Landmark
“What does the village Tripiti in Milos have in common with The Vatican and Paris? The answer is that they all three have catacombs. That’s right. Milos has one of the most well preserved catacombs that can be found worldwide and they are considered as the third greatest pre-Christian structure of this kind. What makes these catacombs different and unique from others is that they consist of a complex of caves cut into the volcanic rock of the island, which makes them a peculiar yet fascinating sight.”

Museum
“Milos has many landscapes that combine pure natural beauty and a sense that inspires awe. The Old Sulfur Mines is one of these places. Located in the bay of Paliorema, these abandoned quarries are a remnant of the era that Milos exported sulfur all over the world. And the mines’ ruins is a great historical sight but also renders an particularly gorgeous scenery for the beach that lies next to it. In other words, visiting the Sulfur Mines is an opportunity to combine a relaxing day at the beach with getting to know the history of the island.”

Natural Feature
“The beach of Firiplaka is a fairly large beach, cut in half by a large rock (plate) which has been detached from the mountain. The first part of the beach is the one where you will find the beach bar and sunbeds, probably the second song on your own or with a camper company that has reached the other side of the beach. The beach has shallow but clear waters combined with white sand. It is best to avoid days with southerly winds.”

“Avec Yallos qui est mieux situé sur la jetée du port de Polonia et que je préfère, les 2 meilleurs restaurants de poisson de l'ile. Le site en bord e plage et la vue, spécialement en soirée sont magnifiques. Tous les poissons sont péchés localement, il faut parfois réserver 2 à 3 jours à l'avance en Juillet-aout. l'addition est raisonnable, pas plus cher qu'ailleurs.”
