Pollonia is the quiet, family-friendly village on the north-east corner of Milos island and it'll make you feel like you're taking a vacation from your vacation.

It's much smaller than I expected it to be and much more serene than I imagined. Yet, somehow it's perfect and charming, just the way it is.

It's a culinary delight, given that it has a seaside lane with restaurants and cafes on both sides.

Here's what you need to know about visiting Pollonia village.

What To Do in Pollonia

Despite being a quiet village, Pollonia holds its own when it comes to being a quaint and picturesque Milos village. Walk around the streets and along the seaside.

There's a pier that's quite relaxing to hang out on — unless it's windy and the waves crash over the wall!

There's a church at either side of the bay. Agia Paraskevi is closest to the main road, and if you walk around the bay, you'll see the church of Saint Nicholas. It's a nice church with an awesome view.

While there, check out Poseidon's Throne, a geothermic rock formation opening up towards the sea. While it's noted on local maps, it's not yet on Google — you can find it here.

Enjoy the Beach

Pollonia has one of the best beaches on Milos island. It's long and sandy, with plenty of trees with shade (which is surprisingly rare on the island). The water is clear, there are sunbeds available for hire, and you are just steps away from restaurants and cafes. You can't go wrong!

Pollonia is one of the few places on the island that has a perfect view of the sunrise. If you're an early bird, you'll love it.

Wine Tasting

Wine lovers, check out Kostantakis Cave Winery for a little Greek wine tasting. They're the only official winery on Milos island. The family converted a cave to a cellar, which is cool to see.

It's such a beautiful property, and during your visit, you'll also learn about the wines, the history of the winery and their wine-making process.


Pollonia also has one of the diving centers in Milos. Contact Milos Diving Center if you're interested. Two certified dives will set you back about €90, but they have intro dives as well for about €35.

You'll have to plan around the weather as the dives don't happen when there are high winds.

Kimolos Day Trip

Though the main Milos port is in Adamas, Pollonia has a small port with daily ferry schedule to the neighboring Kimolos island.

The ferry is only about 10 minutes and makes for a great day-trip. It's very cheap, and if you have a rental car you can take it with you on the ferry to explore more of Kimolos.
