The climate on Rhodes Island

There is usually a mild Mediterranean climate, with sunny (but dry) summers and mild winters. The sun rules the island for about 300 days every year. Early spring until late-autumn is almost an unbroken chain of sunny days and balmy nights. Light, cool breezes from north-northwest make it enjoyable even in July and August.

However, God's gift of unending sunshine allows you to start your holidays from the month of April and finish at the end of November. The rainy season is usually December to March. Precipitation totals just 20 inches the entire year for Rhodes. Remember, the sun is fierce, so carry sunburn creams.  Between May and October are perfect conditions for sailing, the prevailing wind is the "Meltemi" which comes from the NW-W. It begins to blow in June, strengthens from July to September and weakens in October. In the summer months it blows with a wind force of 4-6 Beaufort and may on occasion reach wind force 7.
