What’s the weather like in Mykonos in May?
The summer climate takes over and the Mykonos weather in May is very warm and sunny. There’ll be hardly any rain and plenty of time to relax at the beach or by your hotel pool. In the quiet month of May, this pretty Greek island’s one of the best spots in the Aegean Sea.
Mykonos enjoys a fantastic Mediterranean-like climate because it’s found in the warm waters of the Aegean, to the south-east of Greece. The cooling Meltemi winds begin in May. These blow from the north across the Cyclades islands between Greece and Turkey.
The warm weather in Mykonos in May sees an average high of 23°C. This shouldn’t fall below 18°C during the day, and in the evening it’s often around 16°C. The brilliant weather’s helped by an average of 11 hours of sunshine each day in Mykonos. It rises at 6am and finally fades at 8.30pm, giving you many hours to soak up the sun. The UV index is moderate to high, though, so you’ll need plenty of sunblock. The rain’s nothing to worry about in May. On average, the island gets about 19mm over just three wet-weather days. The Aegean will be 19°C this month and a great place to cool off.
