Milos: 2024's Hottest Greek Island Destination



Already daydreaming of summer escapes? Set your sights on idyllic, off-the-radar Milos – 2024’s hottest Greek island destination 

     

Olympic Holidays has been arranging trips to the Greek Islands (not forgetting Cyprus, Canaries, Balearics, Malta, Goa and The Gambia) for over half a century, with unrivalled insider knowledge. So it’s no surprise they have decided to add this rising star to their collection. Up until a few years ago, the Cycladic speck of Milos was a well-kept secret among Greek holidaymakers, with in-the-know Athenians quietly popping over for a dip in some of the Aegean’s most stunningly azure coves. Its unique volcanic beauty however, means that the island is now also drawing discerning international visitors to its unspoiled shores.

 

Five reasons to make Milos top of your must-visit list...

 

Its dramatic lunar-like landscapes are utterly unique…


The island’s volcanic nature makes for awe-inspiring scenery. Think surreal rock formations in a rainbow of colours, a dazzling coastline carved with deep caves and vertiginous cliffs plunging to cyan coves. Awe-inspiring and otherworldly, Milos is unlike any other Greek island.

 

It has arguably the best beaches in Greece (shhh)…


Lapped by eye-wateringly blue seas, Milos boasts over 65 swoon-worthy beaches, over half of which can be reached only by boat (remaining blissfully crowd-free as a result). From the pretty main port of Adamas, tour boats can take you along the coast to explore some of the island’s loveliest bays. Don’t miss otherworldly Sarakiniko with its undulating snow-white sandstone cliffs and luminous waters, or picturesque Paleochori, gently heated by underground hot springs.  

 


It’s easy to reach, but far less visited than other Greek islands…


Just 40 minutes by plane from Athens, or four hours by ferry, Milos is a doddle to reach. While increasing numbers of savvy visitors are drawn here by the island’s natural beauty and relaxed charm, it still has a sleepy, authentic feel. Don’t arrive expecting thumping nightlife – instead, enjoy fresh seafood at waterfront tavernas in Adamas and Pollonia, soak up the views from the whitewashed hilltop village of Plaka and marvel at photogenic Klima’s unique ‘syrmata’, brightly-painted fishermen’s dwellings carved into the rocks.  

 

It’s the birthplace of one of the world’s most famous artworks…



Now displayed in all her splendour at the Louvre in Paris, the two-metre tall marble statue of the Venus di Milo was unearthed on Milos in 1820 by a local farmer. You can see a plaster cast in Plaka’s handsome Archaeology Museum, along with other fascinating finds.

 

You can visit Milos as part of an island-hopping adventure…


Why settle for just one gorgeous Greek Island when you could play join-the-dots with two? Southeast of Milos, nearby Santorini is a glamourous contrast to laidback Milos, with its sugar cube houses cascading down steep hillsides, iconic blue-domed churches and slender lanes lined with boutiques, bars and restaurants. Visit both as part of an 11-night island-hopping trip offered by Olympic Holidays, from £1419 per person based on 2 people travelling.  The package includes a one-night stay at the 4* Aria-Lito Mansion, Santorini, a five-night stay at the 3* Glaronisia Hotel, Milos and a four-night stay at the 3* Castro Hotel and Suites, Santorini. The package includes return flights to London Gatwick airport, baggage and all transfers.  Departures are available on 14th May 2024. www.olympicholidays.com
