THE roofless cave
Sykia cave cave is situated on the west part of the island and can be approached only by the sea with a boat. The roof of the cave has collapsed many years ago letting the sun’s rays come through. You can get in only with a small boat from the arch entrance.
a Natural Monument
a magnificent scenery
Sykia cave or Sikia cave is located on the west part of Milos
and it is a stunning open-roof natural monument of rare beauty.
What makes Sykia cave special is that part of the roof has collapsed, creating an open round top viewing the blue sky. The cave ceiling fell down probably due to an earthquake many years ago. A natural skylight was created by the fall letting the sun illuminate all the interior of the cave and create beautiful colors.
