Sarakiniko Beach Milos

Top 5 beaches in Milos, Greece

I love being active while on vacation. Hiking until blisters form, racing from city to city to see as much as possible before my vacation days run out. But sometimes you need a week of nothing. A week of letting go of everything back home, to relax and recharge. Leaving your laptop at home, phone on airplane mode (except when posting a picture to Instagram, or course), to chill on a beach somewhere far away. Obviously with a cocktail and a snack within arm’s reach. Need a week like that? Boy, have I got the island for you! In this blog: the 5 most beautiful beaches in Milos, Greece.

 

1.    Sarakiniko Beach

Always wanted to experience what sunbathing and swimming on the moon would feel like? Well, good luck with that. There’s no water on the moon. Dreams crushed. But no worries! Sarakiniko Beach is the perfect, realistic, alternative. The white, smooth, rocks give this place a mysterious vibe. And the crystal-clear water does the rest. Make sure to come early, for the best light and the least amount of tourist. Because I know we all like to pretend we’re the only people around. Got a GoPro Dome? Bring it! See why, below.

2.    Papafragas Beach

Well, calling this ‘cove’ a beach, is a bit of a stretch. But it definitely is something else. Located a quick 10-minute scooter ride away from Sarakiniko Beach, this is the perfect late afternoon spot to snap a few pics. Be careful, though. The way down is not the safest, and on your own risk. Maybe take of your flipflops before you make your descend. Good luck!

3.    Tsigrado Beach

Another one of those secluded beaches on Milos, not for the faint hearted. To access this beach, you need to go down a pretty steep (and pretty shaky) ladder. But don’t worry, the beach itself is definitely worth it. Care for a swim? Don’t forget your water shoes, Greece is not known for its sandy beaches, and Milos is no exception. Check out the Instagram photos below for some inspo!

4.    Firopotamos Beach

Unfortunately, we got here too late in the day to actually enjoy this adorable little beach. Hidden away on the very north side of the island, close to Plaka. Firopotamos Beach is actually one of the few beaches we visited that offered comfortable beanbags to lay on. But don’t limit yourself to sunbathing. While the area is small it’s full of Instagrammable locations. I’ll share some of my faves.

5.    Paliochori Beach

Milos is an island. Duh. And islands can get very windy, especially in the low season. Don’t let these winds discourage you. We spend a good hour trying to find the best beaches for this exact scenario. And we think we found it! It’s located between two cliffs that keep the crazy winds to a minimum. Grab yourself a chair (they go for about 15 euros each), a cocktail and enjoy. Bonus tip: there’s a restaurant on this beach that cooks their fish right in the sand. A must visit!
