Weather Overview for Pefkos
Pefkos benefits from a very desirable Mediterranean climate meaning long hot sunny summers and mild winters. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year it’s no wonder the island has become such a popular holiday destination.
The hills in central Rhodes give shelter to Pefkos and make it one of the driest and warmest places on the island.
enjoys long hot dry summers and receives sunshine in abundance. Summer is the
main tourist season; visitors flock from all over
Thankfully relief comes in the form of the meltemi wind – a cooling breeze that blows from the northwest. It is prevalent from May to October and is at its strongest between July and September when it is needed most.
Rainfall is very low throughout summer and in the months of July and August it’s almost nonexistent. June and September only see rain for one day a month on average. The summer months average between 12 and 13 sunshine hours per day, which, if you hadn’t guessed, is exceptionally high.
Autumn is a great time to visit Pefkos, especially in October. The weather is still warm but you don’t get the intense summer heat. On top of that the resort is much quieter than summer – this is a plus for some and a negative for others! The sea temperature remains above 20°C until late November – still warm enough for a lengthy swim!
October has average daytime highs in the low-20s and November sees an average of 19°C. Even at night in late autumn the temperature doesn’t drop to uncomfortable lows.
Rainfall increases in autumn but shouldn’t be too much of a problem. October sees rain on 5 days and November 7 days on average. While a lot of rain falls it usually does so in short storms rather than prolonged showers. Sunny weather is still abundant but you might get the odd quick shower.
The winter months in Pefkos are mild but wet. The winter months of December, January and February see around 70% of the annual rainfall. December and January are the wettest with around 150mm of rain on average and rainfall on a little under half of the days each month.
There can still be plenty of pleasant winter weather, however, and sunny days can see the temperature rising up into the mid teens. January is the coolest month with lows dropping into single figures at night.
Spring is a great time in Pefkos. The mild winter temperatures quickly turn into hot summer ones. Things start to warm up again from March; the average high gets into the high teens, although nights and early mornings are still a little cool. By May daytime highs are in the low to mid 20s and the summer weather really begins.
March still sees a bit of rain, about 8 days a month, but by May rain is rare and you get an average of 10 hours of sunshine per day.
The great weather combined with fewer crowds makes spring a great time to visit. A swim in the sea at this time, however, can be a little bracing as the water doesn’t fully warm up until June.
