Milos Greece

Welcome to the island of Venus de Milo, the famous statue that now lies in the Louvre. It’s volcanic past makes the island intriguing in terms of nature, with different coloured rocks, natural springs and over 70 pristine seas. Plaka, the capital of the island, is 200 meters above the gulf of Milos, complete with a castle and appealing churches.

Some 2 kilometres on the coast east of Adamantas, go north towards Apollonia to Sarakiniko (a name of Arabic origin, related to Saracens) and discover one of the most outstanding terrain on the island. The lunar-like topography with different rock formations descends into the sea, which works its artistic magic on them.

Visit the catacombs in the village of Tripti, enjoy activities such as diving, kayaking and hiking on the island's dirt roads. Nearby islands of Antimilos and Polyaigos fall under the Natura 2000 area, so does the coastal area of Western Milos and the wider region of Profitis Ilias.
