|THE GLARONISSIA ISLETS NEAR THE ISLAND OF MILOS IN THE CYCLADES|
The Glaronissia islets lie off the coast of Milos and they are one of the big "attractions", of Milos island. These three small islands are located on the northeast side of Milos, not far from Pollonia, and they are a very special volcanic phenomenon. They were made under very great pressure and they consist of all hexagone (six-sided) tubes. From what I understand, there is only something similar to be found in Tasmania.
The water around the Glaronissia islets had a beautiful turquoise color. The islets are (obviously) not inhabited by humans, and only the seagulls have their home here. They gave the island its name (Glaronissia means seagull). Glaronissia was the first place where we made a swim in the sea during our private boat trip along the coast of Milos and around Polyaigos island.
If you sail on from the Glaronissia islets towards Polyaigos island you will pass along another rock (which you can see well from the village of Pollonia) with the same kind of hexagone tubes.
