Day 1: Visit local beaches and Mandrakia
The island contains the most jaw-dropping beaches, most famously Sarakiniko, aka the moon beach, on the north side of the island. The island is small enough to drive anywhere quickly, but I highly recommend getting a rental car or motor bike (you'll need to get an international drivers permit and reserve ahead of time if you don't want a manual car). Since this is a hotspot, the earlier you get to the beach, the better. Bring a towel because you're going to want to jump into the most inviting, crystal clear water.
From there, take a quick drive to the traditional fishing village of Mandrakia. Explore the quaint village before having the most amazing lunch at Medusa. Relax at another beach on the north side of the island before heading back to get ready for dinner. Explore the main city of Adamas in the evening and have dinner on the water at Nostos. Be sure to pick up a bottle of wine from the market and enjoy a glass on your patio back at the hotel (Hotel Milos Resort) before calling it a night.
Day 2: Sailing cruise
Take a sailing cruise around the island. There are countless sailing tours around the island, all offering slightly different routes/time frames. We used Sailing Milos and I can't recommend them enough, but they all sound just as great.
All the tours leave from the main port at Adamas and make their way to Kleftiko, with a handful of other stops along the way. You'll be able to swim in the bright blue water and enjoy traditional Greek feasts and bottomless Greek wine while on board, all while learning history and culture of the island.
Once you get back in the evening, you'll be tired, so grab dinner at one of the cafes near the port. Flisvos has some great traditional Greek kebabs and delicious Tzatziki. Grab some homemade baklava, or pastries for breakfast at the Artemis bakery.
Day 3: Beach hopping
If you're feeling adventurous, head to Tsigrado in the morning. You can only get there by ladder, so come prepared. It's small and perfect for a morning swim. After that, head to Paliochori beach and grab a chair at the Sirocco Beach Club & Restaurant. You get the chairs for the day and can order drinks and amazing meals, some of which are cooked under ground in the volcanic sand. The sandy beaches are calm so it's a great place to leisurely enjoy the water.
After a relaxing and luxurious beach day, head up to the highest point on the island, the capital city of Plaka for breathtaking view of sunset. You can walk the old streets, stop at some local boutiques, grab a drink at Verina before watching sunset near the church. Grab dinner up there, or head back to Adamas for dinner at O Petrinos or Aragosta.
