Papafragas Beach is one of the best beaches in Milos and a must-see on your next visit to this beautiful island in Greece.

Papafragas Milos features an idyllic, rectangular-shaped cove surrounded by tall cliffs and natural caves, all of which makes Papafragas Beach a very unique location and unlike any other beach that I’ve ever seen!

Have you got travel insurance for Greece? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having travel insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. You can read more about why you need travel insurance.

I have been using World Nomads Travel Insurance on every trip and in my opinion, they are without a doubt the best travel insurance provider on the market. I always choose the World Nomads Explorer Plan as it covers just about everything.

BEST TIME TO VISIT PAPAFRAGAS BEACH

If you visit Papafragas 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 Papafragas Milos to score a spot on the small stretch of sand down on the beach. It’s a matter of first in best dressed.

ARRIVING AT PAPAFRAGAS BEACH MILOS ISLAND

When you arrive at Papafragas beach, you’ll find an allocated car parking area at the top of the cliffs.

Parking is free and there is access to the beach via a set of precarious-looking stairs cut into the cliffside. There is a sign at the top stating “dangerous cliffs keep away” but this doesn’t stop people from making their way down the narrow pathway to the shoreline at Papafragas.

In saying that, know your limits and enter at your own risk.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PAPAFRAGAS BEACH MILOS

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 Island 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 chiselled 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

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 Papafragas Milos from the top of the cliffs.
