Firiplaka Beach is the second-most popular beach in Milos, renowned for its long stretch of glistening white sand, milky blue waters, and rocky outcrops.
I have put together this complete guide to Firiplaka Beach including how to get there, the best time to visit, and what to expect when you arrive!
WHERE IS FIRIPLAKA BEACH?
Firiplaka Beach lies along the southern coastline of Milos Island. From the main town of Adamantas to Fyriplaka Beach the drive takes around twenty minutes.

HOW TO GET TO FYRIPLAKA BEACH
The best way to reach Milos Firiplaka and other attractions on the island is to rent a scooter, ATV, or car for the day and make your way over to Firiplaka Milos.
There are a number of places to organize a scooter, ATV, and car rental in Milos which can all be found within walking distance as soon as you step off the ferry in the main harbor-side town of Adamantas.
Scooter rental Milos:
I personally rented my scooter from Nicki Motors and found them to be the most affordable and reliable.
From €25 per day, Nicki Motors offers scooter rentals and ATV rentals, but not car rentals.
Car rental Milos:
If you would prefer to rent a car in Milos, it’s best to book online in advance to secure a set of wheels for when you arrive.
There are many small cars and SUVs available to rent that will get you around the island safely. Click Here to check availability and prices.
Note: An international driver’s license is mandatory for renting scooters and cars on Milos island, so make sure to have this ready to present along with your passport or ID.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT FYRIPLAKA MILOS
Straw umbrellas line the long stretch of beach at Fyriplaka, which you’ll find is the only means of shade at this location so they tend to get occupied very quickly.
Best to bring your own beach umbrella and quick-dry travel towel to lay out on the sand if you plan to stay here for a while.
The most iconic feature at Firiplaka Beach is the enormous rocky outcrop about halfway along the bay. There is a natural archway carved into the rock that is possible to swim through.
The water is only about shoulder height so it’s perfectly safe to go inside the cave for a closer look.
Apart from this, you can find smaller rock pools and lagoons at one end of Fyriplaka Beach which is ideal for snorkeling.
