Ive heard it gets really windy in Santorini and i was wondering if thats true for Mid May as well.

I am travelling to Santorini in Mid may and was wondering what to pack... would dresses/shorts and t-shirts suffice for the day, with maybe a thin jacket and jeans for the evenings?

May can be unpredictable - last year it was very windy all through the month, but I've been in May before and we had a heatwave.

You need to be prepared for sun, wind and rain in May - take a couple of longer sleeved garments, maybe a light jacket, shawls, wraps, that sort of thing for the evenings if it gets cooler.

It was VERY windy last year, but according to reports so far, this year is better. Late July / August is when the main Meltemi winds are expected.

Just keep an eye on a weather report and put in appropriate clothing the night before.
