Written by Oryx
Oryx presents its insider’s tips for places to visit in July. The perfect conditions offer travellers the chance to witness Santorini’s spectacular sunsets, experience the midnight sun in Reykjavik, and explore Bali during its dry season.
Santorini is an archipelago made up of five volcanic islands in the southern Aegean Sea. July is one of the most popular months of the year to visit, when temperatures are high (averaging 26°C to 27°C), sunshine is almost guaranteed every day, and the chance of rainfall is incredibly low. Throughout the month, Santorini enjoys a a daily average of 14 hours of sunshine, but it’s when these hours of sunlight are coming to a close in the evening that crowds are drawn from all over the island to the small cliff-side community of Oia, to watch the spectacular Aegean sunset.

July is one of the best times to visit Reykjavik – not only will you experience the coastal capital’s warmest weather, but also its long days with almost 24 hours of sunlight, a phenomenon known as the midnight sun. Iceland’s best attractions are its natural wonders, such as geysers, glaciers, hot springs, and waterfalls.
July falls in Bali’s dry season, with both average temperatures and sea temperatures of around 27°C. Known for its lush rainforests and scenic beaches, Bali is also popular due to its unique culture. Catch a traditional Balinese dance performance, explore the island’s many temples, and indulge in a Balinese massage.
