Conveniently located near some of the island’s biggest tourist resorts, Milatos itself is a traditional village that is ideal for those who want to enjoy an authentic Cretan experience - sampling the local seafood and simply relaxing and taking in the panoramic views,. Varied self-catering accommodation can be found in Milatos, including authentic townhouses and luxury villas.

Things to do in Milatos, Greece

If the thought of staying in the extremely busy and hedonistic resort of Malia (11km away) is your worst nightmare, then Milatos may just be your ideal holiday rental destination. A traditional Greek village and fishing harbour, Milatos is quiet, relaxing, and largely tourist-free.

There is a pebble beach and a short sandy stretch near the harbour, and as well as relaxing it is possible to enjoy a spot of fishing or swimming here, as you watch the fisherman go about bringing in the days catch.

The main draw of Milatos is the restaurants. If you would like to sample some of the freshest and tastiest fish on the island, then this is the place to come. Most of the traditional seafood tavernas are located around the harbour, and an outside table will be rewarded with fine beautiful sea views.

For a unique experience head to Milatos Cave. This cave measures over 2,000sq metres and dates back to the Neolithic period. It is known locally as the sight of a battle between the local army and Turkish invaders in 1823, and is now something of a tourist attraction, housing a memorial and a small church. Make sure you take a torch though – it's pitch black in there!

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Socrates hotel is in a great quiet location with the beach, Stalis, Malia strip and the old town all within 10 to 15 minutes walk. The staff were all really helpful and did everything possible to ensure my family had a great holiday. The rooms were cleaned every day with new towels and bottles of drinking water provided. The free buffet breakfast had everything you need from continental to full English and was served in a lovely location by the pool. There were always empty sunbeds around the well maintained pool area and the snack-bar that provided everything from toasties to pasta and meat dishes. My only issue with the area was the number of quad-bikes hired out to young lads who spoiled the walk out on an evening and made crossing the road dangerous. However I would defiantly return to this hotel and would recommend it for couples and families of all ages.

The garden area is fantastic (particularly the outside bar) as well as the pool itself. Fantastic views from the master bedroom and the balconies and is only a short drive from the beautiful town of Sisi. Could not recommend this place more highly.
