2017 season: What we can expect from Zante
The summer season has officially started. May tends to be a quieter month in Zante, but if you’re thinking about a working holiday in Zante this is the time to go.
Revellers from all over travel to the beautiful Greek island, otherwise known as Zakynthos, to meet other likeminded people before scoring jobs and embarking on their working season in Zante.
Temperatures range from 19-23 degrees.
A popular month for young party-goers, expect extravagant opening parties at the beginning of the month, and parties to be in full swing of things by the end of the month.
June is especially popular as flight prices tend to be cheaper than July and August – this is due to summer holiday timings. What a perfect time to celebrate the end of studying!
And whilst June isn’t as busy as July or August, the parties certainly aren’t any less energetic than other months, plus many others’ will have the same idea when it comes to saving a few buck.
Temperatures range from 23-28 degrees.
In July temperatures begin to rise and the island become much busier, especially towards the end of the month when summer holidays commence- many students are breaking up from uni, or finishing A-levels and so celebrating is in order and the peak season begins.
It is useful to note here that if travelling in July, flight prices can be more expensive than previous months due to high demand.
Temperatures can reach 30 degrees so make sure you pack your sun cream, and get to the beach early!
August, the busiest and warmest month of the party season, has some of the craziest parties to offer – expect to see spectacular festivities, your favorite DJs, and a buzz of an atmosphere across the island.
Remember August is still peak season, so expect flights to be more expensive, however if you’re heart is set on hot weather and a busy scene then August is the one for you!
Temperatures can range from 26-31 degrees.
Things begin to cool down in September, the weather becomes cooler, and the island is less busy – if you’re after a cheap and cheerful holiday September is the one.
For all of you Zante workers, September is arguably the best month to be around, things start to come to a close so make the most of the parties and amazing relationships you have made this summer!
Temperatures range from 24-28 degrees.
