Meeting point at around 10:00am the port of Adamas, where you will meet the crew and board a comfortable sailing boat.
We will start sailing close to the east coast of the bay, passing by the Christian catacombs, the colorful villages of Skinopi and Klima, the capital of ancient Milos and the place where the statue of Venus de Milo was discovered. Along the way, you will then sea Cape Vani, an impressive 30-meter tall rock that was home to one of the first mineral mines in Milos.
After seeing the old 19th century mines quay, we will stop for swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Kalogries, a beautiful bay which is perfect for snorkeling.
Once back on board, enjoy some fresh fruit, cakes and refreshments as we set sail for Sykia, one of the biggest and most impressive caves of Milos, accessible only by boat.

Snacks and drinks will be waiting for you upon your return to the boat.

Among the oldest and most fascinating sites on the island of Milos, Greece, are the Catacombs of Milos. It is the most important early Christian worship monument in Greece and the third most important of the 74 catacombs discovered in the world, along with those in Rome and the Holy Land. The catacombs of Milos cover a length of 183 meters and over 2,000 Christians have been buried here. In 1840 the Catacombs of Milos were discovered and stolen by looters: a few years later the excavations officially began by a German archaeologist.
Among the peculiarities of the island of Milos, Greece, is its authenticity and history. For example, sailing around the island by boat, we will see the small and charming village of Klima. Klima is located at the foot of the cliff, where there are just over 20 houses, all whitewashed and with colourful doors. You are looking at a typical Greek fishing village, as is Skinopi. The houses have two floors: the lower one, where the boat is located, and the upper one, where the fishermen’s families live. In the distance you can also admire a beautiful Orthodox Church, a landmark of the village. If you want to take a representative picture of Milo, the view of Klima and Skinopi is definitely one of the most characteristic views of the island. And it is right on the hills between Klima and the village of Tripiti that there is the archaeological site where a farmer, in 1820, found the statue of the famous Venus of Milo. The beauty of the Venus of Milo is known throughout the world and it was born right here, on the island of Venus. The statue is currently in the Louvre Museum in France.
Kalogries Bay (or Kalogries Beach) is a wonderful place on Milos Island to swim. It is located in the north-western part of Milos Island, Greece, and here the water is crystal clear and the predominant colour is turquoise. Kalogries, in Greek, means “nuns’ beach”and, in fact, here there are still some specimens of nun seals, a rare animal present on the islands of Greece. But the bay of Kalogries is also known as “Milo’s swimming pool”, thanks to its semi-circular shape which gives it the appearance of a natural swimming pool. Here you can snorkel and swim in complete relaxation.
Southwest of the island of Milos, in the Cyclades, you can admire the beauty of the cave of Sykia (or Sikia Cave). The boat tour is the perfect way to visit this scenic beauty of Greece, in fact there is no other way to get there. The cave if Sykia is not just a cave. It is an open-air cave that gives its visitors a deep sense of peace. Once we have passed the white arch moving on our raft, in fact, the ceiling disappears and we enter a bay hidden from the world. Here, on Sykia beach, you can swim and sunbathe while some snacks await you on board.
Greece is full of mysterious and fascinating places. The island of Milos, in particular, is teeming with extraordinary destinations, such as the Kleftiko caves. It is a complex of arches and ravines carved into the white volcanic rock that stand out on a crystal clear green sea. According to legend, the caves of Kleftiko were hid by pirates to hide their boats and treasures stolen during their looting. The Kleftiko Caves are one of the most beautiful places in the world and can only be reached by sea, with a dedicated boat tour. Our sailboat will accompany you during this surreal visit among the caves of Kleftiko, where you can dive and swim admiring the most suggestive perspectives of this place.
The boat that accompanies us on the tour of Milos, Sykia and Kleftiko is a 55” sailing yacht. The yacht accommodates a maximum of 14 people to ensure maximum comfort and the best experience for visitors.
