    Agios Nikolaos | Sailboat — 10.5 m

    Amazing location for visiting, superb scenery! Anchoring is ok even if some stones on the sandy bottom create a little risk. But attention this spot is special in some conditions. We arrived there after a long trip from Peloponese, believing the 100% protection score showed here (my mistake). The Meltem was supposed to arrive during the night. When it happened (15-20 knots), the wind on the spot was super gusty (25-30 knots) and moreover super whirly... We had to leave during the night, we felt it could become dangerous as the wind was supposed to get stronger. Out on the water the Meltem was only 15-17 knots. We went to anchorage middle of the night in Kimolos (pirgonisi), easy to reach and to anchor even if Meltem was growing (20-25 knots) and we had full darkness (no moon anymore).

    Anchorage zum Mittagessen östlich der südwestlichen Ecke von Milos. Der Ort ist etwas anfällig für Wellen, aber die Küste ist mit Höhlen übersät, die von kleinen Inseln übersät sind und von einem 5 m tiefen Sandschelf umgeben sind, der einen glänzenden türkisfarbenen Ankerplatz bietet. Mit dem Beiboot erkunden. Ein paar flache Felsen halten den Ausguck wachsam.

    Really beautiful! Difficult anchorage during the day due to the presence of many charters. Sandy bottom but pay attention to chains anchor charters.

    Vraiment magnifique! Mouillage difficile en journée du fait de la présence de nombreux charters. Fond sableux mais faire attention aux chaînes des bouées d ancrage des charters.
