“My favorite place in Milos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

I spent hours walking around and sitting in Sarakiniko. It was really lucky I traveled before the season truly started as I was completely alone there and had the place to myself.
It's like something out of a movie, I've never seen any place like it. The white rocks washed in the sunlight and the light blue colors of the sea were a perfect match.
After walking and discovering all the hidden wonders of the beach, I sat there for a long time writing. It was true serenity.

Don't miss this place in your visit to Milos, and best to make it there off-season when you can enjoy the silence and the sounds of the sea kissing the shore.

“Unlike anywhere else”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

The unusual wind sculpted pumice formations of Sarakiniko are apparently the most photographed area in the Aegean. Its surprisingly firm underfoot because it looks like a giant white sand dune but its actually rock which lets you clamber over the whole place fairly easily.

The sandy part of the beach is not that big or particularly pleasant but it gives access to the man made tunnels. Theres also bridges created by sea erosion and columns created by wind erosion.

Whether you vsiit for a quick wander around the formations or stop for a longer exploration may depend on the weather. The white stone reflects the sun and even in May it was warm. In the height of summer I'd imagine its unbearable. Whatever you decide don't forget your camera.

White stone, clear waters, beautiful view. The beach was small, but the waters were calm and peaceful. Favorite beach in Milos.
