    THE ISLAND OF MILOS

    Phos Suites in Pollonia:

    Where the adventure begins

     

    Built around a windless bay, Pollonia is a picturesque fishing village, ideal to unwind and rebalance. Typical whitewashed Cycladean houses, sandy beaches with tamarisks that provide shadow under the Aegean sun, and excellent cuisine with fresh fish brought to you by local fishermen early in the morning are only some of the highlights that Pollonia has to offer. Named after the ancient Greek god Apollo, Pollonia is considered one of the most elegant villages on the island. It is connected with both the port of Adamantas and the airport of Milos, as well as most villages, beaches, and landmarks with a good-quality road network. At Pollonia you can find taverns, a playground for children, a minimarket, a bakery shop and gift shops, a bus station, taxis, and, of course, beach bars. Most importantly, you can find fun and relaxation. Starting from Pollonia you can visit any place in Milos, or even hop on a boat to visit the island of Kimolos for a short trip. Or you can simply stay in the village and lose yourself in the emerald, shallow waters of the beach. Whatever you choose, Phos Suites will make sure your vacation is unforgettable!

    Exquisite Cycladean sceneries with a twist

    Milos does not only have an impressive coastline, which the Greeks often compare to elegant lace as the land and the sea combine but, also, it is one of the volcanic islands of the Aegean, presenting mesmerizing sceneries and extreme geological interest. Because of its volcanic past, Milos is renowned for its peculiar rock formations and natural color variations that make excellent Instagram posts. The lunar scenery of Sarakiniko beach is proof of that; dive in the emerald waters and walk to the shipwreck for an amazing experience. Some consider Tsigkrado the best beach of Milos because of the soft, silver-white sand, the transparent waters, and the caves. You can combine a trip to the golden-white Thiorichia beach with a visit to the old abandoned mines nearby. If you go to Kleftiko, you definitely should try scuba diving or snorkeling. It is accessible by boat and totally worth it. Pirates of the Middle Ages had their hideouts in Milos and bollards for their ships can be found sculpted next to the caves. At Paliochori, the red rocks, the emerald waters and the pebbles create a breath-taking scenery and if you feel like going to a beach bar Firiplaka should be your destination where you can combine relaxation with some music. With up to 90 beaches to choose from, Milos is a constant adventure of beauty, harmony, and fascinating moments.

    Exploring history and culture of thousands of years

     

    Even though Milos first became world-famous for the sculpture of Venus de Milo which was found on the island on the 8th of April 1820, it has been inhabited since prehistoric times and has many points of historical and archaeological interest. Filakopi is a fascinating prehistoric settlement that you can visit on the way towards Pollonia. The Archaeological Museum of Milos is full of ancient Greek artifacts found on the island as well as an exact copy of the sculpture of Aphrodite that is kept in the Louvre. As far as museums go, there is a big variety for all tastes in Milos, such as the Nautical Museum and the Folklore Museum that explore recent years, traditions, and crafts.

    The Mining Museum offers a deeper understanding of how the ground we are stepping on was formed thousands of years ago. If you are into geology, take a boat trip to discover the old Sulphur mine with its impressive arcades, iron bridges, train tracks, carriages, and old stone homes. The Ancient Roman Theater of Milos, the Byzantine Castle, and the early-Christian Catacombs with murals dating from the 1st to the 5th century AD prove that Milos has always been an important place of spirituality, art, and culture. On the architectural side, at the colorful villages Klima, Emborios, and Mandrakia you can admire the typical Aegean “sirmata” that is quaint buildings cut into the cliffs, where the islanders would live, parking their boats at the sea level, right under their homes.

    Greek cuisine at its finest

     

    Needless to say, you should try the fresh fish that the Greeks cook in a million ways, along with some ouzo, tsipouro, or local wines. Ask us for recommendations and let us book for you the perfect Mediterranean night. While in Milos, “Flaounes” (cheese-filled pastry with seeds), “Pitarakia” (delicious packets of golden pastry wrapped around a melty cheese filling), “Skordolazana” (greek style lasagne with garlic sauce and tomato) are some of the local dishes you must taste. The famous local cheeses “Xinomizithra” and “Mileiko” are also a must. If you have sweet tooth, “Koufeto” which is made with white pumpkin, honey, and almonds is the thing for you. At Paliochori, you can even eat volcanic food! A local restaurant wraps up the dishes and lets them cook under the hot sand. At Plaka, which is the capital of the island, the view of the sunset is astonishing and so is the food. Let us guide you on a gastronomic trip that will delight your palate and your soul.
