Summer temperatures in Greece: A Monthly Overview

You have to know that in April the climate is pleasant, with little rainfall and temperatures up to 23° while in May there is sunny but not insufferable weather. Temperatures are up to 25°. June and July are the hottest months of the Cretan summer and that’s why many tourists prefer to spend their holidays then. There is no chance of rainfall and the temperatures are quite high making those months ideal for swimming, hiking, and rest. You will face temperatures up to 23°-40°. 

August is also a very hot month without rainfalls and maybe the busiest month of the summer, possibly because also most Greeks prefer to spend their Vacation time then. The temperatures are ranging from 23°-38° with a possibility of pleasant winds (Meltemi) that are normal at that time of the year and are generated by the Cretan Sea during this particular month.

 September is also a sunny month with temperatures of 20°-28° and swimming is pleasant for that time of the year because the sea is warm. Even during October, the sea is warm and pleasing and there is a low possibility of rain. Whenever you decide to spend your holidays in Agia Marina you will face no problems with the weather,  however, you need to know that most of the Hotels and Apartments in the area are closed in winter months (November-March) due to increased rainfalls and low tourist interest that time of the year. Despina Studios can accommodate special occasions and large groups upon request.
