    Milos - Pachena, Sarakiniko and Pollonia

    by andreasfmpro Updated Apr 19, 2011
    Milos - Pachena
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Pachena is a fast-growing settlement with 2-3 accommodations. There is even a mini-market operating in the high-season.

    Sarakiniko is more isolated, with just 3 lodging establishments in the wider area.

    Pollonia is also a fast-growing fishing village and tourist resort, with plenty of accommodation options, several good tavernas and restaurants, a couple of cafes, a bakery and a mini-market.

    Buses run frequently between Adamas, Plaka and Pollonia, stopping at both Pachena and Sarakiniko, even though the Sarakiniko stop is about 200 m. -500 m. or more away from the beach or a lodging establishment.

    Milos is not a high-accident island at all. Even though accidents do happen, especially involving motorcycles, to the best of my knowledge most incidents by far have involved locals. I do not know of any foreign tourists who have been involved in a serious accident in Milos the last 10 years.

    For the record, I bicycle my way anywhere I go in Milos and always feel safe. I've never had a run-in with another vehicle or a close-call in Milos. Now, Athens is a different story. :)

    Fondest memory: If you are a member of Facebook, you may want to visit my 40+ groups on Milos:

    Crystal Clear Waters, Mermaids and Beaches

    Mermaid in Sarakiniko, Milos
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Venus de Milo, the famous Greek Goddess of Love, graced the shores of Milos since the dawn of time. Today, thousands of modern day Venuses choose this island as their romantic getaway.

    Milos is a destination for the young at heart. Couples walking hand in hand along a remote beach against the sunset or dancing to the rhythm of a modern tune at one of the island's several night clubs are trademark sights of Milos.

    Milos lovers

    Fondest memory: Without a doubt, it is the exhilarating feeling of my naked body gliding almost effortlessly through the crystal clear waters of Milos.

    Not long ago, I set out to complete the round of Milos swimming, with nothing but a mask and snorkel. Swimming a different leg every day, 25 legs and about 100 hours later, I had done it.

    While I would not recommend this to everyone, I can honestly say it was an unforgettable experience that gave new meaning to my life.

    Nature's play

    Kleftico
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: Nature really enjoyed playing with Milos' shapes and colours... so if you are going to stay a couple of days in this wonderful little pearl in the Aegean sea, do whatever you want but do not miss for any reason theboat trip around the island!!! Don't forget the antiistaminic pills if you easily get sick (like me...) but... do that! And admire the rocks, the sea, water, snorkeling, Sikia, Kleftico, eating in the middle of a blue fantastic sea....

    Fondest memory: The silence broken only from the voices of the cicadas, the stars in the black sky, the quietness and solitude in the marvelos beaches....

    LUMINOUS COUNTRYSIDE

    Olives and the light

    Favorite thing: From the top of the mount where Plaka is nailed the view of the surroundings is breathtaking, the sunlight looks strange, different, giving a magic touch to everythings, like if the spell of the ancient spirit of the island were telling to you..."stay here, you don't need anymore"...
    So, that's what I felt. Say no more.

    Fondest memory: The Olive trees on the slope near to Kastro, beside Plaka. The light of the evening invading the olives plantation and the sky lost inside this light.

    men in Fyropotamos

    Fondest memory: The day, the place changes face, people come from around the island to enjoy the beach, and some fishermen too, who come to work on their property. This photo, is taken early in the morning, when I went out to swim, before even having coffee. It was only me, and those 2 men there…

    Fyropotamos

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fyropotamos

    Fondest memory: This is where my base was and where I spent a good amount of my time. A small bay, north of the island, “house” for the small boats of fishermen. Unlike what it seems, is not a village, those on the ground, are small “houses” where fishermen store their fishing boats, to protect from the weather conditions and thieves. We stayed at the upper level, which is used as store place, and to cover the first needs of the fishermen. There is no electricity, and the night, the place is absolutely quite with no clue of human being around. Unless you have some crazy friends, who can provide you the keys, and spend long, cool nights, together with a candle, the moon, vodka, and good friends…and night swimming too…;-)

    Tsigrado beach

    Fondest memory: Situated south east of the island, this beach has absolutely stolen my heart. Maybe never felt better than when swimming in those emerald waters…

    Glaronisia

    Fondest memory: A banch of big, solid pieces of weird land, scattered in the north sea of the island. Home for thousands of seagulls. You can see them, if you make the boat trip around the island.

    Sarakiniko

    Fondest memory: Probably the most famous spot of the island, due to its geological formation, which refers straight to the moon or some other planet, far from the blue planet…
