The Winds of Crete (there is a good book of that title by David McNeil Doren) are many and varied: they come from different directions at different times of year, and although the meltemi, which blows from the north, is of course strongest on the north coast, there is nowhere on Crete that can be guaranteed completely windless.

Crete is well-known for its gusty winds and in fact, there is even a book that has been written about them. However, they are usually down-graded to a pleasant breeze at this time of the year and mostly through the summer months. Not this year unfortunately – they have been really strong and consistently so throughout the day.

The wind statistics are based on real observations from the weather station at Crete North Buoy. Hi - we visited Crete a few years ago and stayed in Elounda at the other end of the island - but we're put off by the relentless (strong) wind.

I appreciate they have the meltemi, but is it always as windy in Chania?We would be visiting late July/early August. Thanks.

So we gave way and let ourselves be driven along. Winds of Crete. David MacNeil Doren. Murray, - Crete (Greece) - pages. 1 Review.

From inside the book. What people are saying - Write a review. User Review - Flag as inappropriate. A quite moving account of a couple resident in Crete for six years. I have 'definitely' decided not 4/5(1). Elafonisi is very beautiful but again the winds stop any nice days before mid June.

Dont bother taking a holiday before mid June as it can still be cold due to the winds. Crete is an Island so.
