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.
Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Fortress Spinalonga. Get a sense of the local culture at Malia Minoan Palace and Gournia Minoiki Poli. Explore Elounda's surroundings by going to Milatos Cave (in Milatos), Sitia (Richtis Gorge, Folk museum of Sitia, & more) and Ekklisia Agios Panteleimonas (in Agios Nikolaos). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Vai Beach, stroll through Voulisma Beach, see Flowers of Crete, and explore the activities along Lake Voulismeni.

To see other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Elounda trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Heraklion International Nikos Kazantzakis Airport, Santorini Airport and Karpathos Airport. In May in Elounda, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 21°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
