arkoudes / milos

The rocky animal place

The bear cliff

Arkoudes it’s the plural word for the word bear (the animal). Arkoudes are a group of rocky islets located off the coast of Milos, near Plathiena beach, on the northern part of the island. 

The rocks appear to show an opening mouth, a nose, eyes, ears and a body that look rather like bears, hence their name. They also say that if you see from a different angle it looks like a rabbit too! Arkoudes rocks are about 20 feet high (closer to the size of a bear) and they are abrupt and sharp.You can only see them by boat as they are not accessible to walk there.
