Adamas is the main port of Milos
and the busiest settlement on the island, although the capital is Plaka
. It is protected from the north wind Meltemi which often blows over the island and usually the sea has no waves at all.
Adamas has a nice promenade around the port, many hotels and restaurants, shops and business services. Most of the organized boat trips and private tours depart from here. The village has two beach - the small beach of Lagada
next to the port, and Adamas beach - a long and narrow strip which merges with the beach of Papikinou
to the south. Lagada has a beach bar which offers sunbeds and umbrella, and Adamas beach has trees for natural shade. The sea bottom is very shallow and suitable for children, though it has pebbles mixed with the sand.
Adamas is the perfect choice for staying on the island, as the distances to all interesting places on Milos are equal.
