From Tripiti you descend to Klima, a small settlement that is famous for its typical fishermen’s houses (sirmata). These are located right on the waterfront and at ground level they consist of a boatshed, whilst there is a living area above. Klima is in fact right at the entrance to the Ormos Milou, the Bay of Milos. To the left lies the sheltered bay whilst to the right there is direct access to the open sea. I have always found the atmosphere in Klima a little exciting. You really feel the closeness of the water and when the stiff wind from the open sea blows in your face, it becomes clear that this village is a kind of outpost. Just as if it had dared to stick its nose out beyond the protection of the bay but no further.
