In August, meltemia (very strong northern winds), refresh the atmosphere and cause significant turbulence in the sea.

Limestone rocks, caves and steep rocky slopes rising above the sea form the main habitat of the Mediterranean monk seal. Various types of soil are also encountered here. Fresh water is generally limited to the area.
