Heraklion – Weather
Crete’s Mediterranean climate means that Heraklion experiences hot, dry summers and mild winters with relatively short autumns and springs. The hottest months to visit are July and August when temperatures can soar to 30˚C, however many of the nearby beaches are kept cool by a refreshing, gentle sea breeze. Temperatures begin to rise in May and tend to sit around the low to mid 20s (˚C) until June, so if you still want to soak up the gorgeous Cretan sunshine but prefer things a little cooler, you might want to plan your visit around this time.
