So many beautiful beaches, charming fishing villages, and nice places for day-long boat trips to charming caves. In my opinion, out of all the islands visited, this place had the best seafood.

Solo travel experience

Milos was absolutely amazing. I took a boat trip to Kleftiko and Sykia Cave, and the views were breathtaking. Also, Sarakiniko beach was incredible and splendid. I recommend Firopotamos beach and the sunset at the church just below the Venetian Castle in Plaka. I stayed at Hotel Elea just behind the main port in Adamas and rented a quad for transportation.

I went at the very end of August and didn't find it too crowded. I highly recommend a boat trip to Kleftikos, it was an absolute highlight of the trip. Additionally, it's a great island for renting a car.
