Milos Island Travel Guide: 194 reviews and 605 photos
Milos is the most southerly island in the Western Cyclades. It is notable for its volcanic soil and for the rich deposits of minerals that lie beneath.
It has a distinctive horseshoe shape.
Milos is best known all over the world for the famous statue of Aphrodite (Aphrodite from Milos) which was found here.
The civilization of Milos is considered to be as ancient as that of Crete, and spans a period of at least 5,000 years.
Its fame spread throughout the civilized world thanks to the masterpiece of the Venus de Mile, a statue found buried on the island in the 19th century and now in the Louvres Museum in Paris.
Milos or Plaka, capital of the island today stands on a hillside overlooking the sea at the foot of the castle. It is a most attractive town, with architecture in the characteristic Cycladic style.
Milos has excellent beaches at Hivadolimni, Polonia, Adamas, Emborio, Provatas, Paleohori Agia Kiriaki, Lagada, Papikinou, Aliki, Fatourena, Ribari and Agio Dimitrio.
