What’s the weather like in Crete in July?
Sitting in the southern Aegean between mainland Greece and North Africa, Crete’s the largest of the Greek islands. This location means that you’ll get lots of hot and sunny weather if you’re going in July. The island has the warmest weather in the whole of Greece. The mountains that run east to west act as a barrier to north westerly winds, meaning the south’s warmer and drier. There’ virtually no rain in July. You’ll feel the welcome effects of the sea and cool breezes on the coast, while things are cooler in the mountains.
The average high reaches 29ºC in Crete during July, which is great for lounging by the pool or on the beach. Things stay lovely and warm in the evenings, so you should be fine in shorts and t-shirts. The sea temperature’s 22ºC, while humidity’s moderate. There’s just a single millimetre of rain, and you can look forward to 14 hours of daylight with 12 long hours of sunshine each day. Wear sun cream outside as UV levels will be extremely high. Sunset’s around 8.30pm, which is perfect for having dinner outside.
