Temperatures usually reach the high 20s and low 30s throughout the summer months whilst the period between autumn to spring drops to the low teens. Because Alikes is primarily a beach resort with plenty of nature to enjoy when the weather is good, we definitely recommend you skip the winter months and stick to the summer period.
