Best Time To Go To Crete

The Weather is largely mild almost throughout the year. You will be able to travel almost throughout the year. Here is a rough guide so you can decide the time most suitable to your visit.

  • Winter (November to Feb): The weather is cold so the beaches will not have the same dreamy effect. In fact a lot of the places will be closed in winter. But you will get a tranquil if mild beach holiday without any crowds. You can always visit the museums during this time.
  • Rain: March and April See rain and it is quite unpredictable. However the tariffs are cheaper and if you are lucky you may not see any rain almost throughout your visit.
  • Summer: June to August is summer. This is the peak tourist season. Lots of crowd, parties, dancing, activity and event but also peak season rates should be expected. If you want a milder version of this September and October are probably the best time to visit because it isn’t too cold nor are there many people, a win-win.
