May and June sets the ground every year in Milos, to bridge Spring and Summer. The revitalized natural environment vividly colors the first hot days, and since the summer trade winds haven’t yet started, the rising temperature allows me to take the first steps on the beach and dive into the sea. This is a very good period to visit the island. Lodging is at a better price than the rest of the summer, while all tourist activities (excursions etc.) have already started for the Island’s arriving guests.
May Day in Milos
May Day in the island provides me with an opportunity to participate in an age-old custom. Girls collect flowers from the blooming fields and make wreaths to hang outside their homes’ doors. Boys, on the other hand, wait until night to steal the wreaths and hang them in the village square. Next morning, the girls go back to the village square in order to retrieve their wreaths, and exchange tricks and teases with the boys.
