Fishing Fishing

Milos, due to its volcanic geology, is an extremely rich “ fishing spot”. The shallows, the caves and its rocky shores are natural habitants for a big variety of fishes. Fishing on a boat or from ashore, and underwater fishing in the Melian waters will surely be a unique joyful experience.

The island, just like every Cycladic island, is the perfect place for fishing. You can either go underwater fishing or go fishing with nets, trawl-lines, fishing with trolling, angling or fishing with fishing-rods. The fishes vary depending on the season and the place, whereas the rest of the Melian fauna is extremely rich including many fish species (red mullets, pandoras, dorados, sargos, saddled breams, black breams, tunnies) and even octopuses, squids, cuttlefish, lobsters.

Below we suggest a tour to places ideal for fishing:

In Akradies located in the north side of the island there are beautiful caves and shoals, but the waters there are deep and abrupt and that’s why those who decide to go spearfishing there have to be very experienced fishermen. In these islets apart from blackfish and sargos you can also find rays, lychees and lobsters.

In the Capes of Lakida and Spilas and in Filoti : There are many shoals and traganas where plenty of fish gather. Facing Filoti there are Glaronisia, which are small barren islands perfect for spearfishing and for fishing with nets.

In Polonia: On the open sea from Polonia and heading towards Kimolos there are plenty of shoals in relatively minor depths, many of which are located in 10 or 15 meters below sea level. The area is full of caves and slabs with a lot of blackfish, scaros, sargos and lychees.

In Adamantas, thanks to its shallow and clear waters, you can go fishing very often using different techniques and the place is perfect for amateurs in spearfishing and for those who like fishing with flying-lines.

In Antimilos or Erimomilos, which is a cone-shaped barren islet around which the waters are dark and very deep: 100 meters from the shore, the water depth is 200-220 fathoms deep. But the shores are not vertical in depth and thus there are depths of 10-20meters accessible to those who go spearfishing. This is usually the case passing the 20 meters in depth, the depth increases continually in an angle of approximately 45 degrees.

In entire Antimilos there are countless of dry caves, slabs, traganas and trokadas and a lot of fish species such as blackfish, sargos, lobsters, lychees, rays, tunas, octopuses, red mullets, pandoras, cods and much more.
