Below are presented some weather statistics in Zante during the tourist period.
Zante enjoys over 3000 hours of sunshine each year and the hottest months are cooled by the northern prevailing winds, popurarly called ''meltemia''.
Due to the high level of rainfall in the winter the island of Zakynthos is much greener than many other Greek islands and the climate is favourable for the cultivation of olives, citrus fruits and vines.
If you plan on visiting Zante between June and October make sure you book a hotel with air-conditioning. The morning and evening temperature usually is excellent but during the day, Zakynthos can be very warm. All night long you can enjoy Greek food and drinks sitting in a T-shirt on some nice restaurant or bar next to the sea.
Snow in Zante? Yes, it can happen but is rare and it happens only in the mountains of the island.
