If there was one word to describe Milos, that would probably be alluring. Greek mythology appoints Milos as the island of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love. Up until today, the island is considered a major couples destination but also an exceptional choice for sailing enthusiasts. Formed after a volcano eruption, Milos is nature’s playground with astonishing rock formations, caves, secluded gulfs and an ever-changing natural scenery that will leave you in awe. The almost lunar beauty of Sarakiniko with its ashy, smooth, volcanic rocks contrasting the turquoise waters is pure eye candy. Plaka, the island’s capital is among -if not- the most well-preserved villages of the Cycladic complex. Adamandas, Pollonia and Embourio are a few other villages worth exploring. For some unforgettable dives head to Kleftiko, Tsigrado and Papafragas. You will realize why pirates chose Milos as their shelter of preference. Nearby Polyaigos islet has almost unreal glistening, aquamarine waters. For some fresh Greek food head to the local tavernas like Chamos and Bakalikon Galanis.
