Klima Bay Milos

Klima is a traditional Greek seaside village and a protected settlement with distinctive colourful houses known as “syrmata”, where the fishermen used to store their boats for the winter, matching their boat’s colour to their “syrma”. Its serene atmosphere will transport you back in time. 

On the other hand, it is a perfect place from which to explore the island, with a variety of places of interest nearby. Its inhabitation goes back to around 1100 B.C., when it used to flourish as the harbour of Milos. The Early Christian Catacombs are situated right above it, as well as the Ancient Theatre and the site where the Venus De Milo statue was found, which can nowadays be admired at the Louvre Museum in Paris. The famous statue of Poseidon, which now adorns the Greek National Archaeological Museum in Athens was unearthed right next door to Klima Bay.

Throughout the day nothing to do but swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing, walking along the seaside to explore the hidden spots of the village or even hiking to the sites and villages nearby.  At golden hour enjoy the magnificent sunset over the bay and why not a nice swim in the waters turn golden. Later on, star gazing in the clear unpolluted by lights night sky, how about a night swim? 

Experience the true luxury of spending the day and night by the sea under the stars barefoot in a bathing suit, no need to stress or fret, no need to wear clothes or cram your feet into uncomfortable shoes.

Sikia is a beach in a sea cave, where the ceiling sank creating a natural skylight allowing the sun rays at certain times during the day to shine on the dark beach, where it is possible to swim. It can be found in the south-west of the island and is only accessible by boat. Boat tours around the island also include Sikia or a private tour can be arranged.

Achivadolimni is a long sandy beach south of Adamantas with shallow waters. It takes its name after a small lake nearby hosting a large population of “achivades”, clams. There is bus and taxi service to the beach and is easily accessible by car.

Provatas  in the south part of the island, protected from North winds, is an amazing beach with reddish gold sand and weirdly shaped rocks, its shallow waters allowing kids to swim safely.

The Catacombs
In 2009 the Holy Synod declared Milos a sacred island, as the Catacombs are the oldest monument of Christianity. It was the first gathering place of the first Christians and the first community cemetery at the end of the 2nd AD. century. The Catacombs of Milos are unique in size throughout Greece and one of the most famous and remarkable Christian monuments in the world.

The Ancient Theatre
The Ancient Theatre was originally built by the inhabitants of the ancient city of Klima. It is one of the most well-preserved ancient theaters of the Cyclades. It’s located on the hillside between Tripiti and Klima, overlooking the bay of Milos.

Venus de Milo
The location where the statue of Venus de Milo was found is closeby to Klima and now hosts a copy of the statue, the original of which can be admired in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

Archaeological Museum
Milos Archaeological Museum is housed in a building of 1870 neoclassical design, by renowned architect Ernst Ziller. It hosts exhibits dating from the late Neolithic years to the Byzantine period. The Museum is located in Plaka.

Mining Museum
The Mining Museum is a modern museum, located in Adamas, that focuses on the geological and mineral wealth of the island and its exploitation dating from the neolithic era to nowadays, presenting also the aspects of life affected by these activities.

The archaeological site of Fylakopi , in northern Milos, is one of the most important prehistoric settlements in the Cyclades.

The Castle
The Castle in Plaka, on the top of the mountain, gives visitors a panoramic view of the island. The church of Panagia Korfiatissa in Plaka is also worth a visit for the breathtaking view.

Picturesque Villages
The picturesque traditional villages of Tripiti and Plaka, as well as the colorful Mandrakia and Firopotamos by the seaside are a great way to escape back in time and a wonderful photo opportunity.


The sea lily deserves special mention. This pretty bulbous plant, which belongs to the Amaryllis family, used to be prevalent on coastal sandy areas where dune formations were present.The Sea daffodil has many names and here in Milos, it is known as the Lily of Plathiena. Blossoming begins in late July and ends early September. The flowers are big, white and have a pleasing, exotic and very subtle lily scent.

The biggest native species on the island of Milos is the Italian cypress. In the past, this must have been widely spread throughout the island. Other conifer species include the Phoenicean juniper and the Juniperus macrocarpa appearing in the form of shrubs or small trees. Plants that grow on cliffs and hang downwards are characteristic of the island’s vegetation, such as the caper , its edible flower buds are used as a seasoning or garnish, and the fruit (caper berries), are usually consumed salted or pickled.

On the eastern side of Adamas bay, underwater hot springs and gases can be seen along certain sections of the beach, acting as further proof of the island’s active geothermal field. The hot springs with temperatures reaching 50ºC, have a very limited discharge and a highwater salinity. Down the coastal road, right before the island’s airport, Alyki salt works can be found. These are the old salt production facilities, where salt was produced through the natural evaporation of seawater, possibly assisted by the ground’s increased temperature, due to geothermic heat.

Starting out from the port of Adamas, heading north along the main road to Plaka you will see mastic, prickly burnet, Jerusalem sage, but also aromatic herbs such as thyme, savory, lavender, and Greek sage. During the rainy season when everything is green a plethora of species of herbaceous plants emerge among the phrygana, such as asphodel and sea onion. In the middle of spring a burst of scents and colors floods over Milos, while during the summer, plants fall into a sleep that helps them survive the long, dry, hot Mediterranean summer.

The black glassy rocks you see in this area are obsidian, a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed when lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly. In ancient times, obsidian was used for cutting tools and weapons, like blades and arrowheads. Well-crafted obsidian blades can be as sharp as surgical steel scalpels. Today, obsidian is used as a gem or ornamental stone.

Almost all of Western Milos (Halakas) belongs to the Natura 2000 network of protected areas dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity.  The endangered species Macrovipera Shweizeri (viper of Milos) is endemic and hibernates to wake up in spring. It is not aggressive unless disturbed.
