Weather Averages for Santorini in April
Averages for Santorini in April
April in Santorini sees temperatures begin to rise much more as warmer spring weather arrives. Daytime temperatures now reach a very pleasant high of 19°C (66°F) and only fall to around 12°C (54°F) in the evenings. There’s a massive 11 hours of sunshine each day which means you can enjoy exploring Santorini to the fullest during April.
There’s very little chance of rain, with the April average rainfall being only 28mm.
If it’s a clear, sunny day you’ll definitely be heading down to the beach to work on your tan! Kamari Beach boasts 3 miles (5km) of dark volcanic sand on the eastern coast of Santorini and features many water sports as well as many cafes and bars nearby.
Perissa Beach in the south east is also extremely popular as the sand stretches for 4 miles (7km) and there are plenty of charming Greek tavernas along the seafront. This beach is also a hot spot for snorkellers.
If you’re looking for less busy beaches, you can try Amoudi or Armeni Beach that tend to be quieter, but do not offer many amenities and can be somewhat hard to access via long flights of steps.
In the evenings there are plenty of excellent bars and tavernas to be enjoyed along the seafront and in the centre of Fira, with locally caught seafood being a specialty!
Most accommodation has not opened its door yet during April, but there are still several places to stay.
The Anemomilos Hotel is a perennial favourite located close to the central square in Fira, and offers both hotel rooms and self catering apartments and villas.
Also near the centre of the city is Danae Villa, a family run hotel built in a charming traditional style that also features a large outdoor pool.
