Peak Season:

Easter is when tourists start to visit Crete, although the climate is ideal for visiting most of the year. April through to October is the main peak season, with big crowds of tourists booking flights to Crete then. Accommodation is also more expensive so make sure to book that and your flights as early as you can to get discounts. Late spring time and early summer are the best times to visit, with the weather not being too hot and cheap flights to Crete more available. It also means the beaches are less crowded and the weather isn’t too hot that you can’t do hiking activities.

It also has a magical feeling to it as less tourists visit and you can find yourself wondering a beach with very few crowds.

The cheapest flights to Crete are available over the winter and with ideal temperatures makes Crete a great option for some winter sun.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

One of the most convenient ways to get to the city is to jump on one of the many public buses from the airport. Bus number 78 goes straight from Heraklion airport to the city, and shuttles run as frequently as every few minutes for most of the day. You can also opt to get a taxi from outside the airport, although this will be pricey compared to the bus. That said, if there are a few of you travelling that can split the fare, a taxi can be a great choice to quickly get to your hotel. You could also hire a car from the airport, although unless you plan on driving around the different towns Crete has to offer then this could be more of a burden than helpful.
