Australia’s Vogue recommends the Greek island of Milos to those who are looking for an undiscovered paradise.

Milos, which is located in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades, features more than 70 beaches ? from 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 claim to fame, the magazine noted adding that he 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.
