Climb to Plaka Castle
Plaka is a short drive or bus ride from Adámas. From the main square, keep walking up and up, and up, and you will be rewarded with a marvelous view of the island. This climb has a large number of stairs, and in the summer heat can be challenging. There is no shade and no water available once you depart the plaza in Plaka.
Take a boat tour of the island
We are planning an optional boat tour of the island for the morning of 28 June 2024 for conference participants, but there are operators who can offer accompanying persons half or full-day excursions at any point. Boats are lined up at the marina's edge near the main square in Adámas.
Cooking classes at Avromilos Restaurant.
One of the highly-rated local restaurants offers bespoke cooking classes.
The beaches on Milos are beautiful and varied. They appear on both on the inner bay and around the outside of the island. Below is summary information on a handful of beaches; details and photos are available at Greece Travel Ideas.
Arrays of lounges and umbrellas that appear on many beaches are available for rent. A short while after sitting down, someone will approach you and ask for payment, in cash. Typical rates are EUR 5 to 10 for the day.
