In fact, Kos and particularly with from the point of view of the climate: its climate is considered among the best in the Mediterranean, along with Rhodes and Crete. The winters are mild and summers are, thanks to North-westerly winds that blow during the summer months (the “meltemia”, twenty etes), they are long and not too hot.
