Introduction

2022 holidays now on sale

The volcanic origins of the island of Milos have endowed it with a very special geology. Rugged and hilly, it has a richly variegated coastline, ranging from curving sandy beaches to bleached smooth moonscape, from hidden lagoons to colourful rock formations erupted from the sea-bed. Precious obsidian has been mined here for 11,000 years, and the island is full of history.

Plaka, the old capital perched on its hilltop, is particularly atmospheric in the evenings, and we'd recommend climbing up to the 13th century Venetian castle to view the
sumptuous sunset before choosing one of the many tavernas, tables spilling out onto the narrow lanes, to dine.

Plaka, the old capital perched on its hilltop, is particularly atmospheric in the evenings, and we'd recommend climbing up to the 13th century Venetian castle to view the sumptuous sunset before choosing one of the many tavernas, tables spilling out onto the narrow lanes, to dine.

There is a lovely, if steep, walk down from Plaka - via ancient Christian catacombs - to the photogenic fishing hamlet of Plaka below (some remains of the old Roman port here can be seen beneath the waves). In Tripiti, the view from the Greco/Roman amphitheatre is breathtaking.

There are over 70 beaches on the island, and our featured village of Apollonia has its own sweep of sand shaded by tamarisk trees, with more beaches to either side. A charming fishing village, Apollonia is renowned for the excellence of its restaurants (four of the island's best are to be found here). The offshore islets of Kimolos and Polyegos are easily reached by boat and up to 9 buses run daily to the main port of Adamas and Plaka.

Several ancient paths traverse the island, uncovering ever more secluded beaches. Particularly noteworthy is the unique lunarlike region of Sarakiniko, with its white volcanic beaches and pale smooth rocks, crystal waters, deep-set caves and monumental outcrops and pillars.

Something of a geological curiosity, the island provides a fascinating backcloth to any “around the island” boat trip, which is a must for every visitor.

Getting to Milos

Getting to Milos

Flights to Athens or Santorini. The optimum routing is via Athens with a connecting domestic flight Athens to Milos (40 mins) where you will be met and transferred to your accommodation. There are also ferries from Piraeus (Athens) (c 3 hrs.) and from Santorini (c 2 hrs). Should UK flights not connect with the onward domestic flight or ferry an overnight will be required on arrival and/or departure - we hope to be able to give this information at the time of booking.

Claire joined us in 2005 after having spent 6 years in Lesbos running her own business teaching English, where she married a Greek. The economic crisis in Greece forced them to return to the UK. Alongside day to day reservations, Claire is also mother goose to our 30 or so overseas representatives in Greece and works very closely with Graeme, our overseas manager in Greece, to arrange for their interviewing and training. Understandably she loves Alonissos.
