Geography -Climate

The Lefka Ori (The White Mountains Range) are covered with snow from the beginning of November up to the end of May. However, snow is a very rare sight on the plains.

In April the weather is usually mild and pleasant and there is very little chance for the sunshine to suddenly vanish and for a drizzle or a slight rainfall to occur. In October it seldom rains, the weather remains pleasant and warm, therefore swimming in the sea is still a very pleasant pastime. May and September are mostly sunny and pleasantly warm but not hot. Summer, on the other hand, is hot enough and dry.

June, July and August are the hottest months of the year. They are also the driest with no rainfalls at all. On the mountainous and hilly parts of the Platanias Municipality the temperature is slightly lower, while on the southern coasts and the inland it tends to be one or two degrees higher.
