What’s the weather like in Greece in April?

Greece’s location in Southeast Europe means most of the country enjoys Mediterranean weather and is getting warmer in April. Rain’s reducing and temperatures are rising after the colder and wetter winter, and you’ll love Greece at this time if you like cooler temperatures and smaller crowds compared to summer.

Seas and mountains

Greece has some 14,000km of coastline, bordering the Aegean, Mediterranean and Ionian Seas. Much of the country’s hilly or mountainous, with the northern Pindus mountains making the west wetter than the east. It’s drier in southern Greece and on the islands, although there can be differences in weather because of the hills. Some mountainous regions have a cooler alpine climate, while the weather’s more continental in northeastern and north-central Greece.


Capital city Athens gives a good indication of the weather in Greece, and has an average high temperature of 20ºC in April. You should be comfortable in shorts and t-shirt during the day, but you’ll need some warmer things for the evenings as temperatures cool to 10ºC at night. The usual sea temperature’s 16ºC, while humidity’s low and normal rainfall’s 31mm over six rainy days. You can expect 13 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day, while UV levels will be high so pack some sun cream. Sunset’s around the 8pm mark for most of the month.
