Weather

The climate in Crete is warm and sunny for most of the year with the risk of the odd shower and some cooler periods over the winter.  From April/May onwards the weather settles but it can sometimes be cool in the evenings. By mid/end of May, the weather generally settles in a pattern of long hot sunny days and balmy evenings especially in July and August when it can be very hot.  Rain is unlikely but it can happen from time to time.  May and October are particularly pleasurable months.
