Elounda

4.1
Long a sleepy fishing settlement on Crete's northern coastline, Elounda today serves as a major travel destination, drawing vacationers with a blend of unspoiled natural scenery and luxury resorts. A popular getaway for international celebrities, the lively town offers visitors plenty to do, from shopping and dining to sailing and diving. The harbor area--the busiest part of Elounda--attracts the biggest crowds, while the residential neighborhoods farther away from the waterfront retain much of their quiet character and small-town atmosphere. Be sure to visit the nearby island of Spinalonga, an uninhabited rock known for its shallow waters and pebbly beaches. Elounda is in Lasithi Prefecture. Use our Greece online road trip planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Elounda.

Where to stay in Elounda

Beachfront hotels in Elounda provide well-appointed rooms and suites with sweeping views of Crete's coastline. Lavish comfort and proximity to the sea come at a steep price, so if you have a tight budget, consider staying farther away from the upscale seafront. A short drive out of town gives you access to affordable lodgings in good-value inns and self-catering apartments. Alternatively, avoid Elounda's big crowds and high prices by booking your stay in nearby Agios Nikolaos, a lively town packed with inexpensive hostels and family-run guesthouses.
