Rhodes weather reviews

Maria, May 2023
In Rhodes I got a lot of sun, fresh breeze and cool sea. I spent little time on the beach, but I took walks around the area in moderate temperatures of 20°C - 24°C. The sun shone, but did not burn. Of course, you can’t walk around in a chiffon dress in the evening, 16°C means spring in spring. There was absolutely no precipitation or humidity, it was easy to breathe. I was completely immersed in the atmosphere of the island at such a wonderful time.

We went to Greece in May. The weather at this time is usually stable, precipitation is extremely rare, and if it does occur, it is short-lived. The air warms up to +23-25°C during the daytime. It is better to choose the end of the month for your trip; the temperature at night rises by several degrees, and accordingly, sea water is already considered less attractive for swimming. If at the beginning of May the water in the Mediterranean Sea, which is considered warmer than the Aegean, is +19-20°C, then at the end it is +22-24°C.
Lika, May 2023
I went to Greece not only for the beach and sea, but first of all to see the country, nature, and sights. In May, prices for tours are not yet very high, because... At this time, the tourist season is just beginning here. During the day it’s already very warm: 22-25 degrees, at night it’s not hot, but the temperature is also below 20. The water is warm, also about 20 degrees, you can even swim in the evening if you’re not a cold person.
