3 1/2 - 4 1/2 full days in Milos - What to do?

Hi. I can have either 3 1/2 or 4 1/2 full days in Milos arriving from Crete (where I could probably use an extra day so I am leaning to 3 1/2 in Milos).

I am staying at Santa Maria Suites in Adhamas. Anyone been there? I am also open to suggetions on that as well since I have time to change.

I want to spend at least one day on the sailing trip around the island and that other island next door (forget the name).

What else would people suggest? Is 3 1/2 full days enough or do I need the extra day?

I like hiking around, sightseeing, taking pictures, etc. I can get a car if needed. I am not so interested in nightlife and partying, etc.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Happy travels to all!

Any Crete pros care to chime in? I fly into Chania on 13 Aug (late) and can stay on Crete until 19 Aug or 20 Aug and I have a 7am flight out of Heraklion on either day. Would love some suggestions on itinerary. I don't want to be running around 24/7 either, am not interested in clubs or night bar hopping.

Hiking, sightseeing, etc. works for me.

I would appreciate any and all advice.

Happy travels to all!

Hi James,

All very valid questions.

You could hit some of the major points of Milos in 3.5 days, but it's hardly enough time to experience the island. Most visitors to Milos end up saying: "Had I known, I'd have arranged to stay in Milos far longer".


You are right about the fast catamarans. The SpeedRunner and the High-Speed, as well as the conventional ferries are more likely to sail even if the Meltemi winds keep the SuperJet "grounded".

Santa Maria is one of the better accommodations in Milos. From what I've read, people tend to be happier when staying in the renovated suites, as opposed to their older style rooms.

For the island tour, I strongly recommend both. For a more detailed description and comparison of the two, please refer to several other comments I've made on the TA forums.

Ditto for the "must see" in Milos. I've commented a lot in the past right here, on TA. Just search the Milos forum.
