Milatos is a village on the east coast, close to Agios Nikolaos and next to the better known seaside resort Sisi. The village is split into Milatos, which is up the hill, and Milatos Beach down the hill.
The upper village of Milatos is the more traditional part, with old stone houses that are painted white, narrow streets with bougainvillas, fruit trees and pussycats that wonder around and enjoy the sun and the easy life. Here it is quiet and there are not many amenities (at least not that I have seen). In and around the old Milatos village some holiday houses are being built, bringing new life to the village and its economy. Still most of the inhabitants are older people. There is also a nice church in the village but usually it is closed. The surroundings of old Milatos consists mainly of fields with olive trees. Now and than you can see an eagle flying around.
In the harbour of Milatos (near Milatos Beach) there is a selection of tavernas (mainly fish restaurants) and there is a super market. The beach inside the village is not so special though and if you want to find better beaches you have to make a short walk towards the village of Sisi. In between Sisi and Milatos there is a choice of three different beaches, all with facilities (umbrellas and sunbeds). Because Milatos beach is still at some distance from the main road and because the beaches inside the village are not that spectaculair it also stays reasonably quiet here (compaired to for instance Sisi). Most of the accommodations consist of studios and apartments. In the area there are a number of cute little churches and you can find another of the attractions of Milatos: the Milatos Cave, which can be reached over a road that leads through upper Milatos.
Upper Milatos is still a very quiet and untouristed place.
