One of the beautiful things about Thassos in May is that the sun is out but visitors won't experience discomfort from the heat as the temperatures are just right and not too hot yet.

It's quite possible to thoroughly enjoy time at the beach, however one must remember to use sunscreen as sunburns can be common if care is not taken to avoid them.

The average water temperature in May is right around 18°C (64F°), only slightly cooler that the air temperature which makes for excellent swimming.

As with the previous few months, mountain climbing, hiking and exploring the natural beauty of Thassos, are also best enjoyed this month.

Beach goers will find that the popular beaches are starting to fill up as summer begins.

Water based activities are just starting to gear up again and visitors can experience diving, snorkelling, water skiing, and many other fun activities.
