On a hill of 220m above sea level, Plaka was originally built for the protection against pirates and it is known as the best – and most popular – place in the island to watch the sunset, which means it will always be full of people by the end of the day. We recommend to go early to Cafe Utopia to get a nice spot and a beer while you wait.
You can also go to “Panaghia Korfiatissa” – the cathedral on the highest point of the island – and enjoy a dreamy sunset right from its marble yard and admire the stars later.
It’s definitely worth spending the night as well since Plaka is full of small traditional shops, restaurants and cafeterias and has a great view to the bay of Milos.
For a more quiet sunset, we recommend Plathiena Beach.
