Like Santorini, the island of Milos belongs to the Aegean Volcanic Arc. Its volcano last erupted 90,000 years ago and left fascinating rock formations. Located on the southwest side of the island is a magical place and it’s only accessible by sea.
As the sun rose we sailed past Milo’s immense natural harbor, aquamarine waters, giant russet rocks and yellow streaked fjords. When we arrived at Kleftiko I simply could not believe my eyes. Kleftiko is a unique volcanic area with remarkable cathedral-like caves, hidden coves, impressive rock formations and crystal-clear water. For a thousand years this was a pirate hideout. These days our wonderful captain let us play like pirates. Our charter had all the right toys for a day of adventure. We spent the afternoon exploring the caves on kayaks and Seabobs.The water around Kleftiko is remarkably clear. It is the perfect location for swimming and snorkeling. The crew prepared a delicious lunch. After a short dance and other shenanigans break we were back in the water. Simply could not get enough of this place. This remarkable destination was an unforgettable experience and one of the highlights of our trip. This is the reason so many visitors flood the shores of Greece.
