Weather Averages for Santorini in August
Averages for Santorini in August
August remains swelteringly hot in Santorini, with beautiful weather and plenty to see and do. Daytime temperatures reach a very warm 27°C (81°F) and never dip any lower than 22°C (71°F) at night. This means you can spend all day at the beach working on your tan before enjoying excellent food and drink at a Greek taverna in the warm evening breeze!
With 13 hours of sunshine each day, there’s plenty of tanning to be done, and you can head to the popular beaches of Kamari and Perissa where the water is calm and there’s plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants close by for your convenience. Kamari Beach also hosts the Kamari Sea Fest during August, so be sure to check out what they have to offer.
These beaches can become very crowded at this time of year, so for something more secluded you can head to Amoudi or Armeni Beach – however, the water here may not be ideal for swimming and they are only accessible via many flights of stairs.
Santorini Ifaisteia Festival also takes place in August with a series of cultural events that culminate in an impressive fireworks display.
There’s plenty of affordable accommodation available at this time of year, so if you want budget self catering apartments you can head to the Anemomilos Hotel in the centre of Fira or Anastasis Apartments on the seafront in Imerovigli.
Zorzis Hotel offers bright and airy traditional style accommodation all set around an outdoor swimming pool near Perissa Beach, while the family run Danae Villa in Fira boasts an excellent location and top class service in a charming traditional building.
