What’s the weather like in Elounda in May?
Located along the north coast of Crete, Elounda is a picturesque resort town on this historical island. It’s a popular place for relaxing beach holidays thanks to its hot, dry summers and temperatures are warming up in May as spring ends. If you want to explore the local area and go sightseeing around Crete, May is a great month to visit away from the busier crowds and hotter weather of the high season.
In Elounda, the average temperature at this time of year’s a pleasant 19ºC, reaching highs of 23ºC in the peak of the afternoon. May’s a dry month for the town, with only 15mm of rain expected over the course of four days. Things can get quite cool in the evenings, though, when temperatures dip to 14ºC, so you’ll need a jumper or cardigan for evenings out at the local bars and restaurants. For days at the beach, there are ten hours of sunshine each day in May, while the Mediterranean waters are a pleasant 19ºC this month.
