May, June and September it is less crowded. If you go by car morning and afternoon are more enjoyable. Daily boat tours are offered from mid May until mid September from Kissamos. It's only a short stop at Balos. In spring many different flowers are in bloom.
Very crowded! Try to be there as early as possible or later in the evening for a walk. Crowds are even worse in the high season.
Summertime, if you are hiking the trail along the bluffs you'll be in and out of shaded areas. The bugs won't be too bad because of the breeze off the lake.
