We are visiting Milos late July and are considering bringing with us our packrafts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packraft) to explore the island from the water-side. These boats are typically more suited for rivers, and are a bit vulnerable to strong winds (not as in easily turning over, but as in drifting with the wind).
Since Milos has a bit of a horseshoe shape, we thought it may still work well within the lagune of the island, or perhaps to just bring the boats to a beach like Sarakiniko and explore the nearby area, at least if the wind is not blowing away from the shore.
Anyone see any flaws with this plan? Is there a lot of motorized boat traffic around the island, making it unpleasant to be a paddler, for example? Are the winds unpredictable? Big waves this time of year?
