    What’s the weather like in Heraklion in August?

    Heraklion enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean climate with amazing temperatures in August, when summer’s in full swing at this pretty coastal resort in Crete. The Heraklion weather in August is very hot and dry with hours and hours of glorious sunshine. This Greek resort is busy at this time of the year with families and couples soaking up the sun.

    Geographical influences

    Heraklion is found along Crete’s stunning northern coastline, between the popular resorts of Elounda and Rethymnon. The north side of Crete usually has a slightly cooler and wetter climate compared to the south. This is because it’s exposed to the northerly winds which can reach the island. In hot summer months like August this can be very welcoming.

The average wind speed of 10mph helps to keep the heat bearable, especially as the humidity level is moderate at around 68%. The UV index is high, as you’d expect, so keep the sunblock on when you’re sunbathing. The average daily sunshine’s a brilliant 13 hours and the sun won’t set until about 8.20pm at the beginning of the month. You’ll love taking a dip in the sea as the average water temperature is 26°C.
