When trying decide WHEN to sail Greece, for a trip in March - April - May you might want to have in mind that:

  • You should expect smooth sailing - the strong summer winds (meltemi) are yet to come so you should expect calmer seas than in the summer. Of course weather conditions vary from area to area and can vary from week to week so you might have anything from flat seas (just like a lake – when you can enjoy the calmness and sunbathing on the mattresses) to choppy sea (where you can enjoy sailing, a beautiful ride and the adventure).
  • You will meet very friendly locals – winter is a quite time in the Greek islands. So in spring, when the first tourists start to arrive, locals are delighted and looking forward to meet you and start a discussion. Thus spring in the best time to get to know the locals , mingle with them and enjoy the laid back rhythm of the Greek islands.
  • Perfect season for active holidays - a spring break full of adventures. The ones that would like to combine their sailing experience in the Greek islands with exploring the picturesque villages of the islands, getting lost in a maze of narrow cobbled paths, enjoying the unique scenery and scenic landscape sightseeing, hike and explore ancient mule-path, visiting temples and enjoying different activities (trekking, biking, walking, etc) spring weather and temperatures create the perfect conditions so you can enjoy history and nature without worrying about getting sun-stroke. For activities please see our alternative sailing - other activitiespage.

The drawbacks:

  • Sea water not as warm as during the summer or autumn months. You should expect a sea temperature of 16-20 Degrees Celsius (59-68 Fahrenheit). So you can still enjoy a short swim and other water activites like stand up paddleboarding (SUP), sunbathing, kayaking etc. But if swimming is your main interest and looking for water as warm as possible, you might want to look at the sailing in autumnpage.
  • The islands are not bursting with nightlife although most of the bars / restaurants / clubs will be opened.
