Milos in October...boat tours still available? How much is closed on island at that time?  (3 Answers)

      • I posted this on the TA forum as well but wanted to post here as well for those who don't frequent over there/to get a potential different demographic. If you read and/or answered already on TA please disregard here. Thanks for your time!**

My husband and I (late 20s) will be traveling to Milos in the beginning of October. We will be flying and arriving in the morning on October 6th. We enjoy relaxing on beaches, good food, and don't require nightlife in order to have a good time. But we also like activity to round things out such as hiking, bicycling, day trips around the island, horse riding, trip to Kimolos etc....to have as options....we tend to be too active to lay on beaches for days on end. We are pretty independent travelers but there's certain things you just can't do on your own such as boat trips/horse rides/scuba.... To get to my actual question, will the boat trips still be available in early October? I've done some research and it looks like the websites say they end in September. We certainly don't mind a quiet island but my concern is that all of the activities will be shut down by then. Any experience with this? Perhaps restaurants closed as well?

Also, this is splitting hairs for sure....but wonder if I can get some opinions on our itinerary? As said, we will arrive in Milos early morning on the 6th. What I can't decide is if we should leave for Santorini on the 10th on the ferry from ~10a-12p or wait and take the ferry to Santorini on the 11th from 11:30p-03:00am in order to buy another day in Milos. Is ask this because the second options shortens our time in Naxos. To hopefully make my question less confusing:

Option 1:
Oct 6th arrive Milos 07:30a
Oct 11 Milos to Santorini 11:20p-02:50a (on the 12th) {5nights in Milos/almost 6 full days)
Oct 15th Santorini to Naxos 3:30p-5:30p or 1p-2:45p (3nights in Santorini/~3.5 days)
Oct 18th leave Naxos at 3p flying to Kos and hopefully getting ferry to Kalymnos that night (3nights in Naxos/~2.5days)
Climb on Kalymnos until the 26th when we fly back to Athens

Option 2:
Oct 6th arrive Milos 07:30a
Oct 10 Milos to Santorini 10:00a-11:50a (4nights in Milos/~4 days)
Oct 13th Santorini to Naxos 3:30p-5:30p or 1p-2:45p (3nights in Santorini/~2.5days)
Oct 18th leave Naxos at 3p flying to Kos and hopefully getting ferry to Kalymnos that night (5nights in Naxos/~4.5days)
Climb on Kalymnos until the 26th when we fly back to Athens

Thank you for humoring my question :-) I am 100% sure if will be awesome either way. I am absolutely enchanted with the pictures from Milos. We plan to rent a car on either island. Perhaps knowing how "shut down" Milos is that time of year will help decide on amount of time spent on each island. I wouldn't even be worried about deciding now except we have our heart set on a place in Santorini and will need to finalize the reservation.

Thank you for your helpfulness and time in replying!

5 Days, Milos and...  (1 Answer)

Hi, I will be arriving in Milos at 10 pm on 2 September. I have 5 full days, and would like your advice on how to spend them. I enjoy Nature/Outdoors Activities, Local Culture, Dining/Drinking. Not a big fan of touristy traps...

I'd like to visit 1 more Island besides Milos (2 days in One, 3 Days in another) How should I split the 5 days? Perhaps Paros? Or what about Santorini? Any others in the Cyclades?

I know 5 days is relatively short, so I am not looking to pack as much in as possible. Just my first taste of Greece, want to enjoy the vibe. I'm sure I'll be returning.

Thank you for your time, I'm looking forward to it!

Villa Notos in Milos  (2 Answers)

Hello,
My husband and I are scheduled to stay at Villa Notos in Milos for over a week later this summer. We currently have a superior studio reserved. I'm trying to get a sense from someone who has seen these apartment/studios if it would be worth upgrading to the penthouse apartment. I know it costs more, but is the top-floor veranda and views much better than the superior studio views and veranda? I'm willing to splurge if I knew it was a big improvement, view-wise. I've already read reviews of many of the room types on TripAdivisor, but none of them really address the difference in views/outdoor lounging for Penthouse versus Superior Studio.

One more note, the Deluxe Studio is already booked, so that's not an option.


Thanks for any input from someone who has seen Villa Notos.

1 day

We are going to arrive on Milos off of a small cruise ship(Seabourne) at 0800 and leave at 1700, 9May - Sunday. Rent a car or scooter, or do a small boat around the island and/or just walk around? The 4 hour cruise excursion visits Sarakiniko beach, Apollonia, Papafragas, Glaronissia, Filakopi, and Adamas. We don't mind being on our own if we could make better use of our 8 hours on Milos. Thanks, from Texas

milos!  (4 Answers)

G'day everyone! My Girlfriend and i are travelling to Milos in August and we have two places in mind for accomodation from looking on the net, one in Pachaina
and the
other was in Sarakiniko, but we can't seem to find much
infomation on these places besides the great beaches! We also will not have any
transport so would it be better just staying in Pollonia or somewhere else? We
would love to be near nice beaches with options for eating out. Thank you for
any advice you might offer us!
Cheers!

To go or not to go?  (6 Answers)

Here's hoping someone can make up my mind. Me and my husband will be in Paros for 5 days and we have 3-4 days to spare b/4 going to Crete for 10 days. We were considering Milos as an option since paros and milos are both in the Cyclades. I have no doubt Milos has wonderful beaches but we were wondering what the night life was like and if this is an island were tourists go or greeks go for vacation?

Also wondering where would be the best location for hotel (we like the hustle and bustle; were from NYC) and if there is transportation from Paros to Milos?

Any regards would be greatly appreciated.

Accomodation at Paliochori  (1 Answer)

Hi,
Can anyone recommend apartments or studios at Paliochori that have great views preferably close to the beach? Has anyone stayed at the Artemis Villas? Thanks, Bitsy


Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · February 13, 2007
Beach Access  (4 Answers)

The Lonely Planet book for the Greek Islands says that to reach some of the best beaches in Milos you must take a boat tour which stops at some of them for a limited time. If we are not interested in visiting beaches with a group & would also prefer to be able to stake out one beach & stay there all day, are there secluded & beautiful beaches there reachable by foot or bike or rental car? Would it be recommended or make sense in this case to rent a car while we're there?

Thanks!

Hi,
We would like to visit the islands of Milos and Sifnos from Santorini in May 07.
Has anybody tried this? and if so is it feisable in 2 weeks? We would travel from Athens but the flights for us from our local airport are too expensive! Santorini for us is a better option.
Thank you for any help.
