Kleftiko Beach was one of the beaches we experienced while on the Polico Sailing Cruise. The waters are crystal clear, and invigorating mid May but so worth swimming and snorkeling. We had the beach to ourselves and it was such a beautiful and relaxing way to spend some time during a day of sailing.

Incredible breathtaking aqua blue swimming ❤️
We rented a boat and our family explored this stunning nature of Greece. This is a must visit by an organized or rented boat. I can see why many yachts anchor for the day.

First of all, it is possible to walk to the beach. I'm a 46 year old asthmatic women who walked down in 40 min and up in 40 min in the heat (slow pace). You can't wear sandals, but you don't need hikingshoes. Sneakers are ok. The walk is beautiful! The reason they say you can only reach this place by boat is because the rental cars are not covered on the road leading to the beach. If you go in the dry season you can go, if you go easy and the road is not destroyed by winter rain. We went with a smal Fiat and survived ( however we are Norwegians and NOT spoiled with good roads. If you are only used to paved roads - take a boat!!!). We went from Ag. Marina towards Ag. Ioannis and took the bumpy road towards Kleftiko. You will not see a sign on the road where you should park, we saw another car and sort of understood. Somebody have tried to put up something to mark the place (see the picture). The path itself is however very easy to see and follow. When we went back to the city, we decided to continue the graveled road towards Xylokeratia and Psathadika. The road towards Xylokeratia is the worst on the whole trip and I wouldn't recommend it unless you have another type of car or 4WD (or my husband as a driver ha ha!). That was to and forth Kleftiko.
Secondly, the place itself is b e a u t i f u l and worth the trip, of course. However it is crowded - really crowded, and we were there in the end of June. I can only imagine how it is in July and August... And the tens and tens of sailboats bringing people back and forth are bringing people into the caves and next to the shore in small rib-boats in high speed. Some even play load music. Some even yelled at us, when we were snorkeling close to the cliffs in the water, and told us to get away because they wanted to go there with their boat. Oh well, we didn't let that bother us. The place is so nice and fun to swim in. There are caves and places you can swim through the cliffs. Great fun!
Thirdly, remember to bring more to drink than you think you need. It is difficult to find shadow and you'll need plenty of water (also for the hike back to the car).

Many people, especially the boat owners will tell you that it is not possible to walk to Kleftiko. It is not true. All you need is a car, better 4x4 to get to the west side of the island and good health condition to walk 1 h each direction. We were wearing simple sports shoes. We got there just before the boats were arriving and had Kleftiko only for us for 20 minutes! It was amazing! The path is well marked with white stones, it starts where there is a pole for a sign (sign is gone). It finishes on a flat stone and it's easy to get into water. Better wear water shoes and take your snorkeling mask with you. The path is well marked in the geo walks map of Milos. Enjoy! If you search Milos forum, you will also find the itinerary.

The only way to actually reach this "beach" (swim) is to take a boat. Hundreds of captains are lined up along the port in Adamas to take you to all the sights that are hard to reach through any other means of transportation. Unfortunately, when we went there, the trip was a bit rough due to winds but once we reach Kleftiko, the winds seized and the water was still, it looked like glass. Rocks jut out of the water, forming caves and tunnels that you can swim through. The water is an electric blue that is so clear that if feels like you are in a dream. Inside the caves/tunnels, the water turns various shades of blues and blue-greens. Even if you don't swim, the place itself is very picturesque.
Whether you are old, young, or a child, you will love this place.
It's definitely worth it. The boat ride also takes you to various other beaches and locations that you can see without a boat. This was all for a small price of 30 euros per person (on the boat I went on). We saw and went to more than 15 beaches and places, and we went to a nearby island called Kimolos.

Accessible only by a boat tour. If you go to Milos you should give yourself the chance to go a day trip on a boat, otherwise it's like you haven't seen anything. The water of the sea is amazing I was mesmerised by this place!!! You owe it to yourself to go there!

After doing some online research, I found out a way to hike to Kleftiko beach.
So it is NOT only accessible by boat.
I recommend ATV, not a car because of the road conditions.
The hike took around 1h to go and same for return. It was magical!
Such a good reward after the hike!!

A little prelude: When we were planning our Greece itinerary, that was when we stumbled upon Milos. Since we didn’t have too many days with us, we had to skip Mykonos and head Milos instead, a move we will never regret.

The Kleftikos is the most popular destination within Milos. It has been projected that you have to take a boat to reach the place as there are no motorable or walkable routes. So we took a full day group tour on a boat consisting of 12 people (per person cost Euro 50, which also included food, drinks, fruits & snacks), including a crew of two. The boat left from the port of Adamas on a choppy sea and enroute we saw a few fishing villages, the rock formation which looks rabbit from side and bear from the other, stopped at couple of places, before reaching the Kleftikos.
The drama begins much before the main attraction as you will sail past white rocky walls naturally crafted over the ages. Till the time you are at the main rock formations of Kleftokos, you might well be awestruck by the grandeur and gorgeousness of the place. The entire Kleftikos area is mystic, they have a history of pirates with several caves around & where the water (literally) shines because of the presence of phosphorous with huge rock formations coming out of nowhere. Add to the drama and beauty is the pristine clear & blue sea. The crew will generally take you inside the caves on a small motor powered boat and at times almost have to lay low to avoid a bump on the head.

Tip: Without doubt. if you are at Milos, make sure you visit Kleftikos but yes, pop in a medicine if you have sea sickness, particularly if its windy

The view, panorama is great, really beautiful, the water was very clear , but it's actually like that also on other Milos beaches...the caves were small nothing great, snorkelling there was very disappointing as there is not so much sea life. They will charge you 50 euro To go there and I don't think it's worth it. We went with Polco cruises ( they have 3 ships) , our captain nicos was old and grumpy man, he was yelling in Greece to the young sailor all the time. He was talking in Greek all the time with the other Greek tourists who were in board with us, basically he just talked to us in English when we were on dock to convince us to go with them. He told us that we would have free drinks during our boat trip and free food and we did: a spaghetti with some tomato sauce( small portion, we were still hungry after that very bad cooked ) , plus he was drinking beer all the time but he was never offering some to the guests...we had to ask for them. Be careful and do not go when it's very windy as everybody on our boat felt very sick! This type of ship would sail anyway to make money! The boat was tiny so it was even worst for us! I went on other boat trip before and this one was the worst ever. For 50€ is not worth it ! Rent a good 4x4 and visit the beaches on the island and have nice food in a restaurant :) or if you want to go don't Go with captain Nicos and his son (they are almost at The beginning of The dock ) and go with a big boat! I hope my review will
Help you!
