One of the prettiest islands I've been to!! Milos is famous for it's hundreds of beautiful beaches and most of them are accessible only by boat. It belongs to the Cycladic Islands and is very similar to Serifos and Sifnos in architecture, white washed houses and narrow stone streets. The Hora is built on a hill and there is also a Kastro (castle) just like with the other islands to protect it from pirates! I climbed up to the castle and even though the temps were extremely hot...the views from up there were heavenly!!  You could see the whole island!

The most gorgeous sunsets! words cannot describe this picture..

These are from the way up th the Kastro. it's not an easy climb and it was soooo hot that day.

churches everywhere!

This is in Plaka. beautiful narrow streets and well kept gardens, white washed houses...

Sparkling sea..

Sarakiniko. Have you ever seen a beach like this?..Milos is a volcanic island and this beach here looks like pumice stone. something out of a sci fi movie, right?

There were also cave on the side of the hills...

Hope you are well my friend and enjoyed this little break :)

Before I go I must show you one more pic. The colored doors you see in the background used to be storage garages for the fishing boats a long time ago. They are now renovated rentals, where you open your front door and dive into the gorgeaous sea!

My next post will be on Kimolos, where I went on a day trip. It's only a twenty minute ferry ride(2 euro fare!) I only spent the day there but it was so out of this world beautiful, It will be my vacation destination next summer!
