- May / June ... Easily warm enough to swim in the pool, most restaurants now open, warming up now
- October ... Very warm days, warm evenings - swimming in the sea still pleasant
- October ... End of Season festivities in Kas - Fireworks, Parties, general Mayhem - well worth the visit!
- November ... Warm days, chilly evenings but great for a quiet break
