Life’s a Beach
Beach holidays in Elounda are perfect for couples and family holidays with crystal clear waters and a soft sand and shingle beach with plenty of room to pitch your parasol and relax in the sunshine. For the active explorers, why not try your hand at snorkelling and see the underwater city of Olous? There are a number of waterside tavernas serving snacks and refreshments to keep you going throughout the day while you make the most of the water sport activities on offer. If you’re after that perfect secluded spot in the sun, venture a little further to the sandy beaches in Damnoni.
Elounda is an interesting beach resort to explore; not only does it have an ancient city below the clear waters, there is also a fantastic lagoon leading to the breath-taking island of Spinaloga, a 16th century fortress that later became a sanatorium for Cretan lepers in the early to mid 1900s. For other great days out, head to the ancient Minoan palace at Knossos, spend a day shopping in Heraklion, or why not take the kids to the Heraklion museum.
A good way to explore the beautiful island is to hire a car; why not follow the coastline and see where it takes you! Head over to the bustling resort of Aghios Nikolaos or why not take the kids to one of the water parks on the island such as: Aqua Plus Waterpark in Hersonissos or Watercity in Anopoli – fun for the whole family on your holiday! Elounda has a bustling square that comes alive at night, why not head to the square or the harbour for a relaxing meal and simply watch the world go by.
