Milos is a volcanic Greek island in the Aegean Sea, just north of the Sea of Crete. The island is famous for the statue of Aphrodite (the “Venus de Milo”, now in the Louvre), for the statues of the Greek god Asclepius (now in the British Museum) and the Poseidon and an archaic Apollo in Athens.
Milos is also very famous for its dent elated coastline. With more than 75 small and big beaches of crystal, deep blue waters, multi-colored carved rocks and white-yellow coasts, it is certain that you will be impressed. Due to the volcanic origin of its ground, Milos presents an impressive coastal morphology and diversity. There are white-yellow beaches, bays with pebbles surrounded by stones, and white, red, yellow or black rocks.
Milos, steals the hearts of all those who come to visit …and now will steal yours!
Day Cruise of Milos with “St Nicholas” Sailing Yacht
Starting from the picturesque village of Pollonia at the north side of the island, “St Nicholas” will sail towards the west and soon will reach the “Blue Waters” location in Polyegos island.
A top yachting destination with crystal turquoise waters and astonishing geological formations.
Next stop will be the Sulphur Mines. The ghost town of Milos, where the landscape changes from white in Polyegos to red and yellow. The Sulphur factory poses for some unique pictures. This is the only tour that stops for swimming in this location.
Gerakas is the next breath taking location of this trip. White thin sand and crystal clear waters do not allow you to come out of the sea, but you must because Kleftiko is next. The landmark of Milos, a sculpture of the sea and wind the famous pirate hideout. Whatever you have read or heard about Kleftiko is not enough, but to witness it. The stop allows time for snorkeling in the wide complex of caves and passages.
St Nicholas then will start sailing the east coast of Milos, passing by the Cave of Sykia, reaching the North East corner of the island – Cape Vani, location of old manganese mines and now the colors are back to red and black! Opposite to Cape Vani we will witness the “Bear” formation, guardian of the entrance of the port of Milos.
Sailing by the north coast, with a final stop for a memorable snorkeling experience by the rocks of Glaronisia. Volcanic basalt rods emerge from the sea, demonstrating another very interesting geological phenomena. With the sun on out back probably starting to set in the sea, we return to the port of Pollonia.
