If you plan on beating the rush of people on holidays in Acharavi then May is the perfect time. Those looking for a quiet holiday will normally find the beaches deserted, although the weather may not always be just as stunning as those summer months. Expect temperatures in the lower 20's and perhaps a small chill at night but still pack the beach clothes as when it is sunny, you will still get a tan! June and July are the hottest and busiest months, so you can expect the place to be a bit more crowded. The autumn months of September and October may experience a bit less sunshine but nothing can taint the beauty of this island!
Beaches are always one of the most important factors when deciding where to go on holiday and Acharavi has many! The main beach is a mix of sand and shingle and is perfect for the children as the depth of the water remains at waist height for around fifty metres from the shore. Water sports and snorkeling are very popular in the area. The scenery is excellent in this resort as you can see the neighbouring resort of Roda, the island of Erikoussa and the stunning mountains of Albania in the distance.
