Milos Island Travel Guide: 194 reviews and 605 photos

I took 3 days to the island of Venus, time enough to make me review my idea of the Cyclades island, time so limited to make me feel its charm at the edge.
Had been almost 10 years since I last had visited one of the Cycladian islands. My idea of them, was : “nice, picturesque, great blue and white contradictions, but that’s all”.
Having been grown up in a big, green Ionian island famous for its impressive beaches and emerald waters, I had always been stict and firm concerning those topics about the rest of the islands.
Untill Milos changed it all. 3 days, was not much for a full overview of the island, however, from the little I saw, unlike the rest of the Cycladian islands, this one, lucks the picturesque of the rest. Nice villages, in white, whose structure, lucks the charm of those in Santorini or Sifnos. The shock came when visited its beaches. Me, that thought that had almost seen it all concerning the Greek beaches, felt like “falling from the sky” when witnessed that fine sand, that emerald, clean, crystal waters…Looking back, I can now say that I almost spent the ¾ of my time there, under the water…a really great time 

The photo above, is taken from the balcony of my room, I call it the “flying boat” as it gives me a 3D illusion of this boat being on the air….and probably this is my idea of the island…an illusion I have lived, an illusion I eager to live again.

    Tsigrado looks like a perfect beach to me, even without any waves. That water is the most magnificent colour & I would love to swim there one day. Thanks Irene for sharing another special place with us VTers.
