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.
