Crete is the largest and most amazing island in Greece. Crete is the island where Zeus was born, and the Minotaur lived. This island is home to the most famous mountain canyon in Europe.

Crete climate and weather

Crete has a Mediterranean climate. The swimming season here begins in mid-April and ends in mid-November. The best time to travel to Crete is from June to September.

Crete beaches and sea

Three seas favor the shores of Crete: in the west, they are washed by the Ionian Sea, in the north by the Aegean, and in the south and east by the Mediterranean. Sometimes the northern waters are called the Cretan Sea, and the southern waters are called the Libyan Sea (these are parts of the Mediterranean Sea). The water warms up very quickly, so already in mid-April, the first tourists arrange a swim off the Cretan coast.

The beaches in Crete have different coverage – there are sandy, pebble, and mixed areas. Perhaps the most favorite beach among vacationers is Elafonisi. Couples come here to the south of Crete – the entrance to the water is very smooth, and the sand is soft, light pink. Lovers of white sand, palm trees and silence choose the eastern Wai Beach. 

Divers come to Balos Bay looking for pirate treasures in a sunken ship. In the capital of the island – in Heraklion – the popular sandy and pebble beach of Paleokastro is located. In the Chania region, two beaches are noteworthy: Falasarna and Frangokastello (near the Venetian fortress).
