Elounda

Elounda, located in east Crete, 10 km north of Agios Nikolaos and 65 km from Heraklion is a renowned tourism resort, famous for its beautiful scenery and luxury hotels. The once picturesque fishing village in Mirabello Bay faces the dramatic Spinalonga Peninsula.

Having a protected coastline, shaded beaches, crystal clear seas, and a stylish environment, Elounda is ideal for people who want a seaside holiday in a place which is neither too busy nor too isolated.

Family-friendly hotels and tavernas, romantic venues ideal for couples, ample shops for leisurely browsing, and a good range of bars and eateries make Elounda a great all-rounder. Elounda’s main square is the hub of resort life, looking out onto the stylish harbour, edged with lively bars and cafés which becomes a hive of activity after dark. Just beyond the square theres a sandy beach thats purpose built for sunbathing, and along the rocky shoreline are several pebble coves – perfect for crystal clear snorkelling. There are watersports centres offered at several hotels and everything is surrounded by stunning scenery.

Also famous is the small island of Spinalonga in the entrance of Elounda harbour. A Venetian fortress built in 1579 now uninhabited was once used as a leper colony. There is a boat connection to Spinalonga about every half an hour.  Elounda is the perfect recipe for the perfect holiday.
