The Cyclades also includes Mykonos, Ios, Paros, Naxos and Santorini, plus a number of smaller islands.

The most convenient route to Milos is by air to Athens International Airport (ATH), followed by a connecting flight to the island.

Milos Island National Airport (MLO) is located 5km (3mi) southeast of the port of Adamantas, which lies directly below Milos town, known as Plaka.
