Milos is often referred to by locals as ‘the island of colors’ because of its volcanic origins. Part of the Cycladic group of islands, Milos is known for its unique beaches and crystal waters of colorful beauty; it offers numerous thermal springs and a multitude of underwater caves. Considering its geological origins, it is also home to one of the most ancient mines in the Mediterranean. Numerous fine works of art were found on Milos, notably the statue of Aphrodite called ‘Venus de Milo’, now in the Louvre in Paris, and the statue of Asclepius, now in the British Museum in London. Milos is not one of the more famous Greek islands, but its distinct landscape and traditional Greek island hospitality are what keep this island’s visitors coming back for more!
