Samos is an island in the eastern Aegean sea off the coast of Turkey. It is connected by boat and high speed hydrofoil with Athens through the port of Piraeus.
The island is remarkably green and fertile; there's a lot of good wine--samiotiko-- grown on Samos. The climate is also good for olives.
The island is also known for its pebble beaches.
The traveler will experience warm summers and mild, wet winters. Samos is cooler in summer than other locations, so fruit trees do better here than much of the rest of Greece. Summer's etesian winds blow from the north from May to October, clearing the air. It's a sunny island; there are only 41 average cloudy days on Samos.
Samos can be windy and very wet in winter, but it's likely you won't plan a trip during that time anyway. The rest of the year is fine, but best between April and October.
Rains start in November in earnest and are frequent until showers taper off in April.
