Our Kefalonia weather report

Let’s face it: the main reason many of us go on holiday to foreign destinations is to escape the British weather, hoping to find somewhere hotter, drier and sunnier. If (like us) that is what you are looking forward to, then Kefalonia is the perfect choice!

Wall to Wall Sunshine

We went in late Spring (June) and enjoyed glorious weather – wall to wall sunshine every day, not a spot of rain and temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s at the very least. The mornings sometimes started off a little misty, but this soon cleared to give us deep blue skies, which lasted all day. Days spent lazing around the pool are perfect for this weather. Or you may prefer to enjoy the light breeze of the seaside, to keep you from over-heating!

Both the sea and the hotel pools were warm enough to swim in comfortably, but also perfect for cooling off after a time in the Sun.

Warm Evenings

Evenings were also gently warm – he could go out in shirt sleeves or I would wear a light dress, with only a shawl to cover my shoulders on the way home. We ate outside for every meal, often seeking shade from the hot sun at midday.

The coast is much hotter than inland, since the temperatures cool as you rise into the mountains of Kefalonia’s interior. We really enjoyed our trips up into the hills – not just for sight-seeing, but for the cooler, refreshing weather it gave us.

BBC Kefalonia weather - Kefallinia National, and current weather observations:

Later in the season, the weather really hots up: temperatures on the coast can consistently reach mid to late 30s (or even higher) and unlike many other Greek islands, the winds actually die down a little in August, so it really feels hot. The sea is a fantastic temperature in summer too – usually around the mid 20s, which explains why the beaches are so popular! Rain is rare in mid summer.

By Autumn, the temperature drops again to similar temperatures to Spring, but it can be wetter and cloudier (although not by British standards...). You can expect temperatures between mid 20s and low 30s in Autumn and the sea is deliciously warm, since it retains its heat from the summer.

Winter on Kefalonia is mild but much wetter than the summer, which explains why everywhere is so green and beautiful. You can expect temperatures between 5 and 12 in the winter months, with January and February as the coolest.
