Best time to save the date

As Crete is the most southerly of the Greek islands, days of warm sunshine are a plenty. You can safely set your date from as early as April and enjoy lovely warm weather. The summer months see highs of up to 35ºC with no rain, but luckily Crete benefits from warm breezes that keeps the island from being painfully scorching. The warm weather continues through to September and even October sees highs of 24ºC. Meaning you’ve got seven warm months to choose from before the rainy months hit in November through to March.
