Weather Overview for Thassos

Thassos is a Greek Island located in the North Aegean Sea and is probably the furthest north as far as Greek holiday destinations go. Due to its position in the North East of Greece, it experiences a climate much cooler than the other more popular Greek Islands such as Mykonos, Ios and Santorini. The summer months from June to August see average temperatures ranging from 24.5 in June, 27 ºC in July and 26.5 in August, cooling back down to 25 ºC bySeptember.

Thassos, it is argued, has much more to offer than just beaches, sunsets and parties. It is a ‘geographical gem’ as far as landscapes goes. The beaches, as well as being equipped with white sand and crystal clear water, are lined by greenery and large trees which grow right to the edge of the beach. If holidaying in Thassos it is best to split time up between the picturesque mountain villages and the relaxed waterfront resorts.

Thassos is largely unaffected by the masses of tourism that have slightly ruined the authenticity of other Greek Islands. When holidaying in Thassos you will quickly fall in to the delightfully relaxed slow pace of the locals. While Thassos is growing in popularity, your experience will be inclusive of a more traditional Greek atmosphere and culture than if you are to holiday in the more popular regions of Greece.

Summer

Thassos is sheltered by mainland Greece from the prevailing winds that affect other Greek Islands, so this means that when the temperatures rise so too can the level of discomfort as the days' heat is not broken up by a cooling wind. Thassos, however, does not reach the scorching temperature highs that the other islands do- so temperature discomfort is minimal.

The summer months from June to August see average temperatures ranging from 24.5 in June, 27 ºC in July and 26.5 in August, cooling back down to 25 ºC by September.

During this time the average sea temperature hovers around the mid 20’s, which makes for a very enjoyable swimming experience! On the whole, Thassos holidays offer excellent conditions for swimming and watersports.

Summers in Thassos have a tendency to be quite humid, this is not helped by the lack of prevailing winds. July and August see average maximums of 28 ºC with rainfall at a minimum.

Winter

Winters in Thassos are moderate, and were once described in the scripts of Hippocrates when he wrote ‘Generally winter resembles spring’ in Thassos. Though the temperature does cool down to an average of 5 to 6 ºC come winter time, the sun continues to shine and the weather stays pleasant and enjoyable.

The winter afternoons are often visited by heavy downpours, these are usually short-lived and the sky soon returns to its clear and crisp norm. Throughout the winter months air temperatures will reach about 12 to 13 ºC during the day and the island will enjoy around 4 hours of sunshine. Outside the colder months and particularly during September to November, Thassos weather is perfect for both sunbathing and outdoor activities.

The Spring months are generally considered the ideal time to visit Thassos. During this period the island enjoys warm sunshine, little prolonged rainfall. There is also unique luscious and green vegetation. September sees an average maximum of 24 ºC and an average minimum of 14 ºC before falling to an average maximum of 14 ºC and a minimum of 6 ºC by November.
