repeat Luccastyle’s spotify playlists
Sarakiniko Beach, a unique beach made of lava that’s been bleached by the sun and sea. There is a sandy beach, cliff jumping spots, and a swimming hole open to the ocean.
Tsigrado Beach is only accessible via a steep set of two ladders, but opens out to turquoise blue water that’s perfect to wade in.
Firiplaka Beach is renowned for its long stretch of glistening white sand, milky blue waters and rocky outcrops. Other fav beaches are Papafragas, Firapotomos, Paliochori…
Go on a boat trip to Kleftiko Caves. A must-visit for the perfect blue water and unique coastline! This incredible part of Milos is only accessible by boat.
Klima, explore the traditional syrmata (fisherman’s houses) built into the coastline in Klima, then stay for a glorious sunset.
Visit the Catacombs of Milos. These preserved catacombs date back from the 1st – 5th century and are located nearby the fishing village of Klima.
Venetian Castle is one of the highest points on the island, this castle dates back to the 13th century and is still preserved. It offers panaromic views of the island, and is easily one of the best spots to catch the sunset – if you don’t mind climbing stairs! Try to arrive at least 20 minutes before sunset to snag a good spot, then head down the hill to Plaka for a Greek dinner in town.
GREAT FOOD? WHERE?
Medusa, it’s located adjacent to Mandrakia beach, and serves up fresh fish right on the water. Be prepared for a short wait, and don’t miss the octopus.
O! CHAMOS! located at Adamas. Recipies prepared by raw materials. Meats and cheese from their own farm.
Navagio, the location is wonderful, at seaside, very romantic seafood rest.
Astakas Klima, this waterfront restaurant is the perfect place to watch the sunset. You’ll want to come early to explore the quaint town of Klima, a little fishing village.
Ergina, serves up amazing homemade pasta and lots of other Greek specialties.
Avli Milos, authentic Greek food in the heart of downtown Plaka. You can’t go wrong at this restaurant, with tables all along the side streets!
WHAT DID YOU PACK?
Just bikinis, kimonos, flat sandals, dresses and sunscreen.
WOULD YOU GO BACK? WHY?
Yes! This time with our 2 years old son.
