Sea Temperature May


May be a very naive question but ....... is the sea temp last 2 weeks of May warm enough for comfortable swimming? Also is the sea in Elounda area fairly calm? Thank you in anticipation.

My wife and i were there last May 15th for one week,swam in the sea most days. Swimming pool was much colder. The sea is, sorry was pretty calm with just a small swell on a couple of days. There are two beaches the town beach and another smaller one near the causeway. Do not worry yourselves about the sea or sea temps;. You will love Elounda and every thing about the place. It was our first time there and we are now totally in love with the town,the people,and the food.

Hi there

I guess it depends what you are used to. It'll be warmer than the sea temps anywhere around the Uk coast for sure, but it gradually warms up, with September being the warmest time for the water. I've swum in Crete as early as mid April and although it's a bit frisky, it's fine once you've been in for a couple of minutes.
