SAILING AROUND MILOS
While sailing around the island of Milos you will see a unique display of colored rocks and clear waters. According to sea conditions and the size of your boat, you may choose to circumnavigate the island due North or South: the landscape is beautiful anywhere. Touring boats depart from Adamas and Pollonia, sometimes from some of the South beaches.
TIDES: Generally, in the Cyclades tides are small and rarely influenced by winds and atmospheric pressure.
VISIBILITY: It is generally very good. During the summer, at times, humidity and dust in the air may reduce visibility up to 2 miles. In some rare conditions, there is morning fog.
WINDS: Frequent winds from North. The Meltemi (NNE) blows in July and August. South winds are less frequent in summertime, but strong, over 8 Beaufort, and this explains why few boats anchor South of the Island of Milos. Northwest, Southeast and Southwest winds are less frequent. You may experience strange winds near the coastline: this is due to turbulence created by the geographical characteristic of the island.
CURRENTS: They are not strong. Check well your charts while in the Kimolos strait, with many reefs and shoals!
