To many, this is the most exotic island in the Aegean because of its extraordinary colours and landscape. Certainly, it is one of the most impressive islands in the Cyclades. Volcanic rocks paint the beaches red, pink and orange. Sarakiniko and Kleftiko, with their white rock formations, emerald green waters and caves eroded by the sea, are steeped in stories of pirates. The catacombs, the beaches, the multicoloured settlements of Klima, Emborios and Mandrakia, with their quaint buildings cut into the cliffs, and Plaka’s sunsets... And let’s not forget that this is where the Venus de Milo (the exquisite life-sized marble statue believed to be the goddess Aphrodite, now housed in the Louvre) was discovered. All of these cry out in unison: Milos is unique.
