What’s the weather like in Rhodes in April?
The largest of the Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes is to the southeast of mainland Greece and close to Turkey’s southwest coast. This means the island has typical Mediterranean weather and you’ll get plenty of sun in April as temperatures are rising and the amount of rain is reducing. Rhodes is quite hilly and its highest peak, Attavyros, is over 1,200m high. This means you’ll be sheltered in the south from the dry northerly winds, so you’ll be warmer here than in the north.
The average high in Rhodes is 20ºC in April, which is perfectly warm enough for you to spend the day at the beach. It can get quite cool at night though, so you should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings. The sea temperature is 17ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 30mm of rain over six days, and you can expect 13 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be high so remember to bring your sun cream. The sun goes down at around 7.30pm at the start of the month and gradually gets later.
