The Weather

The weather on Crete is generally mild. The average high temperature in the summer is 89 degrees F (32 degrees C) and it rarely drops below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C) in the winter.

The beach here is wide and sandy, with a swimming season that lasts from May into October. The name "Pacheia Ammos," in fact, means "deep sand." The autumn is very mild, with bright green foliage resulting from the first rains to fall after the long dry summer.
