SPRING – March, April, May
Spring on the island is very pleasant. March will have cooler temperatures, but nothing crazy! You’ll definitely want a warm cardigan
and a pair of jeans
, but don’t count out bringing a pair of shorts as you get into late Spring. The island will be starting to fill up, but it won’t be at max capacity. Spring is a great time to visit!
You’ll see temperatures around the high 50 degrees Fahrenheit in March, but those will rapidly increase to the 70s by the time May rolls around.
SUMMER – June, July, August
Summertime is peak season in Santorini because of the beautiful weather, but that means you’ll also encounter more crowds. You’ll want to be spending most of your time lounging by the pool or down at the beach. Bring your swimsuit, a nice cover-up, and a sun hat.
Santorini’s highest temperatures are during these months. Expect mid 80’s Fahrenheit with an occasional heatwave to pass through and bring temps to the 90s.
FALL – September, October, November
September still has very warm weather, and October can be pleasant enough to keep swimming in the sea or pool. For most businesses, October is the last fully operational month. By November, temperatures start to drop, so if you’re visiting during this time, you can still pack your swimsuit and some shorts, but I would also pack a few warmer items like a windbreaker or denim jacket
September and October can still have days with temps in the 70s, but November will see the 60s and maybe even the 50s.
WINTER – December, January, February
Winter is low season in Santorini with most hotels, restaurants, and other businesses closed. This just really isn’t an ideal season to visit Santorini, and I wouldn’t recommend it. If you are here, you won’t be swimming in the pool or sea. Stick to warmer items like jeans, hoodies, or your windbreaker.
Temperatures throughout winter will be in the 50s and sometimes into the 40s at night.
