Naxos in mid September for a week

We are going to south west naxos (aliko area) and was wondering what sort of weather is likely for the middle of september, hot/sunny/changeable etc? Likelihood of rain? And is the island busy at this time of year? thanks

I've been there in early September and the weather was great; sunny, warm, etc. I don't imagine that mid-September will be much different. I only saw rain once during 17 days or so in Greece and that was near Iraklion, on Crete, and not for very long.

September shouldn't have to many mainlander Greeks on the islands since their main vacation time is August but when I was there it seemed like it was just as popular with other nationalities, Germans being the most prevalent.


Good luck and have fun.

I am in Naxos right nown and the weather is warm and excellent. The forecast for the coming week also looks great. At the moment it is still quite busy around in my opinion (I usually go in October).

Alyko looked excellent a couple of days ago.

September is the best time of year going. The weather is usually still stable, sea is warm and swimmable and the major crowds are gone. Some places out of town will start closing down, but you will still find many options for accomodation and services.

Going on Friday staying for two weeks…… the same time last year we stayed on Thasos…the weather was wonderful with one cloudy day…so I’m guessing it will be similar or even slightly better with Naxos being 200 miles further south.
