I am going to Milos soon - I thought I would compile some information about beaches to see while there:

Sarakiniko Beach – This is one of the most stunning beaches on Milos, known for its white volcanic rocks that contrast with the sea. Some great photo ops here!

Tsigrado Beach – Tsigrado is a secluded Beach and can only be accessed through a narrow passage, which adds to its charm. It's untouched, fairly private and worth the extra effort to get there. Being here does feel like an escape!

Firiplaka Beach –This beach has s a long stretch of white, powdery sand lapped by crystal-clear waters. It's a great beach for families because there's more around here - like food, bathrooms, etc.

Papafragas Beach – Did you know this beach once attracted pirates? That's cool! There are some "cave like" formations here, which probably is what attracted the pilots.

Are there other beaches I should put on the list?

Milos is beautiful! Everyone called the place with the white rocks a beach but there was no sand! Don't get me wrong, it was gorgeous, but I kind of expected a traditional beach day and was confused when we pulled up LOL. I got some great pics though. I forget the name of it, does anyone know?
 

Favorite Smaller Islands to Visit on Greece

I'm planning a trip to Greece later this year and would love some advice. While I've heard a lot about the popular islands like Santorini and Mykonos, I'm more interested in exploring some of the smaller, lesser-known islands.

Do you have any recommendations for charming, smaller islands to visit in Greece? I'm looking for those hidden gems that offer beautiful scenery, unique culture, and a relaxing atmosphere without the massive tourist crowds.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Best places in Greece to see the Venetian influences?

I am interested in the Venetian influences that are interwoven into certain parts of the country. From the architecture to the local customs, I understand that the reach of the Venetian Republic left a notable mark that can still be felt today.

I'm in the midst of planning an itinerary focused on exploring these influences and I’d love to hear from you about the must-visit spots where one can best experience the essence of the Venetian presence in Greece.

Do any of you have recommendations for specific towns, buildings, ruins, or even local festivities that embody this cultural blend? Any hidden gems or lesser-known locations that surprised you with their Venetian charm?

Of course, I expect Crete, with its famed Venetian fortresses and the romantic old town of Chania, to be part of this list. But I'm certain there is a wealth of places, perhaps on other islands or on the mainland, which equally showcase this unique period of history. I also know there are influences in Corfu. Is there anywhere else?

Visiting Delphi worth it?

I am trying to figure out if visiting Delphi is worth it. I want to fit seeing as many historical sites as I can into my itinerary. I've always been fascinated by ancient cultures and their histories, which naturally puts places like Athens and Santorini on my list. Recently, I've been reading up on Delphi and am intrigued by its significant historical and cultural value, not to mention its picturesque landscapes.

Given its status as the center of the world in ancient Greek civilization and the home of the famous oracle, it sounds like a place full of fascinating stories and ruins. However, I'm also aware that Greece is full of remarkable places to visit, each with its unique allure.

Finding Good Food Tours of Greece?

I love Greek cuisine. I cook it all the time and I love trying new recipes. The time has come for me to think about planning a food tour! Does anyone have any advice?

I would love to hear from members of this forum about their experiences with food tours in Greece.
  1. Which regions or cities offer the best food tours?
  2. Any specific food tour companies or guides that you would recommend?
  3. What were some of the standout dishes or culinary experiences on your tour?
  4. Are there options for people with dietary restrictions, such as vegetarians?
  5. What should one expect in terms of cost and duration?
Any tips or advice on how to get the most out of such a tour would be greatly appreciated too! Thanks!
