In addition to Sarakiniko, Kleftiko is the second highlight of nature on the island of Milos, which really has a lot to offer. However, it is much more difficult to reach Kleftiko. This natural beauty can only be reached by boat. Kleftiko is a collection of rocks and caves, the clear water invites you to snorkel! Absolutely worth seeing.

3. Ecclesiastical Museum of Milos

The magnificent church of the Holy Trinity functions as an Ecclesiastical Museum. A small church with a museum that hides a great history of religion. There you will find concentrated ecclesiastical relics of the late Byzantine era.

4. Firopotamos Beach

A very idyllic little place with fishers’ houses, a small chapel, and ruin. Very nice for taking pictures or swimming. The stand is not large but has a beautiful, unusual backdrop embedded in the small fishing village. Here you can swim well out and have a wonderful view of the white houses of the place.

5. Ancient Roman Theatre – Milos

This ancient Roman theater was built in the 3rd century BC. Built by the inhabitants of the city of Klima. After being destroyed, the theater was rebuilt at a later date and held approximately 7,000 spectators. Some remains of this can still be seen today. There are even regular music events here. Incidentally, the Venus de Milo site was very close. A must for those interested in history!

6. Milos Mining Museum

All mineral stones on the island are exhibited and explained here. The Milos Mining Museum is a small modern museum by Greek standards, which gives an overview of the minerals found on the island and the history of mining. There is an audio guide with headphones in several languages. The museum is modern and well worth a visit.

You can combine your trip to Tsigrado Beach with a visit to Firiplaka Beach, as these 2 beaches are close to each other. The descent to the beach is actually a little adventurous and not entirely safe. But once you get down there you will be rewarded with a beautiful beach of crystal clear water!

There is a lot to discover here and lots of photo opportunities. Absolutely not to be missed during a holiday in Milos. It is an enchanted place that housed an old sulfur mine which was abandoned in 1956 but time seems to have stopped. Everything remained as it was when it was in operation. But the best thing is that it is in a terrific location.

9. Paliochori Beach

Very beautiful elongated bay with a couple of really expensive hotels. You’ll see lots of beach chairs with umbrellas for a fee lined up here. The beach consists mainly of pebbles, many completely white, others black, red, or a mixture of everything. A must-see when you’re in Milos.

10. Venetian Castle of Milos

Certainly one of the top sights in Plaka. After a short steep walk, you can see the ruins of this Venetian castle and have a spectacular view in all directions.
