Weather & Climate

Best time to visit Rhodes: Sea temperatures remain in the 20s (°C) in November.

With 300 days of sunshine a year, warm weather in Rhodes is guaranteed, no matter when you choose to visit. Sunny days (reaching up to 23°C) are even still the case in December. Coastal areas are kept comfortably cool from the scorching heat thanks to the Meltemi wind blowing in from the north.

Getting Around

By hire car or scooter: With a 220km coastline, the best way to explore the island is by hire-car or scooter.

By bus: Buses are a comfortably cool (they’re all air-conditioned) and inexpensive way to get around the island. They tend to run quite often but as with the rest of the Greek islands, this isn’t the case past midnight.

By boat: If you fancy a sunny boat ride around the island, hop on one of the tours departing from Mandraki harbour in the north-eastern tip.


Folklore: Visit one of the many open-air folklore events held in Rhodes’ Old Town. Folklore dancers dressed in the island’s traditional dress as well as theatrical performances for kids run May to October here.

Up the pace: Put your foot on the gas at one of the speed racing events (for both cars and motorbikes) organised by Rhodes’ Motorcycle Society throughout summer. You can even take part if you like.
