Best of Milos

Top itineraries and travel advice in and around Milos
Milos is known for its unique volcanic rock formations that create beautiful scenery and unparalleled beaches with different colors, impressive caves, and crystal turquoise waters. Those stones can even be seen in the Louvre, on display as the Aphrodite of Milos, better known as the Venus de Milo. Sail or drive around the island to check out the unique landscapes, dramatic rock formations, fishing villages, and historical sites.

Previous kimkim travelers have explored the island even further with trips out to nearby Kimolos, with its picturesque main town of Chorio, and uninhabited Polyaigos, known for its impressive white rocks and clear waters. Or stay on the island and take a tour of its volcanic side, where you can spot colorful rock formations, beach views, and the site of the now-inactive volcano.
