Where to take the best pictures in Milos for your Instagram account

1. Sarakiniko Beach

Sarakiniko Beach offers the closest thing on earth to what it might look like to land on the Moon. Set on the northeast coast of Milos, this is easily the island’s hottest attraction and most Instagrammed site. It’s not the beach itself, but the surrounding landscape that gains the most attention on our feeds.

The narrow sandy strip of beach is surrounded by moonscapes of gigantic cascading white rocks and iridescent blue waters. The volcanic rocks are free from vegetation and shaped by millennia of erosion through wind and water, creating a series of caves and rock bridges to explore. Being the island’s most popular attraction, it can become incredibly busy in the peak season, so get there early or be prepared to search for a quiet place to snap those perfect pictures.

2. Kleftiko caves

The Kleftiko caves are found where giant white cliffs plunge into the sea and the water is some of the bluest you’ve ever seen. This labyrinth of caves is located southwest of the island. With no sandy beaches to dock upon, this region needs to be seen from the water. Many tour operators offer a smaller boat to get up close and personal with the network of caves.

The brilliant blue hues are cast over the white rocks within the caves when the light is right, making it feel as though it’s almost sparkling. The waters surrounding the caves are also ideal for snorkeling, giving you the chance to score those underwater shots that are so sought after on a Grecian getaway. Once a base for pirates, Kleftiko caves are now your treasure to explore.

3. Klima

Klima is the place to go if color and culture are 2 big things you need for the perfect ‘grammable shot for your feed. Considered the most beautiful fishing village on Milos, this is a location not to be missed while exploring the best sights the island has to offer. Located near the small town of Tripiti, Klima sits at the bottom of the cliffs and hugs the sea.

A row of syrmata – traditional fisherman houses – along the waterfront is what makes Klima such a spectacular sight. Whitewashed buildings are decorated with boldly painted doorways, windows and balconies to make this a haven for photographers. The fishermen's houses are no longer in use as boathouses and are instead now available to rent for holidaymakers looking to stay in one of the most picturesque places on the island.

4. Tsigrado Beach

Tsigrado Beach is certainly not easy to get to, but sometimes the best things in life aren’t easy. Although difficult to reach, this idyllic spot in the south of Milos rewards those who make the journey with fantastic views. Passing through a rocky passage that's nestled between volcanic cliffs, you’ll be treated to a small sandy cove and incredibly clear aquamarine water.

After weaving your way towards the beach, you’ll have to climb down a narrow wooden ladder to reach the bay below – it's not for the faint-hearted. Be sure to pack a snorkel and mask as Tsigrado is one of Milos’ best snorkeling spots.

5. Ancient Theatre of Milos

The Ancient Roman Theatre of Milos combines history and nature for a picture-perfect scene. Set upon the hillside overlooking the azure sea below, these ancient ruins are an ode to the way civilizations on the island lived thousands of years ago. Located near the settlement of Tripiti and above the fishing village of Klima, the theatre is certainly worth a visit.

Dating back to the Hellenistic period, the Romans destroyed the original theatre before it was remodeled in marble. To this day, locals still use the theatre for festivals and cultural events at one of the most spectacular viewpoints on Milos.
