Places in Milos
Plaka & Trypiti
Supercharming Plaka (population 877), 5km uphill from Adamas, embodies the Cycladic ideal with its white houses and labyrinthine lanes perching along the edge of an escarpment. Plaka was built on the site of Ancient Milos, which was destroyed by the Athenians and rebuilt by the Romans.
Milos and its offshore islets are rimmed by splendid beaches in different coloured sands and stone. Rent wheels or hire a boat to compare! Plathiena is a fine sandy beach north of Plaka, and on the way you can visit fishing villages Areti and Fourkovouni. Sarakiniko is a must, with its snow-white rock formations and natural terraces.
