What’s the weather like in Rethymnon in April?
Located on the north coast of Crete, Rethymnon is a popular holiday destination with lots of history. It has a Mediterranean climate which brings hot, dry summers and mild, damp winters to the area. In April, temperatures are rising as spring continues, and you can expect plenty of warm and sunny weather if you visit at this time. It gets warm enough to relax on the beach, but April is a perfect month to go sightseeing in the local area, away from the high heat of summer.
The average temperature in Rethymnon in April is 15ºC, peaking at 18ºC in the warmest part of the afternoon. You should be comfortable wearing a t-shirt when you’re exploring the sights during the day, but you’ll need some warmer clothes for evenings out, as temperatures dip to a low of 11ºC at night. Now that spring is in full swing, there’s only 15mm of rain forecast in April, which expects eight hours of sunshine each day. If you want to go for a swim in the Mediterranean Sea, the water’s a refreshing 17ºC this month.
