RATING SCALE

5 = Superb! Best we visited. Worth going far out of our way to swim there again
4 = Very good. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = Good. We would choose it for swimming among other beaches if we were in the area
2 = Average. We could go for swimming again if we happened to be in the area
1 = Just OK. The beach was fine for swimming and sunbathing one time
0 = Disappointing. We will not return to this beach

Papafragas Beach
Milos island
  • Beach berm:
    Sand, Shingle
  • Seafloor:
    Sand, Shingle
  • Water rating: 3/5 about
  • Access:
    Poor = Accessible by car, poor road, plus a long walk or climb.

    The parking is very near the cove, but getting to the water requires going down a few very precarious steps carved into the rock. Not impossible, but you have to be careful and have steady shoes.
  • Amenities:
    NONE, bring your own drinking water and food
  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Site suitable for parking for the day, but not for camping
  • Snorkeling:
    Good snorkeling site
    Don't go without your snorkeling gear!
  • Notes:
    Papafragas is the most appealing of a series of coves that carve the volcanic rock near the archaeological site of Filakopi. The sandy patch at the end of a long and completely enclosed cove can only accommodate about a dozen people, so going early would be adviced. The cove opens up to the aegean through a picturesque arch. If it weren't so close to the main road, it would have been one of the most romantic little beaches of Greece.
RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
