Based on average temperatures and trends, the more southern countries tend to be the hottest in May, for example Greece and Southern Spain. This is obviously not a guarantee as weather in May can be very unpredictable throughout Europe. For example, this year (2011), parts of the UK reached higher temperatures in April and May than some areas of the Mediterranean. This is highly unusual, but shows that it is very difficult to predict where will be the hottest country to visit.

Some examples of typical temperatures around Europe in May are listed below.

- Greece - around 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit)
- The Algarve - around 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Tenerife - around 18 degrees Celsius ( 64 degrees Fahrenheit)
- London - around 13 degrees Celsius (55 degrees Fahrenheit)

As you can see, on average, Greece and the Greek islands are most likely to experience the highest temperatures in May.

Depending on the reason this question refers only to Europe; Turkey may be a good option if you are planning a holiday. However, in terms of flight times from the UK, Turkey will take a little longer than other European countries. Turkey can experience temperatures of around 26 - 27 degrees Celsius during the month of May.
