Averages for Kos in June


Beginning in June, tourists should at least be aware of the north wind, also called etesian or Meltemi, which blows consistently until August. Not usually, but sometimes these winds can become almost gale force, causing wind damage and possible human casualty if not taken seriously. At night, these winds tend to calm down from their daytime extremes.

The average June temperature is 73.9°F (23.3°C).

The average low temperature is 66.9°F (19.4°C) at night, while the average high temperature is 81°F (27.2°C).

The average sea temperature is 72°F (22°C). Lots of surfing, swimming and scuba diving will be taking place this month. Although not every day, the waves do get quite large some days. For tourists with small children, this can be seen as a disadvantage because the sea is off limits; however, the hotel pools are always available. Tourists who love adventure, on the other hand, will love the huge surf.

There is an average of 0.12” (3 mm) of precipitation. There is an average of 1 day of precipitation.

There is an average of 10.7 hours of sunlight.

Kos, Greece has established itself as a party island in large part to its “Bar Street,” a mile of bars, discos and clubs dedicated to luring in tourists who are looking for a party. Popular with Dutch visitors, for example, is the Eet Cafe De Haven. Another popular bar is called, simply, West.

A great place to stay is the Argyri Aparthotel. It is near Ta Adelfia, a restaurant that treats guests like family, serving them large portions at very low prices. Also, Downtown is a bar which plays oldies but goodies, while Status is a hip, happening club in the area. All are welcome, but young couples and groups of friends especially like the hotel.

Second floor apartments offer views over the pool.

To get out for a day, the “booze cruises” are well worth the money. Other highly recommended restaurants in the area include Captain’s and Pepperoin’s, which is right on the beach. Tasty Corner is one that is open very late.

Another resort area is Jack’s I and II. These are located right next door to one another. Jack’s I has a pool, but Jack’s II guests are welcome to use it. Although the hotel is not ideal for those looking for luxurious spa treatments and the like, it does have large, clean rooms and beautiful sea views from the higher rooms with balconies. Some balconies also include views of the mountains and olive groves to the side of the hotel.

All former guests say that for the price, the food and drink at Jack’s I and II can’t be beaten anywhere. Other small things, such as kind, friendly owners and staff as well as a small library on the first floor of Jack’s II, make this hotel an excellent choice for those who are looking for a base from which they will enjoy their vacation.
