GETTING AROUND MILOS BEACHES
The best way to explore Milos beaches and the island is to rent a scooter, quad bike or a car for the day and make your way around Milos Island at your own pace.
Public buses are another option of getting around Milos but the majority of them only operate in the city and not to the beaches.
There are a number of places to organize a scooter, quad bike and car rental in Milos which can all be found within walking distance as soon as you step off the ferry in the main harborside town of Adamantas.
Scooter rental Milos:
I personally rented my scooter from Nicki Motors and found them to be the most affordable and reliable. From €25 per day, Nicki Motors offers scooter rentals and ATV rentals, but not car rentals. Click Here to check availability and prices.
Car rental Milos:
If you would prefer to rent a car in Milos, it’s best to book online in advance to secure a set of wheels for when you arrive. There are many small cars and SUV’s available to rent that will get you around the island safely. Click Here to check availability and prices.
Note: An international driver’s license is mandatory for renting scooters and cars on Milos island, so make sure to have this ready to present along with your passport or ID.

15 BEST MILOS BEACHES
#1 SARAKINIKO BEACH
Sarakiniko Beach is one of the most Instagrammed beaches in Greece! Its chalky white, moon-like surface is one of the many features of Sarakiniko Beach Milos that makes this unique location so popular!
WHERE IS SARAKNIKO BEACH
Sarakiniko Beach is located on the northern stretch of coastline, a short ten-minute drive from Adamas or fifteen-minutes drive from the island’s capital city, Plaka.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT SARAKINIKO BEACH MILOS
Out of all the Milos beaches, Sarakiniko is the most talked-about beach amongst locals and tourists.
Sarakiniko is a unique beach with white volcanic cliffs, featuring a chalky surface of what you could imagine finding on the moon.
Sarakiniko Beach is not your typical beach with a long stretch of sand but rather a small inlet with shallow waters. The colour of the water at Sarakiniko is a wonderful shade of blue and the perfect spot for a relaxing swim.
Be sure to explore along the coastline to east and west of Sarakiniko Beach Milos which is where you will find a range of cliff jumps, caves and rockpools in the area.
My personal favourite spot for swimming at Sarakiniko Milos is inside the cenote which features a natural arch and a blue lagoon.
BEST TIME TO VISIT SARAKINIKO MILOS
If you visit Sarakiniko Beach early in the morning for sunrise, especially during the peak summer season, you’ll most likely have the entire beach to yourself. From 9am onwards, crowds of tourists start to roll down to Sarakiniko and tend to set up shop for the day.
NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AT SARAKINIKO MILOS
If you rock-hop along the coastline to the east of Sarakiniko Beach you can find the famous Sarakiniko Shipwreck. An old tanker ship that crashed into the rocks during a storm in 2003 and has since become a popular tourist attraction.
Last but not least, be sure to check out the old mining tunnels that are dug into the sides of the valley leading down to Sarakiniko beach.

#2 PAPAFRAGAS BEACH & CAVES
Next on the list of the best beaches in Milos is Papafragas Beach. An idyllic, rectangular-shaped cove surrounded by tall cliffs and natural caves makes Papafragas a very unique location and unlike any other beach that I’ve ever seen!
WHERE IS PAPAFRAGAS BEACH
Papafragas Beach is located on Milos’s northern coastline, just five-minutes drive from Pollonia or a fifteen-minute drive from Adamas.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT PAPAFRAGAS MILOS BEACH
Depending on the weather in Milos at the time, Papafragas Beach can either be a dream location looking exactly like it does on the postcards or it can be gloomy and not as inviting as you thought it might be.
Nevertheless, Papafragas beach is well worth stopping into during your lap around Milos Greece.
You can walk around the rocky headland to take pictures of Papafragas Beach from above, or carefully walk down the stairs that are cut into the cliffside and make your way down to the sandy shoreline and crystalline water.
Papafragas Beach itself lies inside a chiseled cave-like channel. You can wade in the shallow waters close to the shoreline or swim out through a natural arch and around the headland to discover more sea caves and secluded coves.
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Note: It’s recommended to assess the conditions of the ocean before heading down the cliffside stairs to Papafragas Beach. If it’s really windy and wavy, you don’t want to risk getting washed around down in the caves. If the conditions are questionable, be ocean smart and enjoy the views of this Milos beach from the top of the cliffs.

#3 ALOGOMANDRA BEACH
Alogomandra Beach, also known as Paralia Alogomandra or Agios Konstantinos, is one of my favorite Milos beaches to visit. Monolithic caves and turquoise waters await to be explored.
WHERE IS ALOGOMANDRA MILOS BEACH
Alogomandra Beach lies between Sarakiniko Beach and Papafragas Beach along the northern coastline in Milos. From Adamantas it’s a fifteen-minute drive and from Plaka, it’s around the same distance.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT ALOGOMANDRA BEACH MILOS
Alogomandra Beach is a secluded little hamlet of sorts, boasting glistening white sand, blue lagoons and a large cave that’s in the shape of a curling wave!
Alogomandra is one of the more popular beaches on Milos, though if you get there early enough (just after sunrise) you can enjoy this fantastic cove all to yourself before the crowds start rolling in.
Photographers tip: If you want to take some decent photos from inside Alogomandra cave facing out towards the ocean, chuck on the widest angle lens you have to capture it all.

#4 POLLONIA BEACH
Pollonia Beach Milos is most renowned for its sandy shores, waterfront restaurants and beach bars. I spent half a day exploring the small seaside village of Pollonia and absolutely fell in love with the place.
WHERE IS POLLONIA MILOS
Pollonia village and its beaches are located on the northmost eastern tip of Milos island. From Plaka, the drive to Pollonia is around twenty-minutes whereas if you are headed to Pollonia from Adamantas, the journey takes only fifteen-minutes.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT POLLONIA BEACH MILOS
Pollonia beach, as I mentioned earlier, features a long stretch of white sand beach and shady trees line the water’s edge, ideal for escaping the midday sun. Oh and the ocean here is crystal clear!
The surrounding white-washed beach houses and strings of vibrantly colored boats add to the peaceful atmosphere down on Pollonia Beach.
Pollonia is easily accessible by car and scooter so there is no need for hiking down to the ocean like some of the other Milos beaches.
There are many tourist facilities available at Pollonia Beach such as toilets, convenience stores, cafes and tour agencies.
NEARBY ATTRACTIONS TO POLLONIA BEACH
Popular island-hopping destinations just off the coast from Pollonia are Kimolos and Poliegos islands, which can be booked via one of the tour agencies in Pollonia village.

#5 VOUDIA BAY
Voudia Bay is the most underrated beach in Milos, solely because not many people know that it actually exists! Yay for me when I stumbled across this almost deserted Milos beach.
WHERE TO FIND VOUDIA BAY
Voudia Bay is surprisingly only five-minutes drive from Pollonia. Most people will only visit Pollonia for the day and then drive straight back to Adamantas without exploring the outer edges. Don’t make this same mistake!
There is a small gravel road leading off the main road that leads down to Voudia Beach. It’s easily missed so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT VOUDIA BEACH
Voudia Bay is a rather long stretch of beach with pebbly shores and pink pigmented cliffs standing tall above the ocean. I couldn’t quite grasp the beauty of this location and why there were only five or so other beachgoers down here.
Voudia Beach not only features volcanic pink colored cliffs and electric turquoise water but it also has a number of epic caves and miniature hidden beaches along its coastline.
This Milos beach is quite off the beaten track and well worth checking out if you want to enjoy some peace and quiet in the most unreal location, which is almost unheard of during the peak summer months.

#6 TSIGRADO BEACH
Tsigrado Beach, pronounced see-gra-doh, is low-key out of this world! Illuminating reefs, natural caves, cliff jumps and a tricky entrance sums up Tsigrado beach pretty well and not to be missed on your list of Milos beaches to visit!
WHERE IS TSIGRADO MILOS BEACH
Tsigrado Beach is quite easy to find as it neighbors the more popular Milos beach, Fyriplaka, which lies on the southern stretch of coastline on the island.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT TSIGRADO BEACH MILOS
To start with, Tsigrado Beach is tightly nestled between volcanic cliffs and getting down to the beach from the car park can be quite tricky for some but it’s also part of the adventure.
Firstly you’ll have to scale down the cracks in the mountainside, using the ropes as aid, and then finally climb down a wooden ladder that emerges on the shoreline at Tsigrado Beach.
I may make it sound more gnarly than what it is, but it’s honestly not as hard as you think. If you take your time getting down, you’ll be absolutely fine!
Once you’ve made it down safely, find a spot to perch up along the beach and swim out into the shallow waters to explore the many caves, natural arches, secluded inlets and cliff jumps that Tsigrado Milos has to offer!
If you’re not game to climb down the cliffs to Tsigrado Beach, the view from above is just as rewarding.
BEST TIME TO VISIT TSIGRADO BEACH MILOS
The best time to visit Tsigrado Beach is mid-morning to mid-afternoon when the sun is at its peak. During the late afternoon, Tsigrado Milos becomes lost in the shade as the sun begins to lower behind the cliffs.
Tip: Take a mask and snorkel to Tsigrado Beach as it’s one of the best snorkeling spots in Milos!

#7 FYRIPLAKA BEACH
Fyriplaka is the second-most popular Milos beach, after Sarakiniko. Fyriplaka Beach is renowned for its long stretch of glistening white sand, milky blue waters and rocky outcrops.

WHERE TO FIND FIRIPLAKA BEACH
As mentioned above, Firiplaka Beach lies along the southern coastline on Milos island. From Adamantas to Fyriplaka Beach the drive takes around twenty minutes.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT FYRIPLAKA MILOS
Straw umbrellas line the long stretch of beach at Fyriplaka, which you’ll find is the only means of shade at this location so they tend to get occupied very quickly. Best to bring your own beach umbrella if you plan to stay here for a while.
The most iconic feature at Firiplaka Beach is the enormous rocky outcrop about halfway along the bay. There is a natural archway carved into the rock that is possible to swim through. The water is only about shoulder height so it’s perfectly safe to go inside the cave for a closer look.
Apart from this, you can find smaller rock pools and lagoons at one end of Fyriplaka Beach which is ideal for snorkeling.
Fyriplaka is also a great place to watch the sun go down if you stick around long enough. Not a bad way to finish off a full day of beach hopping in Milos!

#8 AMMOUDARAKI BEACH
Ammoudaraki Beach is very much off-the-beaten-path and in my opinion, one of the best beaches in Milos! If you’re willing to go the extra mile to visit Ammoudaraki, I guarantee you will have the beach entirely to yourself.
Search All ∼ Apartments / Hostels / Hotels in Milos
WHERE TO FIND AMMOUDARAKI BEACH MILOS
Ammoundaraki Beach can be found on the far most western coastline on Milos island. The road leading out to Ammoudaraki is windy, bumpy and a little bit tricky in some sections, which is why few people even bother making the mission to get out to this remote location.
From Adamantas, the drive to Ammoudaraki can take up to one hour on a scooter.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT AMMOUDARAKI BEACH
Majestic untouched beaches, crystal clear water and lush vegetation are just some of the things you can expect to find at Ammoudaraki Beach.
There is little to no development on this side of Milos Island Greece, which adds to the ambience of being well off-the-beaten-path.
There are a string of other Milos beaches next to Ammoudaraki that can also be explored on foot. Rock hop around the headlands to discover the nooks and crannies of Silent Beach and Triades Beach, featuring crystalline waters, sea caves and chalky white cliffs.
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Because of the remoteness of these Milos Beaches on the western coastline, it’s recommended to pack plenty of drinking water, some snacks and make sure you have a full tank of gas before heading over to this side of Milos island.

#9 FYROPOTAMOS BAY
Fyropotamos is one of my favorite locations on this Milos beaches list. Featuring a picturesque village filled with white-washed houses, a large turquoise bay, ancient ruins and traditional Greek churches, all of which are surrounded by rugged volcanic cliffs.
WHERE IS FIROPOTAMOS BEACH
Firopotamos Beach is located on the northern tip of Milos island. To reach Firopotamos Beach from Adamantas, the drive takes around fifteen-minutes and from Plaka, it’s a short ten-minute drive.
Fyropotamos is easily accessible by car or scooter. There is plenty of free parking spaces available on the roadside and also down in the gravel carpark by the beach.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT FIROPOTAMOS MILOS BEACH
The beach itself is quite pebbly and difficult to walk on but this only contributes to the vibrant shades of blue in Firopotamos Bay.
Straw beach umbrellas and beach chairs can be found along the shoreline, as well as some nice shady trees to perch up for a while. Simply enjoy the views of the charming town of blue and white fishing villages or go for a refreshing swim in the emerald bay.
Apart from swimming and snorkeling at Firopotamos Beach, I highly recommend going for a wander through the village to visit the Greek church and explore the ancient ruins of an old building which forms the shape of a picture frame. A popular spot amongst tourists to take photos beneath the archway.

#10 PALIOCHORI BEACH
Paliochori Beach is rated as one of the best beaches in Milos. In saying that, every beach in this Milos blog is as good as it gets!
Paliochori is renowned for its seaside restaurants, beach bars, water sport activities, crystalline waters, beach resorts and holiday houses.
WHERE IS PALIOCHORI BEACH
Paliochori Beach lies on the southeastern coastline on Milos island. Paliochori is a twenty-minute drive from Adamantas and there is plenty of free parking spaces available right down by the beach.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT PALIOCHORI BEACH
Sunbeds, cafes, and beach umbrellas line the stretch of coast at Paliochori Beach and large, pink-colored cliffs surround the bay.
The color of the water at Paliochori Beach is insanely blue and you may even come across some thermal hot spots while swimming which is caused by the volcanic components in the area.
There are also a number of watersports available on Paliochori Beach, including jet skiing and kayaking to name a few.
My personal favorite place to eat at Paliochori Beach is Palagos Cafe, which boasts a rooftop terrace overlooking the bay, delicious food and thirst-quenching drinks. A traditional Greek salad at Palagos will set you back €8, €4.50 for a beer and €3 for a coffee.
BEST TIME TO VISIT PALIOCHORI BEACH
The best time to visit Paliochori Milos Beach is early morning to score a beach umbrella for the day before it gets too crowded.

#11 AGIA KIRIAKI BEACH
Next on the list of the best Milos beaches is Agia Kiriaki Beach. This postcard-worthy location is distinguished by its white strip of pebbles along the shoreline which creates an awesome sparkling effect in the sun. On top of this, Agia Kyriaki boasts electric blue colored water, illuminating the entire bay.
WHERE TO FIND AGIA KYRIAKI BEACH
Agia Kiriaki Beach is the next beach along to the west of Paliochori Beach, so you can visit these two Milos beaches on the same day.
Agia Kyriaki is easily accessible by car or scooter and there are plenty of places to park just a stone’s throw from the beach.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT AGIA KIRIAKI BEACH MILOS
A long white-pebbled beach lined with shady trees, rocky headlands, a few beach houses and a dormant volcano on one end is what you can expect to find at Agia Kiriaki Beach in Milos. A number of restaurants, cafes and bars can also be found along the beachfront.
Agia Kiriaki Beach is a popular spot for watersports at the western end of the bay and the best snorkelling spots can be found at the eastern end.
I didn’t spend much time at Agia Kiriaki Beach myself, but it is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Milos and definitely worth checking out.

#12 MANDRAKIA BAY
Mandrakia is a small, picturesque fishing village featuring bays, beaches and colourful houses. Mandrakia Bay often gets overlooked though, in my opinion, it’s the most beautiful village in all of Milos.
WHERE IS MANDRAKIA BAY
Mandrakia Beach lies between Firopotamos Beach and Sarakiniko Beach on the northern shores of Milos Island Greece.
There is easy access for cars and scooters at Mandrakia Beach, and exploring the village on foot is the best way to experience this charming seaside bay.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT MANDRAKIA BAY
Mandrakia is such a small village that you can see all the sights in the short space of an hour, or if you have the time, you could easily spend half a day relaxing at the beach.
Many tourists that visit Mandrakia Beach are only there to take photos of the colourful houses and fishing boats that lie in the bay. Though I must admit, this location is very Instagrammable.
Mandrakia Bay is not the most ideal spot for swimming though in close proximity to the west of the village is Tourkothalassa Beach, a secluded emerald cove perfect for a dip, and on the eastern side of the village, you can find crystal clear rock pools enveloped by chalky-white rocks.
If you visit Mandrakia Beach around lunchtime, I highly recommend enjoying some Greek cuisine by the seaside at Medusa Restaurant.

#13 KLIMA BEACH
Klima Beach’s claim to fame is the row of multi-colored houses that line a beautiful secluded bay in the northern region of Milos island. It’s by far one of my favorite beaches in Milos!
See All ∼ Milos Island Hopping Tours
WHERE TO FIND KLIMA BEACH
Klima Beach is a short ten-minute drive from Adamantas and there is a tar sealed road that leads right down to the seaside village of Klima.
Parking spaces are very limited at Klima Beach and you may have to park further up the hillside and walk down to the village from there.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT KLIMA MILOS BEACH
Klima Beach is a photographer’s dream, an Instagram hotspot and arguably the most colorful fishing village in Greece!
It is said each house is painted a different color so they are easily recognisable by their owners. The layout of the two-story design is a boat garage beneath and a sizeable living area on top.
Since tourism has struck Milos island in Greece, these colorful houses on Klima Beach are no longer used by the local fisherman. Most of them are now holiday homes and are rented out to tourists during high season.
There is no official beach or designated swimming area in Klima but you can go for a dip in the ocean almost anywhere you please.
There is one seaside restaurant down on Klima Beach called Astakas Cafe which is a very popular spot making it hard to get a table, especially around sunset. Best to book a table in advance if you want to enjoy a sunset dinner on Klima Beach.

#14 THIORICHIA BEACH & SULPHUR MINE
Thiorichia Beach is one of the more interesting Milos beaches to check out during your visit. Thiorichia translates to ‘sulphur mines’ in Greek ant that’s exactly what you can find down on Thiorichia Beach.
WHERE TO FIND THIORICHIA BEACH
Thiorichia Beach, also known as Paliorema Beach, is located on the far-eastern tip of Milos Greece.
A gravel road leads all the way down to Paliorema Beach, though it’s only really suitable for ATV’s. I recommend parking your car or scooter about halfway down the mountainside before the road gets too steep and walking the rest of the way, which should take no longer than ten minutes to reach the beach.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THIORICHIA BEACH MILOS
The main attraction at this interesting Milos beach is the imposing abandoned sulphur mine that’s etched into the cliffside. As you pass the mines on the way down to the beach you will see old rail carriages on their tracks, rusty old tools, abandoned warehouses and a labyrinth of tunnels dug into the mountainside.
When I visited Thiorichia Beach, I felt as though I was on the set of a wild wild west movie.
There are no facilities down on Thiorichia Beach so make sure to take plenty of drinking water and snacks with you.
Once you’ve finished exploring around the abandoned mines, head down to the golden sands in Paliorema Bay and take a refreshing dip in the ocean before continuing your day of beach-hopping in Milos.

#15 KLEFTIKO BEACH
Last but not least is one of the most famous beaches in Milos, Kleftiko Beach. This awesome location is made up of insane rock formations, crystal clear bays and natural caves! This is one beach not to miss on your Milos itinerary.
WHERE IS KLEFTIKO BEACH MILOS
Kleftiko Beach is located on the very southwestern tip of Milos island and it’s only accessible by boat.
There are many round-the-island boat tours in Milos and Kleftiko Beach is included in the itinerary.
