Sights

The boat (from Pollonia in Milos’ north) docks at Psathi, from where it’s 1.5km to the pretty capital, Hora. Wander the maze of streets to reach Hora’s central cafes and a semi-crumbling medieval kastro. The kastro holds the Church of the Nativity (from the late 16th century) and the petite Folk & Maritime Museum of Kimolos.

Caïques from Psathi buzz out to beaches, the best of which is magnificent, white-sand Prassa (also reachable by car/scooter/ATV along the partially sealed road). You can walk there from Hora in about two hours.
