Elounda is situated in the North East of Crete, a few miles North
from the popular resort of Agios Nikolaos.
There's a nice beach, and fairly quiet too.
Watersports if that's your thing!
Or a walk over to the big island of Spinalonga for
some great views of the town.
But a real must is a boat trip over to the small island of Spinalonga
which used to be a leper colony!
It's a pleasant half an hour each way on the boat.
The leper colony is now just ruins.
The Venetians are long gone but left their fort to be explored.
You need about an hour to explore.
There are some great views.
And then relax....
....under a tree perhaps?
