Welcome to Milos

The island has a fascinating history of mineral extraction dating from the Neolithic period when obsidian was exported to the Minoan world of Crete. Today Milos is the biggest bentonite and perlite centre in the EU.

A substantial western chunk of Milos (and part of the east coast) is off-limits to rental vehicles due bad roads and a proliferation of the Milos viper, but the beaches are reachable by boat tour.
