By now summer is at its height, the weather is quite warm, and the only thing I can think about is the beach. Ι can enjoy the crystal waters of the Aegean in one of the island’s beaches, along with numerous other visitors who have come to Milos from around the world. Tourist traffic has surely risen and culminates in August. If I intend to visit the island during this popular month, I will need to have secured my accommodation and tickets already, so as to avoid the hassle and waste of time. The summer trade winds have picked up and are blowing in often now, adding to the characteristic identity of the Cyclades cooling me down and. Fortunately the island has many leeward beach options if the northerly winds happen to become a little more intense.
In the middle of the summer people spend their day on the beaches, in shops and at the local tavernas (restaurants). The evening calls for me to enjoy the nightlife, from “quiet” beach bars under the starry sky, to clubs where I can dance until dawn and everything in between.
During the summer my options are expanded with the cultural festival of Milos, which invites known and established artists, but also the various local festivals. In these I shall be able to taste local dishes and good wine, while the locals will invite me to dance with them to traditional Greek songs.
