Pelekouda, Pollonia 848 00, Greece
Escape to Milos: grab a cab to Pollonia, and be welcomed to Salt Suites with a shot of tsipouro and a homemade turkish delight. All curved walls and exposed wood, this ocean retreat is unpretentious and tasteful, an update on traditional Greek hospitality. Sunsets from their deck are overwhelmingly relaxing, and it faces a quiet bay that somehow makes you feel safe and realize you’re on an island in the middle of the ocean. It’s steps away from a “beach”, great for cooling off. Hire a driver ahead of time, or rent a car and visit some beaches—you’ll have to do your own research since there are 77 of them… and consider hiring a boat to take you to the beaches that aren’t accessible by road.
