Beautiful panorama of town Adamantas is for most visitors to the island Milos the first thing they see here. Snow-white town in the slopes of the arid hill is the largest port on the island. Even if you arrive here by plane, you can, just after leaving the tiny airport, enjoy the view bay to the town across the. Thanks to the ferry port, supermarkets, taverns, small shops with souvenirs and other services it is quite busy here, especially in the evening.

Adamantas is nicer from distance than from close. Traditional views of the town are from the south from road or beach Papikinou.

The monument in the town center

The town center is basically a quiet zone around the monument. Everything is close from there – yacht harbor, ferry and taverns along the main road.

Main street

The main street leading to the ferry is besieged by shops and taverns. Above them are denizens houses stuck in the hillside. There is also a range of accommodation options. Most tourists, however, choose locations closer to the beach.

Ferry

Life on the island is quite dependable on the arrivals and departures of ferries bringing here new tourists.
