WHAT TO EXPECT AT SARAKINIKO BEACH

Out of all the beaches on the island, Sarakiniko Milos 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 color of the water at Sarakiniko is a wonderful shade of blue and the perfect spot for a relaxing swim.

But don’t stop your adventure here! 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 favorite spot for swimming at Sarakiniko Beach is inside the cenote which features a natural arch and a blue lagoon.

 

Microfibre Travel Towel: To pack a towel or not to pack a towel? A standard bathroom towel can take up a lot of space in your bag. Get your hands on a quick-dry Microfibre Travel Towel which is perfect for the beach, backpacking, camping and general traveling.

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. If it’s not too windy and the ocean is calm, the Sarakiniko Shipwreck is one of the best spots to snorkel in Milos.

Last but not least, be sure to check out the abandoned mining tunnels that are dug into the sides of the valley leading down to Sarakiniko Beach.
