Another highlight of the trip was seeing the coastline by boat, as some of the island’s most impressive natural areas are inaccessible by car or foot. While some preferred to join a public boat tour, I opted for renting a private boat for the day. First stop was Sykia sea cave in the west, which has an almost round shape “hole” in the roof that allows sun rays to reach its sequestered beach. The water within the wave has a beautiful transparent green-blue color. After that, the spectacular Kleftiko cave in the south was my second and the longest stop. This iconic patch of coastline exemplifies everything I love about Greek islands: clear, turquoise water, white cliffs, intriguing rock formations. I spent a good couple of hours here snorkeling, having lunch, driving through tunnels, exploring caves and enjoying the breeze from the sea.
Milos is a true paradise for anyone that love food, culture, beaches, caves and cliffs. The definite conclusion I made after the trip was that three days are not enough for exploring Milos and I need to go back as soon as possible.
