June v september

Have visited Naxos several times mid June, thinking September this year and wonder how weather and amount of tourists compare?

September is an excellent time for Naxos. The weather is good, and the sea is still warm. Tourist numbers are down. If you look up my Naxos photos most of them are from autumn vacations - September and even October, and some from April (I am usually there for the Greek Easter celebrations as well).

Over recent years we have changed from visiting Naxos late May/early June to mid September. The scenery is not quite so good in September, Naxos is browner with no wild flowers. The sea is warmer in September. In mid September, out of town, some Tavernas and accomodation are closing for season as tourist numbers are down - but this can result in some very good deals on room costs. Really not much difference in weather but on balance we just prefer September.

We were on Naxos this past Oct. and the weather was still wonderful, warm enough for short sleeve shirt doing the day and even the nights, had a rain storm on the way to Delos/Mykonos but cleared up very quickly and turned very warm and humid. Sept. will probably be even better than Oct. but we feel Sept. and/or Oct. is one of the best times to visit Greece, either the mainland or islands. Off season rates, less tourists, still beach weather, and friendly and accommodating locals. In fact we are booked for another trip to Athens and Greece for Oct. 2014. I can't wait!
