10Milos, Greece

Mykonos may get all the love, but Milos also has gorgeous beaches and arguably a better backstory. Here you’ll find catacombs to rival Rome’s, an open-cast mine, the remains of an amphitheatre, and plenty of maritime, folk and archaeological museums to keep you busy during the daytime.

In terms of beaches, Tsigrado is a must – just know that in order to reach it you’ll have to lower yourself with a rope!
