    Heraklion weather December

    What’s the weather like in Heraklion in December?

    This charming resort on the Greek island of Crete is pleasant in winter months like December. The Heraklion weather in December is mild enough to take strolls on the beaches and around the historic streets and ancient sights, but it’s the wettest month and you’ll need to bring some warmer clothing. The region is quiet and many visitors love this peaceful time of the year.

    Geographical influences

    The weather in Heraklion in December is slightly affected by the resort’s location on Crete’s pretty northern coast. Towns here have ever so slightly cooler and wetter conditions than those in the south. This is because northerly winds sweep across the Sea of Crete and reach this part. Resorts in the south are shielded by Crete’s central hills.


    You’ll probably need a showerproof jacket if you visit Heraklion in December, but generally the island is mild and not too wet. The average daytime high temperature in December is 17°C, which is warm for winter, and sunshine can last for up to nine hours a day. The wind speed is a moderate 9mph. The rainfall average for this month in Heraklion is 89mm with about 14 rainy days. Taking a dip in the sea isn’t always an option as the temperature drops to a cool 18°C.
