A Beach That Looks Like the Moon

Nestled on Greece's Milos Island, Sarakiniko Beach offers a captivating escape from the more popular destinations like Santorini and Mykonos. Its allure lies in its unique geological formations, sculpted by volcanic activity and erosion over millions of years, resulting in striking bone-white cliffs resembling a lunar landscape. This beach has a rich history, once prized by ancient Greeks for its obsidian and serving as a hideout for Byzantine-era pirates.

Accessible from Athens via a 2-hour ferry ride to Milos, followed by a short taxi or bus trip, Sarakiniko offers various activities. Visitors can explore jagged canyons, swim, snorkel, and even cliff jump. The beach's layout provides different experiences: rugged canyons for exploration on one side and calm waters for swimming on the other. The presence of the "Africa" shipwreck and nearby abandoned mine tunnels adds to the area's allure.

For an optimal visit, plan your trip between May and October, avoiding the strong Meltemi winds in July and August. This timing also allows you to witness the breathtaking golden hour reflections during sunset. Despite the absence of amenities like tavernas, Sarakiniko's untouched beauty and diverse activities make it a hidden gem worth discovering.
