Discover Milos by boat
If you have only one day in Milos then this is how you should spend it!
Our star cruise covers half of the island; the inaccessible west and south side of Milos and sightseeing in the bay of Adamantas, making 4 swim stops at the best spots along the way.
The main advantage of this cruise is that it is done in a one-way direction – from the main port of Adamantas to Palaiochori on the south side covering 3 quarters of the island.
This way we save time from travelling to spend in our stops. Our return is arranged by private transfer, takes only 15 minutes and is included in the price.
A day of sightseeing, swimming, exploring the majestic Kleftiko and the cave of Sykia, sunbathing or just relaxing on the hammock listening to music and having a drink under the boat’s shaded area, this cruise will definitely be the highlight of your Milos vacation.

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 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. 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! This unique complex of white and grey rocks that form arches and caves, in combination with the crystalline emerald turquoise waters 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, let you swim and explore.
Getting back to the boat, refreshments and ice-cold beers or traditional ouzo will be waiting for you and will be followed by a delicious meal and dessert. After we eat we take our dinghy and go explore the unique, diverse beauty of Kleftiko caves and passages and take pictures.
Leaving Kleftiko we head east towards our last stop, the bay of Gerakas, considered one of the islands’ best beaches. After a short swim, we get back to the boat where fresh fruit is waiting for us before we take off.
Our cruise ends in the beautiful tranquil bay of Palaiochori around 6:30pm. From here we get back to Adamantas by private transfer, arranged by us, in just 15 minutes.

Sailing with Polco is a carefree trip. You only need to bring your personal belongings; a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, hat and glasses to protect yourself from the strong Greek sun, your cellphone/camera.
Our yachts are fully equipped with snorkelling gear but if you have your own mask and flippers you are welcome to bring them.
Early or late in the season, a light windproof jacket might help to warm you up when the sun starts dropping.
