The Russians based their fleet here during the Napoleonic wars, in the days before half the harbour in the centre of town was turned in to a marina. Which was probably the most excitement the place has seen.
Described in one review as a great place to relax on account of there being nothing to do, even websites promoting Milna seem to struggle to find much to say about it.
There are four beaches within walking distance, including one for naturists. A good range of shops from the functional to the touristy stretch around the harbour. One commentator who said there were “few good restaurants” I think meant to say “quite a few” – I’ve certainly never had a problem getting quite adequate refreshment.
So don’t be put off by the lack of “sights” – this is a laid back holiday town where you can pull up a chair and watch the world go by.
