Weather Overview for Faliraki
If you’ve heard of Faliraki chances have it you may have already developed in opinion on what goes on on this infamous party island- thanks to a British documentary about the popular holiday spot which painted Faliraki as nothing more than a party spot for drunken British youths. While the island is certain much livelier than some of the other Greek islands- it does have much more to offer than simply night clubs, bars and nights out (albeit if you are after a week long ocean side party, Faliraki can definitely provide you with this!)
Lying on the island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese, about 14 kilometers south of the town of Rhodes and 10 km south east from the airport, Faliraki is a bustling lively ocean side resort town that sees 1000’s of people flock to it in the summer months of July and August. It is one of the oldest and largest resort areas in all of Greece and is famed for is beautiful long sandy beaches, crystal clear water, copious water sports and beach activities and the famed bars and clubs of the Faliraki night life.
Summer sees temperatures in Faliraki reach in excess of 30 degrees for multiple days, particularly during July and August. The average daily temperature in July and August is 29 degrees, with average maximum sitting at 30 and 31 degrees respectively. The summer temperatures last well into October before cooling down in early November, in saying this however even December records and average daily maximum of 17 degrees- fairly pleasant if you ask me!
Rainfall is indicative of a typical Mediterranean climate- a short rainy season in the winter months which brings average precipitation of close to 150 mm for the month in December and January, before dying off and reaching very minimal precipitation across summer. On average July and August record no rainfall at all across the month. See here for average rainfall table across the year.
While the island does get very hot in the summer months, there are two saving graces- the relatively low humidity and the coastal breezes that wash across the town in the evenings. In the winter months, humidity sits at about 70% average relative humidity while in the summer months it sits at a comfortable 50-60% which is barely noticeable.
