If it’s classic Greek beauty you’re craving without the pretence, Milos holidays to this horseshoe-shaped island deliver in spades. On the western edge of the Cyclades, it’s an exotic paradise with more than 70 incredible beaches – think clear, indigo waters and pristine shores – you’ll be hard pushed to pick a favourite, but you’ll have fun trying. A volcanic island, it’s known for the lunar-like rock formations that jut out of its azure waters forming sheltered coves, bays and caves; grab a snorkel and spend your days discovering fish and unearthing hidden beaches. Hike inshore and you’ll wonder
if you’re on the same island when you swap lunar rock for vibrant blooms and lush greenery. Thanks to its volcanic origin, Milos also has many hot springs – if you know where to look for them you can dive in for free at various spots around the island, or for a small fee, the Lakkos baths in the harbour town of Adamantas are set deep into a cave where you can experience the healing magic of the thermal waters. In recent years the island has gained momentum as a tourist spot, bringing with it gourmet dining and luxury accommodation, but its authentic, laid-back demeanour still give it a hidden gem vibe, so you’ll come back from your Milos holiday feeling blissed-out, suntanned and smitten with Greece.
