Sailing Conditions in Rhodes

Rhodes is famous for its excellent weather conditions for sailing due to the mild Mediterranean climate. Navigation is simple on the Greek coast of Rhodes. The most favorable time for a yacht vacation in Greece is from May to October. But in other months, sea adventures are no less exciting and interesting.

Rhodes is “occupied” by Meltemi — a strong dry summer wind, which blows from mid-May to mid-September. Meltemi usually dies down in the evening, but it can blow for several days. The wind direction on the island is from north to northwest.

Under the current pandemic situation, yachting is a safe alternative to hotel vacations. On the yacht, you will have minimal contact with strangers, and if you wish, you can sail for the whole week in the company of close family members. The less you interact with other people, the safer your vacation is.

The active tourist season on the island of Rhodes starts at the beginning of May and ends on the last days of September. The peak season is June, July, and August. The climate on the island is as comfortable as possible for tourists. It is a Mediterranean climate, mild and humid in winter but hot and fresh in summer.

In June, it is not too hot. The air temperature reaches +26 °C – +28 °C, the water warms up to +22 °C. July and August are the hottest months; the air temperature reaches +30 °C, the water warms up to +26 °C. Usually, there are no rains during these months. The northeast cool and humid wind saves you from the heat.

In September, the temperature is only a couple of degrees lower than in August, an average of +24 °C (water and air). Out of season in Rhodes, almost all spots of rest, food, and entertainment are closed. Therefore, better not consider the island for a sailing trip on the New Year holidays.
