Samos Climate & Weather

Samos Climate and Weather

Sunshine is the order of every day in Samos during the summer months, but temperatures remain comfortable with the help of the 'meltemia', northern winds that cool the sun-drenched island. Rainfall is heavy, but most of the rain falls in winter. From mid-April until mid-October the weather is almost completely dry. Summer is indisputably the peak tourist season and this is when the beaches, restaurants and clubs are packed full. For those who may want to explore the island without the crowds, late spring and early autumn are also gorgeous times to visit Samos. In May the island is at its most lush after the rainy season and water temperatures are warming up; in September the seas are still as warm as in summer and the weather is pleasantly balmy, though not as hot as in summer. Accommodation is also a bit cheaper in the off-season.
