8 hours Kleftiko Sykia Polyaigos Kimolos
Starting from the marina of Pollwnia and heading south, we enter the strait between Milos and Kimolos island.
WE WELCOME YOU ABOARD!
Your Milos Island Tour will commence from either the beautiful beach of Agia Kyriaki or from the Port of PolIonia depending on weather conditions.
From either place, we will sail across the southern side of Milos where we will visit Polvaigos and the last port of call will be Kimolos before we return home to Milos.
You will experience the beauty of a unique multifaceted island which boasts
amazing crystal waters, unique colours of aged old rock
and the fun of visiting inside caves.
Our first stop will be at Gerakas, which is a beach which can only be visited by boat,
but has its own beauty with plenty of white sand and what makes this unique is the huge “sand slides”, which lead up to the famous volcano known as Agia Kiriaki
If you look carefully, you will notice caves along the beach. One needs to be careful, as sometimes you can see steam emanating from them, which could scald you. However, these caves have beautiful rock formations with their own set of distinctive colours. As a result of the steam the waters here are usually warmer than the others
Our next stop at Tsigrado, with its huge white “sand slides” and crystal blue waters.
This is a small, almost like a “private beach” that is accessible either by land or by boat. The fun part of this beach, if you choose access by land, is that you have to negotiate the huge white “sand slides” and with the help of a rope, you can slowly climb down until you reach its sparkling little beach with deep blue turquoise waters.
We will then sail onto Kleftiko, which will be the highlight of your trip
Upon arrival at Kleftiko we drop anchor for a while where you can enjoy a swim and take photos.
This specific area is surrounded by beautifully formed rocks, and you will find small caves which you can enjoy swimming in and out of. We invite you to take a close look over the side of the boat, where you will be able to have a completely transparent view of the bottom of the ocean. The blend of colour at Kleftiko poses a lifelong memory as you will find a unique peace brought about by the serenity and the different colour combinations of water and rocks at Klefitko.
After packing up at Kleftiko, we will sail onto Sykia where you will experience another magical experience. The cave mouth at Sykia is big enough to allow the boat to enter the cave. This is another enchanting part of our trip as you will see different rock materialisations, colours and a completely different colour in the waters.
This is an “open air” cave, and therefore these waters are filtered by the sun which illuminates the emerald-coloured waters found inside the cave. This experience allows you to take a few more photos, have another swim and once again see a variety of strikingly blended colours.
At the most southern-eastern tip of the island, are the famous Blue Waters, that need no justification. A single dip in the flawless turquoise waters, with their white sand bottom, can rejuvenate anyone who enters these waters.
There is no doubt, these are the most refreshing, stunning waters of the Cycladic islands.
Sailing on we reach two small beaches; each with its own uniqueness.
Pano Myrsini, (higher) beach is a shallow beach with sparkling white sand that looks like it’s made up of thousands of tiny diamonds, complimented by clear and enlightening sea floor.
By comparison, Kato Myrsini, (lower) is a strip of white sand that idly lies in front of some old no longer used fields.
PSATHI – KIMOLOS
The boat will sail on towards the island of Kimilos. We will pause at the main port of Psathi which is on the south-eastern tip of this small island. Around the port area you will find hotels, rooms to rent, cafes, taverns, and a small beach. Although this is a very small island, there is a delightful little village where the locals live.
GOUPA KARA – KIMOLOS
We move on to the picturesque seaside village of Goupa Kara which is also found on the south-eastern side of Kimolos.
One of the most famous sights of Kimolos is the “syrmata” (boat garages) in the small fishing village of Goupa. These boat garages have been carved into the rocks and the boats are secured behind an array of multicoloured wooden doors. The ‘syrmata” are used mainly during the winter months.
We then sail on as the sun slowly sinks behind the hills to Milos where we will throw down our anchor and disembark.
