|How to use the table|
|Being so close to the Turkish coast has a strong influence
on the climate of Rhodes. As a rule of thumb, any Greek Island close to
Turkey is going to be wetter in winter, and quite a lot hotter in
summer, than those Greek Islands further away from Turkey such as Naxos.
Summers in Rhodes are long and hot. From late April right through into October you can be reasonably confident of plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. May through August see hardly any rain; September and October see only a small amount. Sea breezes make the high temperatures bearable in general but outdoor activity may well feel uncomfortable in the high summer months of July and August. Nights are warm but usually not so warm as to demand an air-conditioned room for sleep.
November through February are the wettest months for Rhodes with December and January in particular seeing a lot of rain. However temperatures by day usually approach 60F (15 C) which means there is only the rain to affect outdoor activities.
If you fancy a dip in the sea while you're in Rhodes, June through October
see water temperatures into the 70s F (above 21 C) which is warm enough
for most people.
