Best Beaches in Milos

Updated On:

Written By: Pavlos Inglesis

Milos is one of the most underrated Greek islands, in my opinion, but it’s slowly getting lots of attention worldwide. It is now a top destination in Greece but still less crowded than other places such as Santorini and Mykonos. Milos is actually a volcanic island like Santorini and it has such a diversity in its landscapes that will surprise you. The best beaches in Milos are literally scattered throughout the island’s colourful terrain but Sarakiniko and Fyriplaka probably come at the top as the two most visited ones (but not the best, in my opinion).

Milos beaches are extremely diverse and are scattered all over the island, but some of them are only reached by boat

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Most of the main beaches on the island are reachable by the local Milos Buses but I highly recommend renting a car in Milos because you will be more flexible in moving around the island.

Most of the beaches in Milos are not that well organized but some have sunbeds and umbrellas that you can rent (Achivadolimni, Pollonia). There are also some more remote beaches (Tsigrado, Sarakiniko) where you would need to bring your own umbrella and food/drinks and are only reachable by boat (yes, this tour is highly recommended and it will take you to the famous remote beaches of Kleftiko and Klima)

So, the best beaches in Milos are (in no particular order):

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW

  • Are there any sandy beaches in Milos?: Milos has many sandy beaches such as Achivadolimni, Firiplaka, Pollonia and Papikinou beach that are all covered in beautiful golden sand. However, there are many different beaches on the island and some of them are very unique such as the famous Sarakiniko which is basically moon-like rocks from where you can dive into the turquoise waters of the aegean sea.
  • Best way to reach the remote beaches in Milos is by getting on a day sailing tour that will take you around the island to the most remote beaches and the beautiful rock formations of Kleftiko.
  • Best Beach in Milos: many people consider Sarakiniko to be the best beach in Milos because of its unique landscape, but I truly believe that Achivadolimni with its wide sandy area is generally the best beach on the island.

  • Best Beach for Families with kids in Milos: I believe that the best beaches for families and kids in Milos are Achivadolimni, Pollonia and Papikinou as they are all well organized with golden sand and lots of amenities and restaurants in walking distance

  • When can you actually swim at the beaches of Milos: you can swim in Milos whenever you feel comfortable, to be honest, but all beaches are at their best in June, July, August and September when the waters are very warm and the ambient temperatures are more than 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit). Milos is an island that never gets too busy so even in July and August you will have plenty of space to visit any beach on the island and find a space to enjoy the landscape with or even without sunbeds. However, Sarakiniko might get very busy an crowded in July and August.
  • Tickets: there are no tickets on any of the beaches in Milos but in order to use any sunbeds you would have to pay from 5 to 20 euros per pair of sunbeds and an umbrella. You can always bring your own umbrella and sunbeds if you want or just lay your towels on the beach. Nobody will say anything and there is usually plenty of space.

CONCLUSION

So, these are the Best Beaches in Milos. I believe that Milos is one of the best greek islands for beaches as there are literally tens of them and they are all so diverse. The thing is that some of them are very remote and quiet but that’s the beauty of it. If you really want to reach those remote beaches, you definitely have to get on a sailing tour in Milos as it’s one of the best things you can do on the island anyways. Overall, the island never feels busy and it’s definitely. on the cheaper side compared to Santorini or Mykonos but if you are looking for a quiet but still beautiful and picturesque then Milos is a no-brainer.
