Milos is the fifth largest island in the Cyclades with an
area of 151 sq. km, a population of 3,222 inhabitants and
126 km of coastline. Its shape resembles a horseshoe, as the
two sides of the island are joined by a narrow isthmus; in
between, the sea penetrates deep inland to form the huge Bay
of Milos and its safe natural harbour, which is one of the
largest in the Mediterranean.
