Hersonisoss, Crete<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Hersonisoss has two settings: hot and very warm. One is the summer, the other is the winter. No prizes for guessing which one is which. Hersonisoss has something for everyone; itâs got the blazing sun for a beach holiday and just enough archaeological meat for a history buff to sink their teeth into. The history takes the form of ruins from the Roman Byzantine Empire and remains of a temple to Britomartis, Minoan (Crete) Goddess of mountains and hunting.
Away from the history, Crete is an island so, if you fancy a beach holiday, thereâs plenty of it and, if you fancy a different beach, thereâs day cruises to the nearby island of Dia. The resort of Hersonisoss is situated on the north flat looking over both the Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas.
Due to its location, Hersonisoss sees a lot of sunlight, 12 hours of it during the summer in fact. During those 12 hours holiday-goers can expect temperatures of 27°C (81°F) as the highest. Surprisingly (considering Crete is surrounded by water) thereâs low humidity in the summer, so that means that the moisture in the air wonât be enough to affect the temperature much.
That much heat and that little moisture will mean your skin will bear the brunt of the UV rays, so be warned. Hersonisoss has a high UV level in the summer, so far as to reach the highest range: 11 (extreme).
Night time will see the temperature crawl back to 17°C (63°F), so youâll be nicely warm for a night stroll by the sea or along the promenades.
Summer is Creteâs dry season and so very little rain tends to be forecast. Instead you can expect the sky to look like you see on all those postcards and brochures: clear blue with the occasional wisp of cloud.
The seas are some of the selling points of a holiday in Crete and Hersonisossâ 25°C (77°F) waters make it easy to see why.
15°C (59°F) doesnât sound very warm, but if you remember this is the winter weâre talking about itâs not so bad. Thatâs the warmest Hersonisoss will average during the winter season, the minimum you can expect is 7°C (45°F) which is pretty nippy for Crete. The island is also no stranger to the occasional bout of frost too and donât be startled if it snows. Itâs not as common as say, Finland, but itâs been known to happen.
Winter is the rainy season and all that pent up water from the summer hits now, tipping over the 160mm mark and keeping it consistent with over 10 days a month being rained on.
Still, thereâs no reason letting a little rain spoil your holiday. Whatâs the point? You get wet; you dry. With UV index being safely in the â3â range (low) itâs safe to peruse the whole town all day without looking over your shoulder at the burning skin.
Sure the days are shorter but not by much and, if you fancy a swim, keep in mind that the sea temperature is around 16°C (61°F). Youâre best having a paddle before you dive in head first.
