Very strange place...

Very strange place... not so easy to swim there... but the place is really worth a visit. You can take pictures and also short walks... The patience of nature...

This is always my first stop when I bring people to visit Milos; it really showcases what Milos has to offer (more so than many other Greek islands): wild, rustic, beautiful beaches that are often completely empty.

This is a truly spectacular beach. A short but slightly tricky path carved into the rock takes you down to a small cove. Behind you is a cave, in front of you steep cliffs create a natural pool with an archway opening to the sea beyond. It's great for a swim, with the sea getting rougher beyond the archway. And...

Really unusual beach on the north coast of Milos. We stopped off for a swim. You have to go past some warning signs and camber down some rocky steps. It's tricky so wouldn't suit those of limited mobility. Well worth the effort to get down there!

A very unique beach you have to work hard to get to. Swim through the hole on the left for a surprise... Beautiful unique beach

Super impressive place for nice photos during sunset ! Better visit the place late afternoon when everybody is away because the place is very small and packs with people.

It is a really special and beautiful place to go. The best is very early in the morning or at the sunset time

Only accessible if you are confident scrambling down a narrow cliff path which left it lovely and unpopulated for us to enjoy. A magical place.

It is nice to see it and take some pictures but it is not a beach where you can sit and enjoy a full day at the beach. Difficult and dangerous path.

Amazing beach. Very different than all those typical long ones with tavernas around. You can arrive either with a rental o by bus as it stops just in front. You need to do a bit of a hike down (and then up to go back) but as long as you stay low close to the ground for balance and better... More
