Milatos is a touristic village, which has kept many of its traditional features, while 1km north is the coastal village of Paralia Milatos.
The area is famous for its cave which is located just outside the village, where in 1823, a large number of civilian residents hid in the cave to be saved from the Turks who massacred many of them after 15 days. The Milatos today has been developed and has also an important fishing port. The surrounding area is overgrown with large olive groves and the coast is full of small rocky bays. Among them there are several beaches where you can swim. Around 1km to the east of Milatos, you will find small secluded coves with narrow strips of sand, which are surrounded by tall vertical cliffs.
The bays of Milatos are ideal for isolation, although usually waves are very intense, stifling the small beaches. There is a quite large beach with pebbles and rocks in some places.
