What’s the weather like in Zante in July?
Sitting in the Ionian Sea off the west coast of southern Greece, Zante has a typical Mediterranean climate. This means you’ll get hot and sunny weather in July with hardly any rain. You’ll be kept cool by the sea and north westerly winds. These are usually at their strongest in the afternoon so things are nice and calm for you in the evening. Zante’s quite mountainous in the west meaning the northwest gets more rain than other areas. Head to beaches in the southeast for the best protection from winds and rains. The central Greek mountains protect Zante from cold northerly winds that pick up as the year goes on.
The average high in Zante is 31ºC in July, which is perfect beach weather. Don’t fill your suitcase with warm clothes as this only drops to 20ºC at night, making the evenings lovely and comfortable. The sea temperature’s 24ºC, while humidity’s high. Rainfall’s usually 6mm over a single day, and you can look forward to 14 hours of daylight with 13 long hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so make sure you pack some sun cream. Sunset’s around 9pm, making it an ideal place for al fresco dining.
