What is the best time of year to visit Monastir?
Monastir benefits from a Mediterranean climate that makes its winters mild and humid and its summers hot, with temperatures ranging from 17°C in January to 35°C in August.
If you’re looking to laze about on the beach, the months from June to October are your best bet. Be careful though, because the water takes a while to warm up! The sea is just 19°C in May, but gets up to 25 or 26°C in August. This makes it the perfect time to take advantage of the various water sports on offer: jet skiing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, water skiing, windsurfing, and more. But with a rise in temperature comes a rise in prices!
Feeling adventurous? Tempted by the gorgeous, discovery-filled hikes you’ll find inland? Then definitely avoid summer and instead head over in spring or autumn, which are calmer and milder.
