When is best to visit?
From mid-November to early March there can be significant amounts of rainfall and even snow on the mountain summits. Due to the high mountain ridges, plunging steeply to the sea, temperatures vary considerably depending on the altitude. Therefore, between early March and mid November is the best time to go.
During the Easter holidays the island’s coastal resorts come to life with the first festivals of the year. This is a great time of year to visit.
The summer is the busiest period of the year, luxury yacht charter visitors can make the most out of their stay at this time of year, with the guarantee of glorious weather. Thanks to the frequent coastal breeze, even in mid-summer, the temperatures are not too stifling.
Autumn is a fantastic time to explore the island, when temperatures are very pleasant. The majority of restaurants and shops are still open at this time of year. You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the island, without the crowds. In addition, the sea retains its summer warmth for those wishing to scuba dive, snorkel or take advantage of the superyacht toys available with a Northrop & Johnson luxury yacht charter.
