How to get from athens to milos
Its 125 kilometers of coastline run between beaches, mines, fishing ports and beautiful whitewashed villages. Plaka is the capital of all of them. Its privileged location allows you to enjoy the best sunsets you will see in Greece and its solitary cobbled streets will allow you to “listen to the silence”.
It is possible to check timetables, days of departure of the boats, prices and shipping companies that operate the route Piraeus-Milos-Piraeus. It is a good source of information that also allows you to buy tickets if you wish.
We bought the tickets directly on the website of Grecotour, a travel agency located in Madrid that sent us by express mail the physical tickets the day after the purchase. The whole process was fast, simple and convenient.
Besides, the town has many taverns where it is possible to taste the typical dishes of Greek gastronomy. There is a great variety of them. So you can take the opportunity to take a break and rest.
Next to the catacombs are the remains of the ancient Roman city of Klima. Little remains of this city since the passage of time has destroyed much of it. However, the theater has survived and can be visited.
In this post we are going to provide you with a complete guide to Milos, Greece. All the arrangements and what to see and do on the island. Milos is one of the Cycladic Islands of Greece, of volcanic origin with spectacular landscapes, beaches, fishing villages, white houses with colorful doors and windows, charming people and good food. An island that we have fallen in love with and that we totally recommend if you are planning to travel to Greece.
We stayed in Milos for 4 nights with 3 full days to explore the island. We had time to see everything we wanted to see, although if we had had an extra day we would not have minded because it has enough things to see.
BY PLANE To get to Milos by plane there are flights from Athens with a duration of about 30 minutes. You also have connections with some other islands like Crete, Santorini or Rhodes. And in summer there are flights from European cities. To check flights we always look at Skyskanner.
The best areas to stay in Milos are Adamas, which is where the port is located and where the ferries arrive. Plaka is the capital and we also liked it very much and Pollonia because there are also places to eat, beach and you can book excursions. The truth is that if you book a car, any place on the island is fine.
Heraklion is a major passenger and cargo ferry port. Travelers can take ferries and boats from Heraklion to destinations such as Santorini, the island of Ios, Paros, Mykonos, and Rhodes. There are also several daily ferries to Piraeus, the port of Athens, in mainland Greece.
The island is connected to the port of Piraeus in Athens, all the Cyclades islands, the Dodecanese islands and Crete with ferries and high-speed catamarans. During the high season in the summer there are daily regular routes to and from the island. There are two ports in Milos, the main port in Adamas and another port in Apollonia that connects the island of Milos with the islands of Kimolos and Glaronissia.
When we organized our itinerary in Greece we had many doubts about which islands to visit. Milos was not among our first choices, but the pictures and videos we saw of it made us fall in love with it. So we went to Milos by a crush, by an infatuation that came through our eyes. And that always has its risks… Fortunately, the pictures did not lie but fell short even. Our 3 days there became very short and it became our favorite Greek island.
Its 120 km of coastline have more than 70 beaches that are reputed to be among the most beautiful in Greece (with permission of those of Crete) and even in the world. And its villages have managed to preserve their traditional character, both in terms of urban planning and atmosphere, without being subjected to mass tourism. Touring Milos is therefore to walk along its beaches and villages, unhurried, admiring the views, swimming in an incredible blue sea and enjoying a simple gastronomy based on fish and seafood. If this is your style of travel, congratulations, you will have found a gem.
