Summer holidays are something that we all look forward too, so of course it’s time to start booking. In our previous blog, we told you all about how wonderful walking in Crete is so we thought that we’d give you another reason so that you can see why holidays in Crete are incredible. in fact, perhaps one of the most popular reasons that people visit Crete is the sunshine; especially in June, July and August – the summer time!

The Summer Weather

The summer months are absolutely gorgeous here in Crete, especially if you’re seeking hot weather. On average the temperatures in Crete reach around glorious 26 – 30°C, which is perfect if you desire a tan or you simply want to relax in the summer sun! It is mainly sunny, with a few white clouds around – it rarely rains during these months, which is good news if you’re travelling from Britain!

If you desire a walking or an intensive sporty holiday, it’s usually more advisable to visit in Spring when the weather is warm and not too hot! However, it is up to you; the summer is the perfect time for water sports and relaxation.
