Meet the lunar landscape of Sarakiniko Beach, which isn’t really a beach with sand but with white, volcanic stones in stark contrast with the blue of the Med. It’s one of the surprising spots and views on Milos Island. If you prefer sand, Milos has some great sandy beaches too, especially when the wind is blowing from the north, you can go to the south beaches and jump in crystal clear water. We like Gerakas because it’s more rough and empty, not the organized beach you would expect in summer. A couple of other favorite places on Milos is the sea in front of Nefeli Studios in Pollonia. Roula Diakaki runs this cute and affordable accommodation with her husband and renovated most of the rooms into sparkling white and bright rooms with self catering facilities. The best thing about this small hotel is that you are right in front of the ocean, so you can tip toe from your room via the rocks into the sea. Pollonia has lots of small eateries to have breakfast and 2 supermarkets to buy your own stuff. If you feel like having a great fish lunch or dinner, go to Antonios and his Armenaki Taverna. Antonios buys his fish every day fresh from the small fishing boats so you can be sure of excellent and fresh stuff.
