What’s the weather like in Kos in March?
The Greek island of Kos sits in the Aegean Sea close to the southwest coast of Turkey. It has a Mediterranean climate which brings hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters to this popular holiday destination. Temperatures are slowly rising in March, and there’s much less rain than over the damp winter months. It’s still a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket if you visit Kos at this time of year, although you can still look forward to six hours of daily sunshine in March.
The average temperature in Kos is 12ºC in March, with highs of 14ºC in the warmest part of the afternoon. Around 75mm of rain’s expected over nine wet days, so this isn’t the best month to visit if you want to make the most of the beautiful beaches in Kos. You’ll need to bring some warm clothes for evenings out at the island’s bars and restaurants, as temperatures fall to an average of 9ºC after dark. If you want to go for a dip in the sea, you’ll need to be quite brave as the water measures a cool 16ºC this month.
