; one of the best snorkeling points of the island. Brunch will be served when you come up from your swim.
Next destination, Kleftiko, the most famous place in Milos
. The name actually means a place of thieves and derives from the fact that it was used for centuries by pirates as a hideout and lair. Apart from its’ pirate history, this unique combination of white and grey rocks creates one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Snorkelling here is an amazing experience complete with underwater passages, caves and unsurpassed water clarity.

Our main stop in this amazing island is the area of Galazia nera, or blue waters
. The transparency and fluorescent colour of the sea are beyond words making this one of the best beaches in the whole of Greece! Here we will enjoy our swim and a delicious lunch prepared freshly on board.
