Elounda

Elounda holidays

Lapped by sparkling sapphire waters, Elounda’s one of Crete’s most luxurious holiday resorts. It sits pretty on the island’s east coast, with five-star hotels and a Blue Flag beach just the start of its best bits. Meander down quaint whitewashed streets to the harbour – this is the place to eat, drink and be merry. Yamas!

Sunbathe and sightsee

Golden grains blanket Elounda Beach, with loungers lined up ready for you to relax. A little further out you’ll find two more beaches – peaceful Driros Beach and pebbly Plaka Beach. But you can mix sunbathing with sightseeing here. Venture to Spinalonga Island, a former leper colony. On a calm day, in the water between the islands, you can spot the ruins of the ancient city of Olous.

Nights on the town

Elounda’s got a real vibe about it when the sun goes down. The harbour and neighbouring square is where you’ll be met by lively Greek tavernas and friendly bars. Enjoy the view of luxury yachts glinting in the water from one of the fresh seafood eateries. Afterwards, expect a tipple of local fiery raki.
