Whether you’re into chilled-out breaks soundtracked by the sea or like to add a sense of adventure to your holidays with exploration or water sports, you’ll fit right in when you’re in Elounda. It’s a serene kind of place but there’s a brilliant marina, so excursions are easy to arrange. You can also explore the rest of Crete by car, or visit the nearby island of Santorini.
It may be fairly peaceful here, but Elounda holidays aren’t just for adults, they can be family friendly too. The main beach is easily accessible, with lovely, soft sand and water that’s made for paddling. Plus there’s a brilliant waterpark not too far away.
