Sarakiniko Beach is a well-known beach on Milos Island, named after the Saracen pirates who used it as a refuge. The seas are azure blue, with white volcanic rocks and a powdery surface that resembles the moons surface. The smoothed and carved rock contrasts beautifully with the blue water beyond, creating a breathtaking sight. A little inlet with shallow water isn't your typical beach. There's a good possibility you've seen Sarakiniko even if you haven't been there. Innumerable fashion photo shoots have used the forms and hues of weathered volcanic ash, sandstone, and pumice stone as an intriguing backdrop. There are numerous cliffs, caverns, and rock pools to explore along the coast.
