Elounda village is idyllically set opposite Spinalonga and the larger island of Colokitha which is accessible by a causeway.
We are 10 kilometers away from the bustling town of Agios Nikolaos and 5 kilometers from the beautiful village of Plaka.
There is a large sandy manmade public and numerous small bays and secluded rocks where you can swim in the clear blue water.
There are many bars and Tavernas of very high standard in Elounda also lots of souvenir, jewelry and clothing shops too.
You can keep fit with beautiful seaside and mountain track walks.
A boat trip to Spinalonga is a must - the site of an ancient Viennese Fortress and latterly a leper colony, closing in 1957.
This is the second most popular site to visit in Crete (Knossos being the first)and has a application pending for a National Heritage Site.
The general friendliness of the locals is one reason there are so many repeat guests to Elounda, you’re sure of a warm welcome and a very enjoyable holiday!
