Sailing Holidays in Milos

Sailing Holidays in Milos

Milos is the southwesternmost island in the Cyclades group. The volcanic activity in ancient years has endowed this island with an exciting variety of gorgeous landscapes, consequently offering the visitor a wide range of activities.

The funny shapes of the rocks and their wonderful colors at the beautiful white sandy beaches are one expression of the volcanic features of Mílos; the economic activity is another where minerals such as obsidian, are excavated here and one of the most ancient mines in the Mediterranean is on this island.

The diving enthusiasts will find a paradise in the underwater caves in the triangle formed by Mílos, Kimolos and Polýegos islands. The island’s villages are lovely too: the stately Pláka (the island’s capital), the harbor of Adámantas, the beautiful Hivadolímni, the marvelous Emporiós with the little lagoon of Revary and the old iron mines.

Last but not least, there are local tastes offering a special gastronomic experience. Don’t miss out on watermelon pies, cream cheese pies and bonbons with white pumpkin.
