Starting from Adamantas, the first part of our trip consists of sightseeing in the bay of Adamantas. Sailing close to the east coast of the bay, we will pass the first Christian catacombs and the colourful village of Klima, where the statue of Venus de Milo was discovered. While you take beautiful photos you can also learn some historical facts and myths about the island, as a part of our guided tour. We will then reach the ‘Arkoudes’, the impressive 20ft bear-shaped rocks at the entrance of the bay to the east.
With the wind in our sails, we will reach Cape Vani. This impressive 30-meter tall rock that marks the west entrance of the bay was home to one of the first mineral mines of Milos. After seeing the old 19th-century mines quay, we will have our first 20-minute swim at the bay of Kalogries in crystal clear turquoise waters.
Following our swim and some delicious snacks we set sail for Sykia, the biggest and most impressive cave of Milos where we will spend 1 hour. We anchor in the clear green waters of a bay nearby for a swim and take our small motorboat to visit the cave.
Next stop is Kleftiko; the old pirates-lair where we will spend around two hours. This unique complex of tall limestone rocks is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world! Snorkelling here is an amazing experience. We provide you with masks, flippers and after a few tips on what you can do and let you swim and explore. You can also try Stand-Up paddling here. We will then take our dinghy and go explore the unique, diverse beauty of Kleftiko caves and take pictures. Getting back to the boat, refreshments and ice-cold beers or traditional ouzo and a delicious meal will be waiting for us.
We then will start making our way back to Adamas port, provided there is time, we will make a short 15 minute swim stop at the bay of Agios Dimitrios with a beautiful view of the Milos caldera.
