On Crete’s eastern coast within striking distance of the resorts of Aghios Nikolaos, Hersonnisos, Malia and Heraklion, Elounda holidays are the perfect holiday package all wrapped up: the high-quality accommodation is modern and comfortable; there’s plenty going on and plenty to do; the beaches are good for swimming, snorkelling and diving, and the views are fabulous – just perfect for settling back and letting all life’s stresses and strains drift away on the harbour breeze.
Fishing boats are still a feature of this pretty place, sailing in and out all day while, just across the bay, the hauntingly beautiful island of Spinalonga, beckons you to visit.
Elounda’s heart beats in the main square, fringed by restaurants, shops, bars and traditional tavernas, where you can make like a local and just watch the world go by, and where, after dark the party mood picks up. A favourite among the Greek glitterati, Elounda was the setting for the film “Who Pays the Ferryman“.
Accommodation in the area comes in the form of luxury hotels along the seafront and more laid back, equally enjoyable self-catering holiday resorts which are ideal for families and younger visitors to. With sandy beaches for sunbathing and watersports galore, as well as pretty pebbly coves ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving, Elounda is the perfect choice for a holiday that has a bit of everything, suitable for all tastes and pockets.
Lively in high season, the resort enjoys less frenetic, more relaxed times during spring and early autumn. Whenever you choose to visit, lovely Elounda will not disappoint.
