In May, the weather’s warming up towards its summer peak, although temperatures are still really comfortable at this time. With lots of sunshine and hardly any rain, May is a great month to visit Heraklion if you prefer fewer crowds or have young children.


    The average temperature at this time of year in Heraklion is 19ºC, reaching highs of 23ºC in the peak of the afternoon. With ten hours of sunshine each day on average, May is ideal for relaxing on the beach without getting too hot. If you want to take a dip in the sea, the Mediterranean waters are 20ºC this month.
