In the northeast of the island of Milos there is one of the most famous Greek beaches – Sarakiniko. The beach got its name from the Saracen pirates, who often “settled” on the shores of Milos. The coast also offers scenic views of the opposing islands of Sifnos and Kimolos.
In Sarakiniko you will find a small beach for beach lovers but mainly beautiful rocks to spread your towels and take a dip in the clear blue and crystal clear waters. The beach is not organized.
It is often compared to a lunar landscape.Sarakiniko isn’t the typical “beach”. people often refer to the characteristic landscape of Sarakiniko as Lunar due to its particular appearance. The white bone beach has those unusual characteristics as a result of volcanic rocks formed by the wind and waves.
