Birgitta Ström and her husband Ralph have been regularly visiting Kobba Klintar since they first met in the early 80s. At that time Kobba Klintar was privately owned. They were often there and took care of the buildings when it was necessary. Rather like house gnomes. In time it became their favourite place.
“The Kobbarna are so close to Mariehamn. You can get there in ten minutes and you have the open sea on the other side. There’s something mysterious about it all. What I really love about Kobba Klintar is when it’s six in the morning and the sea is as smooth as glass. I can swim round the island then. And then just sit and look at the glassy sea.”
