Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s throughout the summer months whilst the period between Autumn to Spring drops to the low teens. The summer period is also when most of the businesses dedicated to tourists are open and when the beach is at its vibrant best - so don’t miss out!
One of the biggest attractions to this place is its beautiful main square. A coffee or snack whilst sat outside under the shade of the eucalypts is an extremely pleasant and joyous experience.

On either side of the harbour you will find this resort’s beaches with plenty of space to chill out and soak up some Cretan sun.
