Ancient Kameiros, Rhodes

Another place worth of visiting during your stay in Rhodes is Κάμειρος. It is further away from city of Rhodes than Petaloudes, but it also takes one hour by bus to get there. Probably some traffic anomaly.

Petaloudes, Rhodes

The first place we visited during our trip to Rhodes was Πεταλούδες - Valley of the Butterflies. It is to the west from Rhodes city and can be reached by bus in about 1 hour. As its name suggests, it is inhabited by butterflies. Bad news it that there is just one kind of butterfly ubiquitous there, but the good news is that ubiquitous means there are millions of them :-)

Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes at night, Greece

One of the reasons I wanted to be accommodated close to the medieval city was to allow me convenient way to take night photos of it. I have seen some during our preparation and wanted to get them too. That was also a reason why I packed tripod for this trip.

Arches in Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes, Greece

We had made 2nd trip to Greece in 2013. This time we picked just single island - Ρόδος. Another difference was the approach we took. We waited till the last moment, hoping for better prices on last minute holidays, because my in-laws were there in summer 2012 and they got really good price. But it seems it does not work like that in September. 5 days ahead we bought last 2 flight tickets and they were not cheaper than 2 weeks earlier.

But we did something as we usually do. We did not stay at single place, but split our stay to 2 places. One was in city Rhodes, to allow us explore west part of island and the city. And then we moved south to Faliraki to explore east and south. And such a kind of freedom is not offered by any travel agency...

I have borrowed 14-24/2.8 lens for my colleague recently. I got a chance for quick test last Saturday. I wanted to see how it feels and if it will be worth a place in my luggage for my upcoming trip. Well, I knew I will find a place for it, I just could not wait...

I went to nearby woods and to my satisfaction I found place full of blooming flowers. In hindsight, I should have tried also some "macro" photos. But at that time I wanted just to see how wide it is, how much can be in focus for normal landscape photos and so on.

Papafragas

Our last trip on Milos was to Papafragas. It is a beach with very interesting geology. It is not so far from Sarakiniko, yet it looks completely different. How many designers were designing this island and why they did not talk to each other? :-)

While yacht trip to Kleftiko was wonderful experience thanks to amazing places like Sykia and Kleftiko, it is nothing compared with what Sarakiniko can offer. If Sarakiniko was the only interesting place in Milos, it still would be worth of visiting for me.

We took a taxi to get there. It is just a few kilometers from Adamas. We also instructed taxi driver to come back for us at 9pm (hint: after sunset).

Southern part of Milos is not accessible by car. But it offers very nice attractions well worth of visiting. What to do? Just pick from many boat trips! It takes whole day and Captain will also prepare a lunch for you.

Kleftiko and Sarakiniko (next post) were main attractions why we came to Milos. And if it is the only way how to get to Kleftiko than a boat sounds like a great idea.

Plaka in Milos, Greece

Μήλος was the 3rd island we visited during our trip around Cyclades in June. We picked it from other possibilities because it offers wonderful natural sights. It is volcanic island, but completely different from Santorini. I have mentioned white houses on Santorini and Folegandros. They were here too, but most importantly and surprisingly, natural wonders are white over here too.

Angali beach, Folegandros

Beaches are probably not phenomena that attracts tourists to Folegandros. At least not most of them. Apart from some beaches around port Karavostasis all other are not very accessible. I don't mean those you need to use boat to get there, just those accessible by walking 20 minutes from bus stop or even more if you don't settle for the first one.

BTW, plural in title might suggest there will be "analysis" of many beaches, but you cannot do that in 3 days. So 2 beaches must be enough. I am sorry for that.
