To rent a car or not?

Hello,

For six days in august, I will be staying walking distance to Milos Beach, in what is a "pedestrian zone," so no free parking, and it seems from other threads that overnight street parking is not feasible, which is a shame because some of the local car rentals have pretty reasonable prices.

I would like to venture around the island for at least a few of those days, so I'm debating whether a car is worth the hassle or money compared to whatever buses, boats, taxis, etc might be available.

Thanks for any advice. Sorry for the broad topic!

Hi Jacob! I'm not sure which Milos Beach you mean, is it the Milos Beach club at Agianni, or the real Milos beach near Agios Nikitas? I think it would be the latter, because Agios Nikitas village is pedestrianised. In this case, parking in and around the village is exceptionally difficult in August, so I don't recommend having a car there if you can avoid it.

On the other hand I would strongly recommend renting a car at least for a couple of days,as public transport from the village is limited. One option might be to rent a car just for one day at a time, then you can drop it back at the car hire office at the end of the day and not have to worry about parking. On other days you could use taxis and buses to give you a few options.

I would say that, whichever Milos Beach you are talking about, it is an absolute must to hire a car. There is so much of the island that can be explored, that can only be accessed by car, e.g. down to Porto Ksatsiki, Down to the lighthouse at the southern tip of the island, high up into the centre, to the Rahi Waterfalls, the spectacular views and many,many more. Lefkada can only really be fully appreciated, if the whole island is explored. I would suggest at least 3 days car hire.
