Milos, like Santorini is an island that is rich in the things that travellers come to Greece looking for: beautiful beaches, history, white-washed Cycladic villages, excellent food and good-hearted people.
The fifth largest island of the Cyclades, Milos has been inhabited for over 8000 years. It is known for the statue Venus de Milo (Aphrodite) and its rich natural resources. The island is unique for its astonishing lunar landscape which creates unbelievable and imposing rocky formations coloured in deep red, brown or glimmering white. This volcanic island is reasonably hilly, with relatively low mountains and without much tree vegetation. The flora and fauna of Milos is quite rich with many rare species.
The ancient town of Milos is located closer to the entrance of the harbor, built on the hillside between the villages of Tripiti and Klima. Adamantas is the central port, above which the island's capital, Plaka, is located, circled in turn by the villages of Triovasalos, Pera Triovasalos and Trypiti.
