Winter on the island is marked by a north wind called Bura. It is a dry, cool wind, so if you feel very cold on a sunny cloudless day that’s Bura.

Although it may sound scary, the locals love Bura as it brings chilly and fresh air and you should definitely experience life on an island when it is cut off from the mainland for a few days.
