Discover Milatos holidays 2021
Milatos is a charming little seaside resort in eastern Crete. It’s divided into two sections: the lovely old village, located just inland, and the seafront district, which is arranged around a picturesque harbour. Sleepy and delightfully unspoilt, Milatos nonetheless boasts a good choice of cafés and tavernas, many of which specialise in seafood. Just behind the village is the famous Milatos Cave, which has an important role in Cretan history, and you’ll find lots of wonderful hikes in the area. There are a couple of beaches and lots of little coves where you can soak up the sun, or you could hire a boat or a kayak to explore the beautiful coastline. And, if you’re in the mood for shopping or clubbing, Milato is only 7 miles from the hustle and bustle of Malia, the island’s main nightlife hub.

Your guide to Milatos holidays
A blissfully quiet little seaside resort, Milatos is the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday in the sun in eastern Crete. You can stroll around the pretty streets of the old village, or head down to the waterfront to see the fishing boats in the harbour. The beaches here are small and mainly pebbly, but the waters are crystal clear and ideal for snorkelling. There are some wonderful walks through the hills and olive groves, and you can also visit the Milatos Cave, an important historic site and landmark. If you fancy a spot of shopping or clubbing, you could head to Malia, just a 15-minute drive away.
Milatos has got a couple of delightful little beaches, and this gorgeous rocky coastline is pocked with tiny coves to explore. The most central beach is located near the harbour, and has some sun beds and parasols for hire, plus easy access to some traditional tavernas for food and drink. The main beach is located further east, and overlooks dazzling blue waters. Like most beaches along this stretch of coast, it is pebbly, so it’s worth packing some beach shoes. There are some facilities, including sun beds, plus a couple of relaxed beach bars. About 1 kilometre west, you’ll find Volakias beach, which is a manmade beach with good facilities.
