MILOS

Dive into Another Era

Most people know the island as the place where the famous statue of Venus, or Aphrodite, now in the Louvre Museum in Paris, was discovered. It is only recently that tourism has noticed the beautiful beaches of this Cycladic Island, its rocks, its clear waters and landscapes.

Milos Island is "the Island of Colours" thanks to its splendid, manifold beauties of volcanic origin.

Milos is the most Western island of the Cyclades, in Greece. It has 4,966 inhabitants scattered over seven small towns (like Adamas, Plaka, Tripitì). The island is ample, due to the very large and beautiful gulf is in the very middle of it, which gives the island a horseshoe shape, for 151 km2.

There are more than 70 beaches, each one with its own characteristic and beauty. Milos does offer an interesting and unforgettable vacation. The months of April and May are ideal to see the island blooming, to smell its keen perfumes, and to ride around to see exceptional wild landscapes.

In September and October the colour of the sea, the beautiful sunsets, and a gentle breeze give Milos Island a calm atmosphere and allow you a very restful vacation.



 

The Magic of Milos

Dive into Another Era

Besides its history and natural beauty, the heart and soul of the island is its flourishing gastronomy; from traditional  local recipes that date decades ago to the modern impressive wide range of restaurants that offer top notch flavours and quality services, without diverging from the spirit of the local production.
