Things to do

Kleftiko Beach:

The beach at Kleftiko is undeniably difficult to reach; one must rent a private boat to even get there. However, a cove of hidden caves and the crystal-clear blue water is worth it. Travellers will enjoy renting a boat and visiting more than one of the 15 beaches only reachable by water.

Milos Mining Museum:

The Milos Mining Museum shows visitors the history of the island through the lens of the mining industry. Visitors can see the different types of metal ores found on the island and the history of the settlements during various eras on the island of Milos.

Adamantas:

The port town of Adamantas is home to around 1,700 residents. Both the aforementioned Milos Mining Museum and the Maritime Museum are featured stops that are not to be missed. Additionally, explore the French cemetery, used during the Crimean war.

Catacombs of Milos:

The Catacombs of Milos are open to the public. Tours are included in the price of ticket. The frescoes along the walls show the various storylines of the victims at rest in the catacombs, which are thought to include mass graves. Currently a portion of the catacombs is on display to the public.

Papafranka Cave:

Visit the Papafranka Cave for a double-cave experience. Papafranka's sister cave lies adjacent to this underground area, and both caves provide a glimpse into the archaeology on the Greek isles. The Meltemi winds make visiting this site nearly impossible in the late afternoon.

Ecclesiastical Museum of Milos:

Visit the Ecclesiastical Museum of Milos, housed in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Adamas. The majority of the historical and religious heritage on the island is stored in this museum, including icons, wood carvings, and even pieces from as far as Russia. Post-Byzantine paintings round out this collection.

Weather on Milos

As it is the furthest island southwest in the Cyclades chain, Milos enjoys abundant sunshine and a warm climate year-round. Dry, hot summers with temperatures topping 30°C are ideal for a variety of outdoor activities. Winters are mild and rainy, with temperatures of 10°C. The Meltemi, a group of winds, are dangerous to sailors in the late afternoons from May to October. Affected beaches post a sign warning visitors.

Travel to Milos

Fly directly into Milos Island National Airport (MLO) for the most convenient travel option. Ferries arrive and leave daily, enabling tourists to island-hop. Car-carrying and passenger ferries increase in number in the spring and summer months. Ferries arrive in the port town of Adamas. The Adama-Zephyria Road leads out of Adamas, toward the western end of the island. Continue further west on this same road to see the natural sites on the far western end of the island.

The owner was very nice and helpful and really everything was perfect. Important to know: you really need a car to go for swimming and discover the islands beaches!
