The island of Milos sits in the middle of the Aegean Sea. The southwestern-most of the Cyclades, it encapsulates the beautiful beaches, rustic white-washed houses, cyan waters, great food and rich history of its neighbours without the crowds of Santorini or Mykonos.
Its landscape is sublime, with over 70 beaches including some of the most stunning in Greece, often dramatic coastline dotted with idyllic fishing villages and volcanic interior.
The famous Ancient Greek Aphrodite of Milos, better known as the Venus de Milo which now stands as a centrepiece in Paris’ Louvre, was found here in 1820, and the rest of the island has thousands of years of history to discover.
When to go
From April through to October, the climate on Milos is fantastic, with plenty of sunshine and gradual rising temperatures. July and August can be busy, but the beautiful weather ensures it's still a rewarding time to visit.
