If you want to spend your holiday exploring the ancient cities of the Minoans such as Knossós and Festós then springtime is your best bet. Temperatures are around 20°C in April, so it’s comfortable sight-seeing weather. Summer brings hot temperatures, which are great for a week or two on the beach. It’s still warm in December, but there is a higher chance of rain. Our two-week Crete weather forecast shows you what to expect if you’re jetting off soon.
To enjoy the natural beauty of Crete, (don’t miss stunning Samaria Gorge) late spring and early autumn have the most comfortable temperatures with the least chance of a shower. Our monthly round-ups of the Crete weather forecast will help you plan further ahead.
