1. In which city to stay in Milos?
Milos has only about 5,000 inhabitants. The accommodation offer is not as developed compared to other more touristic islands of the Cyclades. For example, compared to accommodation in Mykonos (Best places to stay in Mykonos), or in Santorini (Where to stay in Santorini). Here are the 4 main towns, or rather villages, where you can stay during a trip to Milos. Each location has its pros and cons.
1.1. Adamas: the port of Milos
If you are going to visit Milos by ferry, you will arrive at the port of Adamas. Here you can easily find restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy seafood, but also local cuisine. This is a good place to stay in Mykonos, if you only stay one night on the island or if you arrive on the island late.
For a trip for two, the Capetan Giorgantas hotel will be perfect for a night in Milos, or even more.
For a family trip, this pretty holiday home will be perfect: Casa Aiora.
1.2 Plaka: a noce village in the heights of the island of Milos
In the pretty village of Plaka is the Archaeological Museum of the island where you can see the various stones and statues that bear witness to the ancient past of Milos. Place is inland, but from the heights of Plaka there is a beautiful panorama of the whole island of Milos and the sea. So many travelers come here in the evening for a magnificent sunset. Among the good addresses in Plaka, there is EN PLO: from its terrace, you can admire a panorama of the island.
A 5-minute walk from the center of Plaka, you can rent apartments for two, but also 3 or 4 people, as well as an entire maisonette for 5 people at Vivere A Plakes. This is a good place to sleep in Milos in the village of Plaka.
1.3 Pollonia: a seaside resort where to stay in Milos
Pollonia is a fishing village, but also a seaside resort. On site, you can find a few hotels, but also many hotel rooms or apartments for rent.
Pollonia Studios: located in the city center of Pollonia, this is a good place to stay in Milos, if you want to stay on the island for several days.
1.4 Klima: a nice fishing village to visit
This fishing village is part of our TOP 7 must-see places to visit in Milos. There are very few accommodations on site, and prices are higher than elsewhere on the island. However, it is a real experience. In fact, you can sleep here in a fisherman’s house, directly on the beach, almost with your feet in the water.

2. Where to stay in Milos by the sea?

Hotels. Among the good hotels where to sleep in Milos close to the beach, there is: Artemis Deluxe Room. On site, you will find an outdoor swimming pool, and even a private beach! The hotel is located 10km from Adamas.
