Most of the summer, the island of Limnos has the Meltemi wind. The main wind direction at Aliki beach is north-east. The wind usually starts in the middle of June and goes on till mid to late October. In May and the second part of October we have the south wind. During the off season (May and October), some west and east winds can occur, the west coming with a lot of gusts, as opposed to the east wind, which is quite clear, but may also blow during the high season. The north wind is mainly thermal wind in the afternoon, but, on rare occasions, may come with gusty stormy weather.
