The climate and terrain of Kos is ideal for agriculture, the weather is mild throughout the year, the morphology of the terrain and the plentiful supply of water creates the best conditions for the cultivation of excellent agricultural products. The production of Kos includes cereals, vegetables, fruit, grapes, tobacco and olives, while animal husbandry and beekeeping are also very significant. Palms, cypresses and gardens make the island green, and this is constantly revitalised by the number of goats and sheep which roam the hillsides. Kos was the only island of the Dodecanese with a salt mine, one of the best in the Mediterranean. Its site is now the water park.
