The weather in May in Thassos Island
A frequent question is what the weather is like in May on Thassos and whether it is possible to swim in the sea.
Although it is very ungrateful to answer questions about the weather, the month of May and spring, in general, are the most beautiful part of the year on Thassos. The average temperature is about 24 degrees, and generally without wind or rain. Nature is in its full splendor and vegetation is most abundant. The unreal blue-green color of the water is breathtaking and the pines and greenery above the coast give you a feeling of freshness and complete rest.
If your only goal in Thassos is to swim, then you would be disappointed if you visited it before the 20 of May, because the weather is not ideal for a swiming. The air is cool and fresh, especially with the breeze that often blows, and the average sea temperature is around 18 degrees. Of course, it can happen that May is extremely warm and sometimes even warmer than June, but mostly it is not.
