The weather in May
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 is to visit Thassos, then you would be disappointed if you visited it before the 20 of May, because the weather is not ideal for a swim. The air is cool and fresh, so getting out of the water can be a little uncomfortable. Of course, this is not a strict rule, but mostly it is. The proof that there are no rules is also one previous November, which was unexpectedly warm, so we cannot even guess how it will be in May.
One rule is that bathing on Thassos begins around Easter. If Easter is on the calendar in May, then coming to Thassos is the right choice, because the Greeks respect their religious holidays, especially Easter as the largest of them, so apart from the vacation, you can feel the holiday mood in Greece, which is also very valuable an unforgettable experience.
The weather is difficult to predict, especially for the long term, but what you need to know is that the month of May is beautiful for a peaceful holiday without the hustle, that the temperatures are pleasant, that there is usually no rain or wind, that the smell of pines is the most intense, that bathing doesn’t have to be pleasant, but the cost of accommodation is much lower, so all of the above facts have an effect on many tourists, especially from Scandinavian countries, to visit Thassos in May.
So, if you go to Thassos without the real reason and desire to just swim, you can have a great time and rest.
