Full description
The cruise begins at 15:00, leaving Adamas port. While cruising through the gulf, you will learn about the history, geology, and culture of Milos from the guide and have a closer look at the bizarre landforms called by the locals ‘Arkoudes’, a greek word for "bears", as they resemble standing bears. Continuing in the northern side of Milos, you will have the chance of getting panoramic views of the impressive "lunar" landscape between Mandrakia and Sarakiniko. It is a landscape of incomparable beauty, which does not match any other earthly formation. As the engine slows down, you are reaching the small islets of Glaronisia. These steep cliffs, formed of lava emerging out of the sea, host impressive geological structures with geometric fractures developed during the quenching of the lava. You will continue your cruise between the village of Pollonia and the nearby island of Kimolos, before witnessing the largest uninhabited island of the Aegean spreading its vivid colorations in front of your eyes. You will see the magnificent interplay between the waters and the sunlight, finding its way from the collapsed rooftop of Fanara cave and then enjoy your first stop at Faros. There you can enjoy the shallow clear waters and relax at the small beach, or if you feel more adventurous, follow a guided 30-minute hike to the lighthouse and be rewarded with wide angle panoramic view. Back in the boat, platters of fresh fruit will provide you the necessary vitamin recharge. Your next swimming destination, located at the southern part of Polyaigos, is the well-known Galazia Nera. A unique scenery of contrasting turquoise, transparent waters, and whitish volcanic cliffs, offers an unparalleled relaxing experience. You will have the chance to explore spectacular underwater spots by participating in a guided snorkeling tour, led by two experienced divers - crew members, and depict your experience with GoPro9 underwater photographs. Tasting traditional Milos snacks and cold refreshments or a beer make the ideal closing of this stop. On the way back, you will enjoy the magnificent Aegean sunset accompanied by a homemade desert in Cape Trachylas, before the boat’s arrival in front of the picturesque fishermen village of Klima, allowing you to get panoramic views and photographs of the characteristic Cycladic architecture. With the highest hopes that you had a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the boat full of smiles will return to Adamas at around 20:00.
