Milos is blessed with over 70 beaches, and whilst some of them can only be reached from the sea, there are plenty that you can get to yourselves! Whether you decide to use the island bus service to get around or rent a car, make sure to visit Sarakiniko, Paleochori, and Agia Kyriaki beaches at the very least!

1. Agia Kyriaki Beach

Agia Kyriaki is the most family-friendly, especially with younger children. It is not the most famous beach on Milos island, but it is relatively quiet with shallow waters, and some shade. You can find a tavern nearby for food and drinks, or hire sunbeds and umbrellas at the beach.

2. Kleftiko Beach

Kleftiko beach is famous for its beautiful rock formations, unique to the island. Kleftiko is not really a beach, but a bay. You can visit it by boat tour and swim in the crystal clear waters.

3. Provatas Beach

Provatas Beach is an organised, Blue Flag beach with plenty of shade and sunbeds. The beach can get busy in the summer, but if your hotel is nearby, you will find it a very convenient place.

5. Thiorichia Beach

This sandy beach is very special because of its old sulfur mine and the strange landscape. We recommend it for families with older children or teens because it is not organized, and you need to bring your own shade and water. You can visit Thiorichia Beach by boat or by 4-wheel drive.
