Leading fashion publication Vogue (Australian edition) lists the Greek island of Milos as the number one choice in their top 5 destinations to visit in 2017, especially for those looking for an undiscovered paradise.

Milos, which is located in the Aegean Sea and is part of the popular Cyclades, features more than 70 beaches – including “Sarakiniko, the most photographed thanks to its unique lunar landscape, to Kleftiko, an old pirates’ hangout.”

According to Vogue, Milos is “perhaps most famous for being the location of the statue of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty, discovered in 1820 and now on permanent display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.”

But, the Venus De Milo is not the island’s only drawing card, the magazine adds that the beaches are quite different compared with other Greek islands due to their interesting rock formations. The island, Vogue said, “offers the feeling that you’ve landed on the moon thanks to its smooth limestone rock formation that makes up the impressive landscape.”

Chosen by leading travel stylist Maria Paradisis, after Milos she lists Cartagena in Colombia, Tea Trails in Sri Lanka, Taormina in Italy and Dubrovnik in Croatia as the most stylish and “Instagrammable” picks of where to travel this year.
