Heraklion Weather Forecast

With so much to offer, knowing the Heraklion weather forecast will help you plan your visit to this fascinating city. Pick the perfect weather to wander around historical sites and busy markets, or just laze in the sun on the beach.

If you want to see sights like the Venetian Koules Fortress or Plata Venizelou with its Turkish fountain, then late autumn or spring is best to avoid the summer heat. This is the time to choose if you want to explore nearby Knossos, too. It’s still pretty warm in winter, and you can always duck into the excellent museums if you need to dodge the odd shower.

If it’s sunshine that you crave, then our Heraklion weather forecast gives you the lowdown on Heraklion’s hotspots. Temperatures reach 30°C in July and August, so it’s a great time to indulge in lazy days by the pool before heading out for a bite to eat on the waterfront.

Use the up-to-the-minute forecast to help you make those last-minute plans. Alternatively, if you love to plan, then our monthly round-up of the Heraklion weather forecast will keep you updated all year round.
