Milos is a wonderful little island of Cyclades, full of surprises, special charm, spectacular sunset views, beautiful beaches, excellent food and good-hearted people. Mary and I had an idillc and unforgettable weekend there together. Here is a mini photo story of our best moments on the island!
Sweet and Savoury delicacies:
Before you head to the beaches, don’t forget to stop at Paleos Pastry at Plaka. Neoclassic atmosphere in a traditional building, large yards full of flowers and view of the Castle. Nice selection of pies, local pastries and a delicious “ladenia”.

Color burst at Klima village:
Τhis traditional and picturesque fishing village of Milos is a must see. Admire the colourful two-storeyed houses that in the middle of the 19th century were owned by fishermen. On the ground floor, in the so-called ‘’syrmata’’ the fishermen’s boats were kept, whereas the families used to live on the top floor.
The cliffs at Sarakiniko:
In the Northeast part of the island, you will find the most photographed and famous Aegean landscape: Sarakiniko. The large, sun-bleached rocks give the impression that you’re standing on the moon. Try to arrive really early in the day in order to avoid the strong sun and the noteworthy pack of swimmers.
Secluded, lovely and not organised. Dive into the crystal clear waters and find shelter under the trees. This beach doesn’t get much frequented during summer so it’s the perfect place to relax and read your books undistracted.
The epitome of hospitality at Eiriana Luxury Suites:
It’s the people that make the place, and Anna is surely the best hostess you could ever have. Always beaming and willing to cater for our every need, made our stay at Eiriana Suites, a blast!
What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you wake up? “Breakfast”! Anna surely knows how to satisfy you and a tray filled with goodies greeted us every morning.
Peaceful moments and Mandrakia Village:
Mandrakia still remains a graphic fisher village with in the northern part of Milos. Some tourists rent the old boathouses and spend peaceful days at this scenic little harbour.
Seaside bites at Medusa:
On our last day we were lucky to find a spot at Medousa tavern at Mandrake Village. This family run place serves great seafood and mezedes, prepared with fresh local ingredients. Find your spot on the edge of the water and enjoy the stunning views.

Ηomemade delicacies at Oh Hamos:
Last but not least, the ultimate place to please your palate. An a absolutely yummy array of dishes and a welcoming rustic-quirky atmosphere will put this place on top of your dining list.
