Program of the sailing cruise in Milos and Poliegos:

  • Meeting point at 08:45am the port of Adamantas, where you will meet the crew and board a comfortable sailing boat
  • We will start sailing along the east coast of the bay, heading north-west towards Cape Vani: this impressive 30-meter high rock, which marks the western entrance to the bay, was the site of one of the first mineral mines on Milos.
  • After seeing the old 19th century mines quay, we will have our first stop to swim at the bay of Kalogries (or Nun’s Beach) in crystal clear turquoise waters, perfect for snorkeling.
  • Once back on board, we set sail for Sykia, one of the largest and most impressive caves on Milos. At the spectacular entrance to the cave we stop to admire and photograph the colorful rocks and crystal clear emerald waters.
  • Finally we reach Kleftiko caves, a must-visit for the perfect blue water and unique coastline. The cluster of naturally eroded white volcanic cliffs, rocks and caves which make up Kelftiko do provide the perfect setting for swimming and relaxation. If you’ve been wanting to get that perfect photo of you diving off the side of a boat, there is probably no better place in the world!
  • Meanwhile, refreshments and cold beers await you on board, followed by delicious snacks. Then we’ll head to Gerakas Bay, one of the best beaches on Milos, accessible only by boat. We’ll stop for about an hour for swimming, snorkeling and lunch.
  • Next stop is Poliegos, the largest uninhabited island in Greece. Here we stop at the beach of Galazia Nera: the transparency and almost fluorescent color of the sea is hard to describe in words! Take advantage of the stop to go swimming and snorkeling, and a delicious dessert will be waiting for you when you come back on board.
  • Heading back to Adamantas, our next stop is Glaronisia, a group of uninhabited islands off the northern coast of Milos, also known as the “Seagull Islands”, formed by hexagonal lava rocks which create a unique landscape. We will have a stop here for some photo opportunities and to admire the seagulls, the main fauna of these islands.
  • On the way back to the port of Adamantas we pass the famous bear shaped rocks of Arkoudes and Klima, the capital of ancient Milos.
  • The return to the port of Adamantas is scheduled at 6:30pm.

To know more about your boat trip...

The Catacombs of Milos, on the island of Milos, are considered the most important early Christian worship monument in the whole of Greece. It is one of the 3 most important catacombs of the 74 discoveries worldwide, along with the catacombs of Rome and the Holy Land. It is possible that the Catacombs of Milos are also older than those of Rome. The Catacombs are located near the modern settlement of Trypiti, near the site of the agora of the ancient city of Milos and 200 mt east of the ancient theatre. The name Trypiti (which in Greek means “made with holes”) comes from the fact that the surrounding area is full of caves dug into porous volcanic rock, which are still used by the inhabitants as warehouses and stables. In ancient times, however, these caves were used as family burial chambers and then also as a place of worship and refuge after the persecution of the Romans spread.

      Very professional staff, appreciated the hard work to make us feel at ease despite the strange Covid period. Good food and drinks and relaxing music. What I liked the most was the stop in Sykia: loved the cave, crystal clear sea!!! Well done!
