The strange shapes of the rocks, their superb colors and the enchanting beaches with their white sand and carved rocks are all due to the volcanic nature of the island. Milos has rich mineral wealth. The extraction of obsidian contributed to the financial growth of the island in ancient times. Here you will find one of the oldest mines in the Mediterranean.
The intense volcanic past is also reflected in magnificent caves (Papafranga, Sykia) and geological formations such as the Kleftiko, also known as the “Meteora of the sea” and the multitude of
hot springs that are mentioned by Hippocrates. A small paradise for divers, with underwater caves, is hiding in the triangle of Milos-Kimolos-Polyaigou, an ideal spot for friends of the sea floor.
Explore the beautiful settlements on the island, the aristocratic Plaka (capital), the port of Adamanta, one of the largest in the Mediterranean, graphic Pollonia, lovely Hivadolimni and splendid Emporeio with the small Rivari lagoon and the old iron mines.
On Milos, you can visit archaeological sites of international repute, such as the early Christian catacombs, and the prehistoric settlement of Phylakopi, as well as its excellent museums, especially the Mining Museum with its exemplary exhibition of 11,000 years of mining history.
