Sarakiniko beach

Sarakiniko Beach, located on the north shore of Milos Island, is a unique beach where waves driven by wind have created grayish and white volcanic rock formations, resembling a mysterious moonscape. These amazing shapes of soft rocks replace the sand and give the beach an unusual look, making it one of the most picturesque beaches in the Aegean. There is a tiny stretch of sand at the front of a narrow, calm canal, but the white rocks are where most people lay their towels to soak in the unique beauty of Sarakiniko beach.

Getting There

Milos Island has a national airport, so travelers can fly into Athens before making their way to this small Greek island paradise. It is recommended to rent a car to reach Sarakiniko beach, as there is a large parking area located about 200 metres from the beach. Whether you are flying from Toronto or Montreal, London or Vancouver, you can find a direct flight to Athens, and from there, you can fly to the Milos Island National Airport.
