Best time to go to Crete
Summers in Crete start early and last long into the year. Already in April the mercury is on the rise and, by the time May rolls around, temperatures are averaging 24°C. In July and August the thermometer regularly reaches 3o°C, although it never seems terribly hot, thanks to the seasonal summer breezes. You can still head to the beach in September and October, as the temperatures continue to hover between the low and high 20s. As far as rain is concerned, it usually confines itself to the winter months of November to March, with only an occasional shower during the rest of the year.
