Elounda

Elounda holidays

Lose yourself in the rich blue sea. Jump in and get a snapshot of how Elounda does things. It’s an upmarket little resort along the island’s emerald-swept east coast, with some rather unique highlights. Tuck into the catch of the day as you pull up a pew in a local taverna.

The perfect pick

On a calm day, the mystical lost city of Olous and its submerged ruins can be seen through the waters. According to Greek legend, Elounda Bay’s the home of the mermaid goddess Britomartis. If you don't spot the flash of her tail in the sea, she’s in the souvenir shops.

Sublime setting

The resort promises sandy shores for lazing in the sun, clear warm sea with water sports on offer and coastal trails to more staggering views. There's still a traditional fishing village charm about the place, but luxury yachts also glint in the harbour, alongside fresh seafood eateries.
