Elounda at Crete Island Is Our Favourite Seaside Goddess
As mythical as the Minoan legacy and as seductive as its magnificent and secret beaches, Elounda is a dream destination.
From the mythical Spinalonga, the village of Plaka and the kind people of Agios Nikolaos to the luxurious Domes of Elounda and Domes Aulūs Elounda, Elounda is Crete’s Neverland!
Located in Eastern Crete, north of Agios Nikolaos and south of the seaside resort of Plaka, Elounda was once a picturesque fishing village in the lovely Mirabello Bay which has blossomed into a globally recognized luxury destination known for its exclusive resorts and jet set lifestyle
Yet, there is a side to Elounda that many don’t get to see, offering an authentic glimpse into the island’s tumultuous and constantly changing history, along with its time-honored traditions and the customs and lifestyles of its people.
