Agia Kyriaki
Just 9 km from the port of Adamas, next to the picturesque village of Zefyria we find one of the most beautiful and popular beaches of Milos, Agia Kyriaki, which was named in honor of the church of the same name.
Its most famous features are the endless golden sand and the crystal-clear turquoise waters. As we approach the shore the sand takes on a much finer shape and the pebbles on the beach look snowy.
The beach is also of great archaeological interest. Under its large sandy area, we find buried ancient ruins and pottery.
In the area there are many small traditional cafes and taverns to enjoy and taste your bath.
It is the ideal beach for families with young children, mature couples and people with mobility difficulties, as its waters do not deepen sharply, it has easy access, soft sand and rich shading thanks to the large number of salt pans.
At the same time, the fresh breeze and the rhythmic small waves that are created, attract many lovers of water sports. But also, its special seabed with its crystal-clear waters is ideal for fans of snorkeling and underwater photography.
In the western part, the beach is bordered by several small, picturesque bays.
As a rule, they are preferred by people who appreciate isolated relaxation and nudism. Here we find the cave of Agia Kyriaki among the rocks that is offered for amazing photos.
At the northeastern end of Milos, we find the picturesque fishing village of Pollonia, where it took its name from the ancient god Apollo, in whose honor there was a temple in Pelekouda in ancient times.
It now houses the Cultural Association of Pollonia, where visitors have the opportunity to enjoy events, art and photography exhibits, music – dance concerts and performances.
Along the north coast, dominates the cave of Papafragas next to the Neolithic settlement of Fylakopi. While on the south coast, accessible via unpaved road, are the beaches of Kastanas and Tria Pigadia.
