Luxury holidays in Milos
Most famous for the discovery of a certain marble statue, Milos has even more by way of mineral material – geologists can have a (literal) field day here touring the lunar landscape of Sarakiniko, searching for shiny obsidian deposits, visiting sulphur and bentonite mines, cruising to the caves of Kleftiko and Papafragas, and observing the volcanic island’s red, pink and orange shores and rainbow metamorphic rocks.
When to go
As with most of the Greek Islands, the summer season is from April to October. For fewer tourists, avoid July and August – but the wind can be considerably cooler by the second half of September.
