month in Zante , giving you a play by play of what you can expect on your holiday in Zante.
May is the very start of the season in Zante if you go out any earlier you are basically a
local, the very first workers come out to Zante at the start of May in order to try and get
jobs. It’s not really a time for tourists to be coming out as most of the bars and clubs are
still shut at this time. With that being said you can get some really cheap deals if you
aren’t really bothered about partying in the big clubs over May. The weather in May is
pleasant you can expect high of 25 degrees and a few days of rain but on the whole it a lot
better that the UK!
June is when the main bars, clubs and events all start and over the past few years it’s
becoming extremely popular to come earlier and earlier in June for a lot of people due to
the cheaper prices of flights and packages. The weather in June in Zante is pretty much
perfect not too hot with a little breeze high of 30 with barely a cloud in the sky. We would
say mid June is the ideal time to come to Zante whether wise. With that and the cheap deals

scorching, you can expect highs of up to 35 degrees so times even hotter and you would be
lucky to see any rain at all. If there is any rain it will pass in no time. With July being

August is a real mix of different nationalities, we tend to find its the main holiday season
for the Italians who tend to come in their thousands to Zante. So the resort does really get
split down the middle in a 50:50 split between the Brits and other nationalities. With that
being said they do tend to stick to their own parties and clubs. The weather in August is
still pretty much as hot as it gets especially in the first few weeks, towards the end of
August it starts to cool down a little and there’s also some amazing deals to be had later
in August for people looking for a last minute escape from the UK.
September is pretty similar to May, The first week or so is the closing parties for all the
events and it tends to be not as busy as it would be in peak season. The weather is still
pretty good cooler than in the peak but still highs of 25 and still very sunny. The upshot
of travelling to Zante in May is definitely the price. You can get some amazingly cheap
deals to Zante in September but our top tip would be to make sure its in the first 2 weeks
as after that no events worth going to are still running.
