Head to the private beach club for a day of family fun or drop the children off at the certified crèche and Kids’ Club and enjoy some alone time. Had enough lounging? Elounda is fast establishing itself as one of Crete’s premier resorts and the eating and shopping options in the nearby town reflect this. Keeping plenty of its charming heritage, expect to find authentic small eateries and traditional shops. Alternatively, head to the nearby Spinalonga island, which is a former leper colony and provided the inspiration for Victoria Hislop’s book “The Island”.
