It is for good reason that the island of Milos is primarily famous for the statue of Aphrodite, the Venus de Milo, now housed in the Louvre. Venus is the goddess of love and pleasure. Nothing comes close to the joy that is to be on the endlessly beautiful volcanic ground of this little gem of the Aegean sea, just North of the sea of Crete. There are about 70 beaches on Milos. Some of them calm and tranquil, others wild and ecstatic. All of them bound to stay with you, forever.
