All About Crete Weather. Weather in Sfakia. 10 Day Weather Forecast in Crete for Chora Sfakion, Chania prefecture. For the local ex-pat residents and holidaymakers. Sfakiá (Greek: Σφακιά) has a long history for the independent minded Sfakians who fought against the Venetians, the Ottomans and were leaders in the Cretan Resistance of World War 2. The Sfakians' temperment matches the rugged nature of the area of gorges and ravines that lead down to pristine beaches. It is a fascinating and colourful area to visit or live. Hora Sfakion is the most well known small port on Crete's Southwest coast. Holiday Weather Tip: During the hot days of Summer and Autumn, while in Crete wear loose garments so that your skin can breathe. Be minimalistic in your apparel, not just on holiday. Go bare foot where possible. Do use the best sun tan lotions (E45 recommended in the clean, clear air of Sfakia) to protect your skin. Sunbathe in the cooler hours, and take a siesta from 3pm-6pm like the locals.
