WHERE IS TSIGRADO BEACH?
Tsigrado Beach lies on the southern stretch of coastline on Milos Island and it’s quite easy to find as it neighbors one of the more popular beaches in Milos, Fyriplaka.
HOW TO GET HERE
The best way to get here is to rent a scooter, ATV, or a car for the day and make your way over to Tsigrado 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. Click Here to check availability and prices.
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.

On the way to the beach
WHAT TO EXPECT
To start with, Tsigrado Beach is tightly nestled between volcanic cliffs, and getting down to the beach from the car park can be quite tricky for some but it’s also part of the adventure.
Firstly you’ll have to scale down the cracks in the mountainside, using the ropes as aid, and then finally climb down a wooden ladder that emerges on the shoreline.
I may make it sound more gnarly than what it is, but it’s honestly not as hard as you think. If you take your time getting down, you’ll be absolutely fine!
Once you’ve made it down safely, find a spot to perch up along the beach and swim out into the shallow waters to explore the many caves, natural arches, secluded inlets, and cliff jumps that this place has to offer!
If you’re not game to climb down the cliffs, the view from above is just as rewarding.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
First and foremost, take a mask and snorkel to this location as it’s one of the best snorkeling spots in Milos!
There are no beachside cafes, restaurants, or bars down on the beach, so make sure to pack plenty of drinking water and snacks to keep you fuelled.
Also, this beach doesn’t have any beach umbrellas along the shoreline like most other beaches in Milos. If you do want to take shade out of the sun, be prepared and bring your own beach umbrella to set up down on the beach.
