I found the best time to go is August, i went in 2000 and for 2 weeks we had temperatures of 120 degress C every day and we didnt see a drop of rain, are you over there now, or is the post been on for a while. If you are there i am so jealous.

Where do you usually stay and if you there now where you staying?

The magic figure for temperatures in July/August is 29 Degrees C. Having been there in the last two years (end of July-beginning of August) this figure seems about right-unless these years were unusually cool. Obviously if you stand in the sun it goes to around 35-38 degrees C.

This year in early august we had heavy fog in the morning (sea mist), and I have pictures taken of the beach dwellers standing around in the fog with their cossies on!

Interesting enough, temperatures in Egypt in March were higher than Crete in Mid-summer but 30 degrees was about right for us.

Quite right Steve. 120C is above water's boiling point!

100F is approximately 38C and I am doubtful if the temperature in Plakias has ever exceeded 45C (113F). Putting a thermometer in the sun is a pointless exercise as temperature in this context means air temperature. Ideally it should be measured in a Stevenson (or is it Stephenson?) screen or at least out of direct sunlight.

And lit by the golden rays of the rising sun it looked spectacular.
