It's no secret that I absolutely love Greece. It's a special country with so much to offer, and Milos island is one of the most underrated gems in the Aegean Sea, though just as beautiful as its more popular fellow Cycladic islands.

I spent three weeks in Milos and fell in love with its diversity, rich and interesting history, beautiful beaches, quaint villages, and perfect sunsets. With over 75+ beaches to choose from (here are my 20 favorite ones), there's always a corner of the island you can have all to yourself.

Most of the island's population lives on the northern side of the island, where you can also find some of its most beautiful beaches. However, the northern side can get quite windy and when it does, you can take refuge on the southern side of the island that has equally as much to offer. With remote beaches and cliff-side restaurants, the south side is considered off-the-beaten-path.

However, if you're looking to truly explore parts of Milos that not many tourists get to see, you'll want to rent a car (or ATV) and head to the western side of the island. Pack a towel, food and your GoPro and make a day out of it.

Leave yourself at least a day to take a day trip (or half-day tour) around the island to see and swim at some of the beaches that can only be accessed by boat. Some of the tours even take you to nearby islands off the coast such as Kimolos, Polyegos, and Gerontas, each with their own merits for a visit.
