Ferries to Milos
Milos, the island where the famous Greek ancient statue of Aphrodite was discovered (currently displayed at the museum of Louvre in Paris), is also admired for its marvelous beaches with exceptional seabed due to the island’s volcanic land. Splendid colors, amazing formations, huge rocks which look like they have emerged from the sea bottom, lunar landscapes and crystal waters are just a few elements that make this island so special.
If you wish to dive in the deep blue of the seas of Milos, you have two main maritime transportation options: Either travel by catamaran (Aegean Speed Lines, Hellenic Seaways, and Sea Jets) or book cheaper ferry tickets to travel by ferry boat (Zante Ferries). The trip by high speed vessel is approximately four hours, whereas the itinerary by ferry boat is about seven hours, depending on the intermediate stops. In case you wish to combine your vacations to Milos with daily excursions to other islands, you won’t have trouble visiting Sifnos, Folegandros or Serifos, even Santorini as every day scheduled itineraries take place by the aforementioned ferry companies.
“Adamantas”, the main port of Milos is also a village with many restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels. The capital, “Plaka” is a tiny yet picturesque village built on the highest cliff of the island. It is nice to chill out at Plaka enjoying the sea view with a cocktail. We also recommend a visit to “Klima”, a traditional peaceful village with colorful houses right in front of the sea.
Public transportation is available and quite punctual but we suggest you to rent a car, so that you visit as many beaches as possible. After all, the highlight of Milos is not its nightlife, neither the villages, but the amazingly shaped beaches with the crystal clean waters! Don’t miss the spectacular Sarakiniko, which seems like you have landed on the moon, Papafragas, which is like swimming in a lake surrounded by huge rocks forming a wall, or Pollonia and Agia Kyriaki beaches which are endless, sandy and well-organized, thus ideal for families. Tsigrado beach is also worth visiting especially if you are adventure seekers. At Paleochori beach you will be amazed by the colors of the rocks. Book a daily trip by boat to Kleftiko and Gerontas, so that you dive in emerald waters and explore the interesting morphology of Milos.
