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.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SARAKINIKO BEACH MILOS

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 colour 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 favourite spot for swimming at Sarakiniko Milos is inside the cenote which features a natural arch and a blue lagoon.

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.
