Other Site Characteristics

This site comprises the coastal zone of the western Milos island, from the port, Adamas, up to the westernmost side of the island. On the north and south coast there are a few sand beaches. Apart from these beaches the rest of the shores of the site is steep cliffs, and there are hardly any other sandy seashores. Geologically, the island had been an active volcano till the middle of Quaternary. It consists of Plio-Pleistocene volcanic rocks and there is also a small area with Pliocene limestones. On the north coast of the area there are Cymodocea beds, while Posidonian beds exist throughout the entire marine part of the site.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is characterized by variety and abundance including shallow waters with Posidonia beds and Cymnodocea beds on rocky surfaces. The accurate estimation of the Monachus monachus population is a very difficult task, due to the rarity and peculiar species' ecology and behaviour. Such an estimation can be achieved, at least for the actual conditions in Greece by means of the identification of all individuals of the monk seals. At present, only the assessment of the population has been made for the greater area covering Milos, Antimilos, Kimolos and Polyaigos islands, taking into consideration that monk seals can move widely in all the area of the island complex (25-40 individuals of varying ages, data of 1999). On the basis of an on going monk seal project for the site area, the population is estimated to 1-5 individuals. The appropriate submerged sea caves, offering shelter for the monk seals, are resting habitats for the species and in one case a cave is used during the pup and lactation period.
