Thanks to the rise of low cost flights and all-inclusive packages, Kos is booming as a tourist destination. Although the first impression may lead you to think that the island is not very authentic and that the capital is a “standardized city”, this feeling is compensated by the beauty of the beaches of Kos. Kardamena, Kefalos, the natural hot springs, the archaeological remains and the attractive prices for sleeping, eating, moving around and having fun are outstanding. In addition, Turkey is only an hour away by ferry and visiting Bodrum is a very pleasant trip.
Fortunately, tour operators only know part of the potential of the volcanic island of Milos, a real gem that can be reached by plane from Athens. With its 72 beaches (some hidden ones accessible only by boat), the whole western part considered a nature reserve, the cliffs, the caves and the enigmatic lunar landscapes (don’t miss the white Sarakiniko rocks), Milos comes to travelers as one of the best secrets of the Aegean. And the best thing is that the prices of hotel rooms are quite low! To see the best beaches, go to the south coast, for example, to Firiplaka, with its delicate shades of color and white rocks.

The best known are those of Neorio and Askeli, Love Bay and Monastiri. If in addition to enjoying the sea you want to discover the island, you should visit the capital, where you will find numerous neoclassical buildings, or Korizis, in whose archaeological museum you can admire the remains of the sanctuary of Poseidon.
The colors illuminate Milos, a beautiful island with a reputation for having the best beaches in the Aegean. There are beaches for all tastes: long beaches like Provatas, rocky beaches like Kleftiko or Firiplaka, and others like Sarakiniko, which surprises with its lunar landscape. If you travel to Milos you can not miss the opportunity to visit Klima, a tiny fishing village nestled in the rock with colorful houses, or the capital, Plaka, where you will find the replica of the Venus found on the island.
