The cruise starts at 9:00 am setting sail from Adamas, the port of Milos, heading northwest, towards Cape Vani, which is famous for its history. Millions of years ago, it used to be the bottom part of a caldera at the bottom of the sea. There were the manganese mines opened in 1898, the ruins of which can be seen.
Kalogries is the first protected bay after Cape Vani with crystal clear turquoise water, where you will enjoy swimming and our homemade breakfast. Then we will pass by Triades, Ammoudaraki and Ayios Ioannis some beautiful bays at the west side of Milos, till we arrive at Sykia. Sykia is a cave of unique natural beauty, the biggest one on the island. It has no roof and the sun’s rays enter the cave, illuminating its emerald waters and creating a visual feast of colors and brilliance. We will have a short stop at the entrance of the cave for some great photos before we arrive at the next swimming spot.
The sailing cruise continues and the next destination is Kleftiko, the famous old pirates’ hideout with numerous caves which is a unique place on earth. Snorkeling in crystal clear green-blue waters, exploring the elaborate caves, when you are surrounded by imposing volcanic rock formations will be definitely an unforgettable experience. On this journey we offer snorkeling gear and a go pro camera to take underwater pictures that will keep this memory alive!
Anchor up and we set sail again! Sailing the south part of the island, passing by the famous beaches of Fyriplaka and Tsigkrado, we will soon arrive at our next swimming spot one of the best on the island that is accessible only by boat; beach of Gerakas with the impressive sand slides and the transparent turquoise waters. There you will enjoy a full lunch prepared on board, a delicious BBQ meal, Greek flavors and a variety of drinks.
As we continue to our next stop, we pass by Theiorychia a historical place at the east side of the island, where we will see the oldest mining business of sulfur in Greece. Then we will approach the island of Poliegos, the largest uninhabited island in the Aegean that is included in the Natura 2000 program of the European Union with the intention of preserving the natural environment and the architectural heritage of the island. The last swimming stop will be at Galazia nera / Blue Lagoon, a bay that is like a natural swimming pool with transparent light blue waters!
