Milos. Windward sails...
By the previous night, you can also arrange your trip around the island, while you are walking on the port’s beach. If you belong in a large group of friends, you can book by yourself a sailing boat for this purpose and to enjoy it more. The captain and his assistant will ensure that this trip will be unforgettable.
The date is at 9 in the morning. Swimsuits, hats, sneakers, towels, cameras, good music and above all, cheerful mood. Everything you see, you feel, you enjoy in this trip you will remember it for a lifetime.
The yacht sails... and slowly, lazily unfolds the other beauty of the island. This which is hidden in secluded beaches with crystal waters, such as the beach of Agios Ioannis or Tsigrado, the one that is lying behind the vertical red rocks at Cape Vani. The beauty that is revealed to you at the magical “emerald cave” or “Sykia” with the opening on the roof. The one that is playing “hide and seek” behind the cliffs at Kleftiko, the formerly pirate hideout, with the beautiful sea caves and the leeward beaches with the crystal clear turquoise waters...
The surprises, of course, do not stop here, because the captain has more in his mind... "We will go to the beach for food", he commands and, of course, no one has objected. On the sandy beach overlooking the spectacular cliffs of Kleftiko, the fires burn and the soup is quickly prepared, while the octopus is slowly baked in cinder, saturating the air with their scent. Until they are ready, a dakos with tomato and Milian cheese is what you need.
You will not deny of course a snack with grilled fish. The glasses clink, filled with ouzo and local wine. The fun has
already begun. The octopus and the fish soup are vanished in a record time and a cool slice of watermelon that opens on the rock comes to complete this delicious meal that resurrecting the gods!
Depending on your mood and the time, the journey continues to the caves, to other beaches of the island or to Kimolos, the neighboring island.
During the return no one speaks. Only the music breaks the tranquility of the sea. Everybody, sweet tired, but full of images, tastes, unique experiences, is trying to enjoy this inner calm feeling. Such moments... the words are unnecessary.
