The North wind, called the Meltemi, blows on-shore, slightly from the right onto the sandy beaches in Maramri. The best wind seasons is May to October with the best period late June to September. The wind tends to be lighter in the morning before building for stronger afternoon conditions.
The predominant on shore wind direction makes it possible to ride the shoreline all the the way along the beach which is great fun. On strong wind days the wind creates some fun small waves to play in.
