Secrets’ advice on the best time to visit Rhodes and why you should consider
Rhodes on a Hot Summer Day
Rhodes not surprisingly has a Mediterranean climate with hot
summers and cold winters. The vast majority of visitors to Rhodes descend in
the summer months, especially in July and August, although this isn't really
the ideal time to visit. Daytime temperatures reach into the 30s C (90s F), and
even higher in recent years when Greece has had some scorching summer
heatwaves. The record high is 41.2 C (106.2 F).
Even at night the temperature averages 72C (22F), which is
fine when there's a cooling breeze, but not so fine when the air remains still
and sticky. You might want to make sure your accommodation has

Rhodes Weather: Best Time to Visit
Although in winter the island seldom sees a frost, the
temperature can drop to the low 40s (5-6 C) and rain can fall any time between
October and March. Unless you do simply want to lie on the beach beneath a
blazing sun, the best times to visit are usually from April to June, and again
from September to about the end of October.
In May and September you are almost guaranteed at least 11
hours of sunshine per day, more in July and August, and in those two months
there will probably be no more than a sprinkling of rain.
Late October is when the tourist season is starting to wind
down, and some hotels and restaurants will close for a winter break. The
traditional starting time is around Easter. Rhodes can be visited
all-year-round, though, as not everywhere closes down. You’ll have plenty of
choice of where to stay and eat in Rhodes Town.

Rhodes is a big-sized island of about 1,400 sq kms (541 sq
miles) and the climate isn’t the same everywhere. The south-east of the island
is warmer on average, and particularly around Lindos. It’s so warm here, in
fact, that it’s one of the warmest places in Greece, even warmer than places
further south and closer to Africa.
