This is the most beautiful but also the most dangerous beach in Greece

Cyclades ● Milos ● 02 August 2017

Milos has maybe the most beautiful beaches in Greece. Due to its volcanic background, Milos has unique landscape and the most impressive and beautiful beaches in the Aegean Sea. In Milos, millions of years ago, happened a huge volcanic eruption that formatted the landscape with reddish cliffs, underwater caves and characteristic beaches. Therefore, Milos is a very interesting island, and its stunning beaches are literally innumerable as the island has more than 70 beaches!

One of these beaches, which undoubtedly belongs to the top 3 of Milos beaches, is Tsigrado. Tsigrado is a non-organised, secluded small cove with white soft sand and gorgeous waters. The most impressive thing in this beach is the colour of its waters as well as the huge, rocky cliffs around it.

Tsigrado Beach

Tsigrado is located 11 km from Adamas Milos, the port of the island. The route to the beach is easy up to a point. There is a mild dirt road, and the discomfort is low. However, the things after the dirt road get much more difficult. At the end of the dirt road, there is a sign, which says that the descent to the beach is on your own risk! Basically, that means that after you leave your car, you will face many dangers.

The lovers of adventure and extreme sports will love Tsigrado!

If you decide that is worth the risk and you want to swim in the emerald waters of this beach, you have to go down there from a narrow pass in the rock. You only have a rope to catch it if you lose your balance. After this pass, there is a wooden ladder, which is your only alternative if you don't want to jump from the rock to the beach.

Of course, the beauty of the landscape will compensate you, and you can spend a few hours to admire the magnificent scenery, sunbathe on the white soft sand and swim in these turquoise waters. Because Tsigrado is totally unorganised, don't forget to take with you water.

The bad news are that after your astonishing bath, you should take the same way to go back. The ascent is more dangerous and difficult than the descent, and the relaxation after the hours of sunbathing won't help.

The good news are that from Adamas Milos, are organised every day excursions to visit Tsigrado by boat!
