Milos Beach: a hidden paradise!
Milos in greek, means Windmill. The name was given to the beach due to a windmill there is on top of the mountain before you reach this wonderful endless paradise beach.
Enjoy the tranquillity and unspoiled nature of the wonderful beach of Milos, even in peak season.
There are two ways to go to this beach. Take a motor boat that you will find at the beach of the village or walk the wondeful scenic pathway, up the mountain. This is a steep pathway but as long as you reach the windmill on top, the breathtaking view will reward you. Keep in mind that it is a beach also for nudists. Do not forget to take something to eat or drink, as it is not an organised beach.
