Crete Area Information

Elounda, East Crete

Elounda is in North East Crete about 10 km away from Agios Nikolaos. The impressive panorama of the Mirabello Bay is a contributing factor to why most of the really luxury hotels like Elounda Beach or Blue Palace were built in the well protected Bay. The offshore islets act as wave breakers

Elounda itself is nothing out of the ordinary. It has a nice location with a small promenade in front of the harbour with good tavernas. The luxury hotels have taken over all the sandy beaches leaving only shingle open to the public.

For decent shopping (not tourist kitsch) it is best to go to Agios Nikolaos. Boats can be hired out and there are boat trips to Spinalonga Island, a former leper colony.
