Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A hidden treasure in Milos. A unique beach with wonderful beauty that enchants you together with its wonderful green waters. You reach the road up to a point where there is a parking space, then you continue walking for about 20 to 25 minutes to reach the beach.However, the beach compensates you and the wonderful rocks that have been sculpted by the air and the salt and have created incredible and impressive exhibits.I suggest you visit it and believe me you will love it.

The south side of Milos is so interesting in terms of rock formations and scenery. Most boats around the island stop here on their way to Kleftiko Bay next door. It's pretty. You can also drive and hike down but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're making a day of it.

On of the southern beaches of Milos island. You can go till one point by car but you need to drive around 15 mins on a dirty road but safe. Then you need 15 more mins walking down the clif to reach the beach and enjoying the surrounding nature. The view to the sea is spectacular as well as the rocky enviroment of this area.

Gerontas is just in the remote part of the island and a fair walk down but the scenery is spectacular. Unfortunately boats are now stopping here and polluting the bay with diesel fuel and who knows what but it stung the eyes, irritated the skin and was unsightly. A shame when tourist based business destroys the beauty.... Its one particular boat I think and it needs to be stopped.

One of the most beautiful beach of milos. A bit difficult until you got there but it worth it. Pure nature, not lot of people, clean water and amazing rocks and caves.

The western part of Milos, called Chalakas, is a wild, almost completely uninhabited area with only dirt roads. When on Milos I like to spend a day with a rented 4x4 to go there beach hopping, when not in the mood to climb its higest peak, the Profit Ilias (751m asl).

The first stop on the south coast of Chalakas is the small beach of Gerontas (old man), with its unique arch consisting of a white rock below and a dark rock on top. Having been there several times, the always changing state of the beach made for a surprise. There are years, when there is a nice sandy beach and other years, when the sand is completely gone, which depends on the work by wind and waves usually in winter time.

To get there from the dirt road one still has to walk for about 10 to 15 minutes. Being so remote this beach is naturally not organized, which applies to all beaches of Chalakas. Further down the road starts a trail to Kleftiko, very beautiful, but it takes at least an hour down and an hour up, so with the swimming there one has to count alone for that with about a half a day.

More accessible beaches by 4x4 are on the west side of Chalakas, like Agios Jannis (below the monastery of that name), then Ammoudaraki and Triades (with in between them one of the very few wild cypress groves in Greece). Further north are Vourlidia and Angathia, while on the eastern side near the tavern at Embourio is the lagoon like beach of Fatourena.

Better accessed by boat in a combining trip to Kleftiko (preferably from Kipos). It is an amazing experience diving from the boat to this clear blue water in front of the rocks and caves. There is a very small beach as well.

Had a great time here, it was the last stop of our boat trip. Crystal water, better than a swimming pool

Ok incredible place. We went with the Delfinia tour from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for only 30 euros. We stopped half an hour in Gerontas and 75 minutes in Kleftiko. It is infinitely worth it to go snorkeling in the caves to see the bottom. Incredible landscapes, clear blue waters. The best we did in Milos.

This beach is accessible by boat or car + trail. We did it by boat, but we saw that the trail was very challenging. Very beautiful beach, empty, without any structure, with very beautiful rock formations. Crystal clear water.
