Winter Holidays in Crete

Mirthios, Plakias, Crete

Crete is well known as a perfect holiday destination for the summer while the winter season remains unknown to the wider public. Between November and March the tour operators leave the island at peace and that's exactly the time when many people are looking for their holidays.

The climate of Crete can be compared with the Canary Islands of Spain, South Portugal, Malta and Cyprus. Winter in Crete offers many sunny days, sometimes broken up by dark clouds or a short tropical rain, but afterwards you can enjoy the most attractive face of Crete, its nature that offers you a flowery fields, mountains ending on the coastline and spectacular sunset scenes of amazing colours.

Flights to Crete in Winter

Although there are no direct flights to Crete during the winter season, all it takes is flying to Athens or Thessaloniki and then taking a domestic flight to either Chania or Heraklion. Both cities also have ferry connections with Piraeus on the mainland. Analytically, there are daily flights throughout the year to and from Athens with Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines to Heraklion & Chania.

Both airlines offer cheaper fares if you book in advance. They also offer cheap add-on fares if you book them through flights from/to another country, e.g. London/Athens/Chania. Look out for special winter offers on off-peak winter dates - usually in November and January/February/March - when prices start from around 30 Euros one way, including all taxes, between Crete and Athens:
