Samos Island has a prevailing north wind which blows almost constantly in the summer months keeping the island cool and providing good windsurfing conditions. Southerly winds, which carry most of the clouds and rain to the area blow mostly in the winter. The best wind is between May and August.

There are conditions to suit both wave riders and beginners and swell in the area around Kokkari can reach two metres. Samos boasts long, pebbly beaches, citrus groves and several vineyards. It is famous also for it wines.
