Summer in Crete is almost here

You do not need to check the room temperature to know. You can feel it, you can smell it. The change is everywhere. Nature has transformed as spring has arrived in full force. Yes, there may be some faint hints of winter but that's all they are, faint. Everything is more colourful, more aromatic. Wherever you look, people are happier and more relaxed.

Summer in Crete is almost here

I know there is a lot to do. All these heavy winter clothes must now be put away. This is the time to prepare for the upcoming summer. I do not mention spring because here in Crete it does not last for too long. It is only during the evening that the cool breeze reminds you that it is not summer yet. Otherwise, the sea is warm enough even for the less brave such as myself.

Evenings are much warmer. This is the time to get out and enjoy Crete by night. How you will enjoy it, that is all up to you. From a light snack, to a luxurious dinner or just a drink. Or maybe a walk along the beach is all you'll ever need. The options are endless.

So, summer in Crete is approaching fast. Where are you?

Enjoy Crete by night
