Weather in Crete
The Cretan climate is friendly all year round. Crete’s location means that it sits in two climate zones – the Mediterranean and the North African. Mainly, Crete enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot and humid summers.
Winters are fairly mild and while snowfall is common on the mountains between November and May, it rarely shows in the coastal areas. A Cretan summer will generally enjoy temperatures from the high 20s-low 30s (Celsius), with maximum temperatures reading the upper 30s to mid 40s.
Traditionally, travellers make plans to visit Crete during the months of April through to September, which is the most popular period for tourists wanting that burst of summer sun and warmth. But since even the winters are friendly in Crete, more and more travellers are opting to visit during the months of October through to March, when Crete is not so crowded.
