Sarakiniko Shipwreck

Sarakiniko Shipwreck

This is a not very popular attraction and there are no signs and you can easily miss it if you don`t know about it. It is very close to Sarakiniko and accessible on foot. You have have to follow the white rocks east of Sarakiniko, walking close to the sea (actually, above the sea). You will see the two parts of the ship sticking out of the sea near the rocky coast.

The wrecked pieces belong to the tanker Africa which crashed into the rocks during a storm in 2003. Soon after the crash the ship broke into two pieces which sunk but parts of them protrude above the water level. The locals decided to leave the ship as a tourist attraction and an unusual snorkeling spot.

highlights: a wrecked ship and snorkleing spot, historic sight in Milos, Cyclades Islands, Greece
