Open Sea International Sailing Race
Cyclades 2013 - The Islands

MILOS (Adamantas)

MilosMilos with its strange horseshoe shape, as emerges from the blue waters of the Aegean, bathed in bright light and adorned with white houses, Milos with the hospitable inhabitants, Milos with good tourist infrastructure, clean beaches and the remarkable monuments stealing the hearts of those who visit the island. In antiquity Milos flourished because of its mineral wealth. Inhabited since the Neolithic era (7000 BC) and soon prospered more than its neighboring islands thanks to obsidian, a black volcanic rock used in weapons and their tools. Adamas (or Adamantas) and the island in general, provides us with anything that will make our stay more comfortable and our holiday more enjoyable, combining relaxation and tranquility with its vibrant nightlife and entertainment. Here in Adamas, we can enjoy swimming, sunbathing or water sports on one of the two beaches. From Adamas, little excursion ships depart daily, making an island tour and stop at several beaches for swimming and eating in Kimolos (a nearby island).


SERIFOSAn island surrounded by the foam of the Aegean waters, touched by the soft winds. Serifos is one of the most picturesque Cycladic Islands, with hundreds of coves and one of the loveliest capital towns in the Aegean Sea.
Serifos Town is built on an upright rock and is located just 5 km from Livadi, the port of the island. Whitewashed houses built according to the Cycladic architectural style, windmills, narrow cobblestone alleys, all combined to create a charming image. Churches, monasteries, a Venetian castle and an indefinable aura that is connected to the inhabitants’ well being and health and which is probably due to the island’s soil that is rich in minerals.
The island has also been attached to the mythological figure of Perseas, who was washed up on the island, locked in a box. Perseas grew up on the island and from here he set out to kill the terrible Medusa, who had turned Sifnos’ king, Polydektis, into stone and the island into a barren land.

KYTHNOS (Loutra)

Kythnos - LoutraKythnos was named after its King in antiquity, who came from nearby Evia to rule the island. Other names include Afioussa, Thiramnia and Thermia. There are two main villages on Kythnos. Hora or Messaria and Dryopis (also called Horio or Syllakas).
Each one of these two villages has its own seaport. Hora's port is Loutra and Dryopis' port is Merihas. The port of Loutra is well known for its thermal healing water sources which were very reputed already from the Roman occupation period. Loutra is built by the seaside of a protected bay and is 4,5 km away from Hora. South east of Loutra lays the beautiful beach of Agia Erini near a recently discovered archaeological site. One of the biggest caves in Greece, called Katafyki, very rich in stalagmitic formations is also nearby.
The beach of Loutra bay features many cafes and taverns, where you can have a good time and take a bite of the local specialties. Finally, a short walk along the narrow streets of Loutra will let you discover locally handmade made ceramics and pottery.
