Map

Crete is an island located in the Mediterranean Sea. It's the largest of the Greek islands and was the centre of the earliest civilization in Europe, the Minoans, of over 4700 years ago. Crete is a highly enjoyable holiday destination, with tourists arriving throughout the year for the warm weather, beautiful beaches and luxurious resort hotels scattered around the island.

Especially popular with tourists are the Archaeological sites of early Minoan ruins and the Venetian Castle at Rethymno. Along with sightseeing, visitors may also enjoy spending time at the Palm Beach of Vai or indulging in water sports such as sailing, diving or snorkelling.

Best time to take a vacation to Heraklion

The summer is the peak travel period, with both a rise in population and prices. If you wish to miss the summer crowds but still arrive in time to enjoy wonderful weather conditions, then the best time to visit is during the fall. Depending on when you're visiting the island, you may be able to participate in the Chestnut Festival in October or watch the St. Minas Parade in November. The weather in Crete is mild year-round, and in the early fall temperatures tend to remain around 20°C during the daytime, dropping to the mid-teens at night.
