Elounda SA Hotels & Resorts, Elounda, Crete, 720 53
Overlooking the Sea of Crete and with a comfortable Mediterranean climate, Elounda SA Hotels & Resorts is the ideal destination for sun seekers and holidaymakers looking for peace and quiet.
This modern seaside spa resort is a one-hour drive from Crete's Heraklion airport. Elounda is a collection of three villages, Ano (upper) and Kato (lower) Elounda sitting above the port, Skisma, nestled at the head of the bay of Elounda with a view of the beautiful Venetian castle on the island of Kalydon, the famous “Spinalonga”.
Since ancient times, this island was the site of a fortress that protected the port of Olous from marauding pirates, while in the 20th century it was turned into a leprosy colony. Opposite the island is Plaka, a fishing village with traditional seaside homes and openings that play stage every summer to the “Plakiana” traditional music festival, and whose tavernas serve the freshest fish throughout the year. Diving and snorkelling schools in the area offer swimmers the chance to see the remnants of underwater metropolises, while the ancient archaeological site Agios Nikolaos is 15km away and the historical island of Spinalonga is a boat ride away.
