Meltemi (North wind) very consistent in summer. Spring, winter and autumn has south wind too. Best during summer. Wind statistic from Mytilini is totally different to the one from Sigris. Mytilini is not in the wind zone. Windstatistics of Mytelini are not true for Sigri!

Short walk

Drive all the way to the west of the island to Sigri. Or by boat directly from Lavrion to Sigri Port. So for the weekend is excellent. Every Friday from Lavrion. Every Sunday night from Sigri.

Nightlife

3 cafe bars with the cheapest drinks you will ever find in a bar. Not something extreme but excellent for a beer after several hours in the water. Some nice taverns.
