Milatos Port

(Minor Ports)

Milatos Beach

Milatos is called the Fishing Village because of it's Fish Tavernas. All of them are excellent - really if you cook fish every day for a living you must be good at it. The Greeks swarm here at the weekends to feast in the tavernas. There are many hotels and apartments here. Ranging from little 2 people apartments to great big huge complexes. All Inclusive if you choose but if you do choose these do not just stay in them and miss out on the ambience of the Village. We are split into two - the lower half is called Milatos Paralia ( that means it is the beach) and the upper is Epano Milatos ( because it is uphill). We have famous caves here - the Milatos Cave and from it you can view the Selinari Gorge. The place is a "twitchers" paradise with the ulltimate viewing being birds of prey and Griffin Vultures. It has a wonderful little harbour where fish are unloaded from daily and all day. I fell in love with Milatos - I hope it never changes but I feel that I must promote it. It is my lttle bit of paradise on Crete.
