Sikia is very well known as one of the biggest and most beautiful caves in Milos. Having a height of 5m and width of 20m makes it quite a large cavern to explore and observe. Due to the collapsed roof of the cave it has created a natural skylight which aluminates the cavern with a multitude of colors and reflections.

Considered one of the most photographed beaches in Greece, Saraniko is probably the most popular beach in Milos. The unique white rock formations, crazy landscape, and sapphire waters are truly a sight to behold. Here one can relax, swim, or choose to explore the sites this location has to offer.

Getting to this beach is a little bit difficult seeing as there is no public transportation. However being on a yacht gives you the advantage of gaining access to such places with ease. Guests are spoiled with options from daunting and scary cliff jumps to smaller jumps suited for the more cautious. There are also many little trails available for those seeking an adventurous walk or hike.

This area of Milos is also known for the excellent sunsets it provides when visiting this awesome beach. The years of erosion caused by the wind and water hitting against the rocks has resulted in the terrain resembling the surface of the moon giving it an out of this world sensation. Truly a lovely place to visit for young children and adults, we trust no one will be sorry they decided to head to Saranikos while in Milos!

We are very sensitive in being objective, in each island there are things we admire and others you need to be aware of.

Beaches we liked

Sarakiniko beach

This is probably the most impressive beach in the whole of Milos. Gifted with a truly unique geological profile making it one of the most remote locations in Greece. Probably one of the country’s best beaches and natural spectacles. Located 5km away from Plaka at the northeastern part of the island. Famous for its moon like appearance, surely creating memories of a lifetime.

Tsigrado Beach

A beautiful and secluded beach found between two cliffs on the southern coast of the island. One of beaches in Milos with the most character due to its location and landscape. Famous for being difficult to get to, you’ll have no problem accessing the bay while onboard your yacht. Eliminating the need to walk steeply down to the beach.

Firopotamos Beach

Is a beach surrounded by trees with remarkably blue colored waters, resembling a massive swimming pool. This beach is located in a small bay where a lot of fisherman have made it their spot to fish and live. When seeking shelter from southern winds you will find this to be an ideal location to stop and relax while sailing this beautiful island. 

Papafragas Beach

One of the many extraordinary locations in Milos, when viewed from above witness a wonderful sandy beach with waters which lead between two cliffs meeting to create a small cave entrance to the sea. There a numerous sea caves surrounding this area which offer a lot to explore for the adventurous spirit.

Just a few meters away you will find the ancient town of Phylakope, here you can explore the remaining ruins of walls, structures, and ancient graves now almost all submerged below the sea.  

Fyriplaka Beach

Is a sandy and extremely flat beach located directly next to Tsigrado. With a long coastline and silver sand with massive cliffs taking up the background of the coastline.

It is extremely shallow for some meters before reaching any sort of depth making it a good location for young children to play and splash around in the sea. Allowing parents to not have to be concerned of any unexpected depths occurring suddenly.

A lovely sight when viewed from a distance onboard your yacht.

Trademarks of the island

Venetian Castle

One of the most historical sites in Milos, and probably the last remaining sign of Venetian rule on the Island. “Kastro” was built during the 13th century along with a small settlement called “Chora”. It is located on the second highest hilltop of Milos and is around 280 meters tall. At the very peak is Panagia Skiniotissa (Also reffered to as “Mesa Panagia”). There is also a bigger church you may noticed called Panagia Thalassitra.

You will be amazed at how well preserved the castle is, especially due to turbulent history it endured over the eras. Venturing up to the castle you will notice quite a few ruins, but also some scattered homes and churches along the way. The village was not able to keep up with the speed of the population’s growth which lead to many moving down the hill (This area is now known as Plaka).

Here you can enjoy probably the best panoramic view of Milos, and I would suggest venturing up to enjoy the incredible array of colors offered by the sunset of this beautiful island.

Profitis Elias Chapel

Located on the highest summit on the island of Milos, is Profitis Elias Chapel. A beautiful whitewashed chapel dedicated to the Prophet Elias. Here you will have remarkable views of Milos and the neighboring islands. A truly romantic location when visited at any time of the day.

Old Sulfur Mines

Here you will find crystal clear emerald waters and abandoned factory equipment once used during the 1950’s. Wagon tracks, storerooms, tunnels, and various other remains of the mine are visible for you to see.

It is a very attractive beach where someone can enjoy passing the time tanning, swimming, as well as taking in all the sights on offer from this mysterious historical location.
