Rhodes weather in May is just perfect for your holiday!
May is considered to be shoulder season in Rhodes! Shoulder season is my favourite time to visit a place! You know why? Because the prices are still low, the number of tourists is more than reasonable and the weather is great!
In May the weather is warm enough to spend long hours at the beach, perfect for sightseeing and exploring the island!
During most of the days, there is a cool breeze flying over the beaches but it is nothing to bother you. On the contrary! It is exactly what you need to cool off and stay more hours on the beach!
Very early in the morning and late in the evening you might need a sweater but I don’t consider this to be an inconvenience! Rhodes weather in May is still great for your holiday!
The average temperatures are around 20 degrees celsius with many days when it can rise up to 25 or even 27 degrees Celsius. The lowest temperatures might drop to 16 or 18 degrees Celsius during the night but as I said, a sweater solves the problem!
The days have about 10 hours of light, enough to explore the island and enjoy your holiday!
The main downside of this period is the sea temperature! If you are expecting to find a warm sea, well I must tell you that the water temperature is somewhere around 19 or 20 degrees Celsius. Still, this is not an excuse to take a bath! You might not spend hours in the sea, but a short bath in the Mediterranean Sea you could do!
As regarding the raindrops, there are estimated a maximum of 4 days of rain during this time of the year!
Rhodes weather in May is perfect for your holiday!
No rain, a cool breeze, warm and sunny days… What else could you wish for your holiday?!
We visited Rhodes for 7 wonderful days in May and the weather was perfect! All the days were sunny with no rain! Maybe a little bit chilly in the evening when we came from dinner but we still could stay on our patio and listen to the sound of the sea.
We like this month of the year because the summer season is not considered to be open yet and the tourists are still far away at their homes, the prices are still reasonable and it is a good time to explore the area.
We choose to spend our holiday at Sentido Port, an adults-only hotel located 25 kilometres away from Rhodes town and 25 kilometres away from Lindos.
So... are you ready for your own experience at Sentido Port Royal Villas & Spa ?
The services, the food, everything was just great! It is a very classy 5-star hotel with decent prices located right on the beach! A very good choice if you are looking for a quiet hotel where to relax and enjoy your holiday!
Spread across the island there are many ancient sites and interesting places to explore! The ruins of the ancient cities near Lindos or Rhodes, as well as the Butterfly Valley or the picturesque city of Lindos, are just some of the places which are worth visiting when visit Rhodes.
You can reach these sites by car or by taxi! But I personally advise you to rent a car if you plan to explore the island and not just lay in the sun!

Taxis might be a little bit pricey and with the money you give on 2 or 3 taxi rides you can rent a car and explore the island on your own! Don’t worry! It is not a dangerous island! People are very friendly and welcoming, so as long as you act decent and with respect, nothing wrong could happen.
So, taking all these into consideration, I consider that Rhodes weather in May is ideal for your summer holiday as long as you don’t want to spend a lot of money but still enjoy the sun and the beauty of the island!
