Tour program of Milos and Poliegos boat trip:
Meeting point at 8:45am at the port of Adamas, where you will meet the crew and board a comfortable catamaran.
We will start circumnavigating the island of Milos, heading to Cape Vani, an impressive 30 meter tall rock that marks the west entrance of the bay and famous for the ruins of an abandoned manganese mine which can be seen there.
We continue sailing until we reach Sykia, one of the biggest and most impressive caves of Milos. We will stop by the cave entrance to take some pictures and, right after, we head to a nearby bay for some swimming in one of the best points of the island. Brunch will be waiting for you on board.
Our next destination is the iconic Kleftiko: known for being an old pirates hide out, here you will find caves, grottos and underwater passages everywhere you turn with the most stunning turquoise blue water you have ever seen. Snorkelling here is an amazing experience.
We continue sailing to the south Milos until we reach our next swim stop: the impressive bay of Gerakas, one of the best beaches in Milos, accessible only by boat.
We will then reach Poliegos, the largest uninhabited Greek island. Our main stop is the area of Galazia Nera: the transparency and fluorescent color of the sea are beyond words! Here we will swim and enjoy a delicious lunch prepared freshly on board.
Our next stop is Glaronisia, a complex of uninhabited islets off the Northern shores of Milos, made up by hexagonal-shaped lava rocks. We will stop here to take some photos and to admire the unique landscape.

The first stop of the boat tour in Milos and Poliegos turns red with the visit to Cape Vani. We are located in the north-western part of Milos, Greece, and here was the entrance door to the manganese mine of the same name built overlooking the sea. Today this mine is no longer active, but it attracts many tourists both by land and by sea. The spectacle you can admire from the sea is fantastic: the rock of Cape Vani in Milos is cut vertically, with horizontal layers of black and ruby red, but also yellow and green, which contrast with the black ground and plunge into the blue sea. Of the entire mine today you can see the foundations of the structures and the loading deck on the beach: a unique and incredibly suggestive panorama that you can capture directly from the catamaran with this boat tour.
Among the things to visit in Greece, if you are in Milos, is the Cave of Sykia. This cave can only be reached by sea, so a boat tour is the perfect way to admire this very special ravine from the entrance. The cave of Sykia (or Sikia) has the characteristic of being an open-air cave: once you pass the arch, in fact, the ceiling disappears and this place becomes a small hidden chest where you can bathe and sunbathe. It is no coincidence that the Sikia cave is one of the most recommended destinations in Milos for its peaceful atmosphere.
Among the most fascinating places to see in Milos is definitely Kleftiko, the ancient pirate hideout in Greece. In fact, the countless caves and underwater passages have made Kleftiko in the past the ideal place to hide loot and escape from enemies, so much so that all of Milos is also known as “the island of pirates”. But Kleftiko is not only a magical place for the mystery that surrounds it, but also for the extraordinary beauty of its landscape of incredibly turquoise water and white cliffs and boulders that draw paths and caves, imaginative profiles and spectacular marine reflections. According to TripAdvisor’s annual ranking, in 2020 Kleftiko beach was ranked among the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Obviously Kleftiko is worth visiting with a boat tour: it is the only way to enjoy this unique rocky complex that rises from the sea.
If you are in Milos and are looking for a boat tour to visit the best beaches on the island, then this is the tour for you. The most beautiful beaches, in fact, are almost all accessible exclusively by sea, so hop on board and start discovering the most beautiful places in Milos. In addition to the spectacular bay of Kleftiko, which is mentioned among the most beautiful beaches in the world, this catamaran excursion to Milos also reaches other beautiful beaches in Greece. Sykia, for example, is a hidden cavern of paradise that can only be admired on a boat tour. Like Kleftiko, Sikia is a must-see beach that can only be reached by sea. But among the best beaches in Milos, the beach of Gerakas cannot miss a mention. Here you can relax on the white beach and snorkel in the shade of white cliffs up to 300 meters high. The water on these beaches of Milos is an enviable turquoise colour.
Poliegos is located near the island of Milos, Greece, and is the largest uninhabited island in the Aegean Sea. Like Milos and Kimolos, it is part of the volcanic area of the South Aegean, in fact its territory is covered with volcanic rocks. The beach of Galazia Nera on the island of Poliegos is one of the best places to swim: the water has a fluorescent colour and the rocks are a beautiful setting. Lunch here would be lovely, wouldn’t it? With this tour, after taking a dip and swimming in this wonderful sea, you can also enjoy a delicious typical lunch on board with a breathtaking view.
Poliegos is about 6 km from Milos. Reaching Poliegos from Milos is quite easy: with this 9 hour boat tour, you can admire the most beautiful places of the island of Milos, circumnavigating it, and also visit the beautiful and uninhabited Poliegos, without giving up anything.
Glaronisia is proof of the volcanic nature of the island of Milos in Greece. Milos, in fact, is part of the main volcanic district, together with other Greek islands, and it is precisely this that gives the island a particular geology. The archipelago of Glaronisia (or Glaronissia in italian) is characterised by this spectacular rocky complex, which originated during the thermal cooling of lava. During the boat tour of Milos you will see clearly the veins of lava, now cooled, descend along the sides of the rocks in wonderful columns. The colour of the rock here is no more a pure white, but an intense black, interspersed with orange and red veins, which recall the volcanic origin of the island.
The Arkoudes are a rocky complex that we would call sympathetic, not by chance their name comes from the Greek and means “bears”. In fact, these rocks, located off Milos in Greece, look like bears with their mouth, nose, eyes and ears. Keep your camera handy: during the boat tour in Milos and Poliegos you’ll get some amazing and even quite curious shots, like the ones in Arkoudes.
The boat tour in Milos and Poliegos has everything, even the gastronomic experience. During the excursion, you can enjoy a delicious brunch on board off Sykia Cave, one of the most majestic and impressive in Milos. Later, then, immersed in the beauty of the sea of Galazia Nera, in Poliegos, the crew will prepare a tasty typical Greek lunch on board. Choosing this boat tour you won’t have to worry about anything, just remember to bring your swimsuit, beach towel, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and a camera…enjoy your relax!
