Intro

What’s the weather like in Aghios Nikolaos in October?

Warm, sunny and with not too much rain. That’s the simple way to describe the Aghios Nikolaos weather in October! This hotspot on Crete’s stunning northern coast gets lots of visitors this month. They’re keen to avoid the peak summer heat and crowds but can still relax in a very pleasant Mediterranean climate.

Geographical influences

Stronger northerly winds coming across the Sea of Crete can reach the island in early autumn months like October. Because Aghios Nikolaos is found on Crete’s northern shoreline, it can be affected by these winds more than resorts to the south. On warmer October days this can feel quite refreshing.

Averages

The great weather in Aghios Nikolaos in October means you can relax by the beach or your hotel’s pool, even though it’s the autumn. The average high daytime temperature is 24°C. At night time this drops to around 16°C, so sleeping is perhaps easier than in the warmer summer months. The Mediterranean Sea will be very inviting to you, with a pleasant average of 21°C in October. That’s perfect for a quick swim or some fun water sports. Take your sunglasses with you if you’re exploring the coast. On average, the sun shines for 11 hours each day and doesn’t set until about 7pm for most of the month. The UV level is moderate in October but you’ll need to use sunblock if you’re bathing at your hotel or on the sandy shores.
