Best time to visit Alonissos

The best time to visit Alonissos is from June to mid-September when the sky is sunny and temperatures average a warm 25°C (77°F).

The summer months of July and August average 26°C (78°F), reaching highs of 29°C (84°F), but are perhaps best avoided as large crowds of European and Greek holidaymakers swamp Alonissos and the Sporades islands during the European summer holidays.

Mid-season (May, September and October) offers reasonable hotel prices and generally less crowds.
