ADAMAS MAIN PORT
Adamas is the main port of Milos and also a seaside village of white houses shimmering on the blue waters of the Aegean. This village was founded in 1835 by refugees from Sfakia who came from Crete after the failure of their rebellion against the Turks.
Adamas became increasingly important historically because of its large and safe, naturally made harbor, and its strategic position in the eastern Mediterranean.
Adamas is surrounded by many beautiful beaches and offers various tourist facilities such as banks, post-office, doctors, tourist agencies, port police, hotel units and an intense nightlife. Many old churches, as well as mining and ecclesiastical museums, are worth visiting.
