Aera Milos, only 4 km from Adamantas port, is located in the village of Tripiti (meaning ‘dents’ or ‘pits’ in Greek) and the next main stopping point on the island after Plaka to the south. Taking its name from the many pits or dents which have been formed or carved into the soft volcanic rocks around about, it is a picturesque seaside village with a fabulous views across the bay of Milos. This is certainly a place to stop, rest and soak up the atmosphere with a drink – breathing in the island’s beauty, position and ambience.
Near Tripiti are the ancient catacombs and Classical Theatre of Milos, both extremely fine and well-reserved examples of their form. (Checking beforehand is advised as the catacombs are not always open.)
