About the location
Once a down-to-earth fishing village, Elounda has blossomed into one of Crete's premier luxury resorts, pulling in a cosmopolitan brand of clientele. Like nearby Aghios Nikolaos, it's got a killer location, with the Bay of Mirabello on one side and hills blanketed in almond and olive groves on the other. A lot of the village's old-fashioned charm has been preserved, particularly in the main square, where you'll find a smattering of Greek tavernas and little shops, and a pretty church looking out over the harbour. Out in the bay is the mystical island of Spinalonga, a former leper colony and the subject of Victoria Hislop's best-seller, The Island. The ruins of its town and Venetian fortress are ripe for exploring - as are the calm waters around the Spinalonga peninsula, which hide the remains of the ancient city of Olous.
