Long a sleepy fishing settlement on Crete's northern coastline, Elounda today serves as a major travel destination, drawing vacationers with a blend of unspoiled natural scenery and luxury resorts.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Flowers of Crete. Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Spinalonga Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Eklektos Bookshop and Chochlakies Gorge. Change things up with these side-trips from Elounda: Agios Nikolaos (Moni Faneromeni, Katharo Plataeu, &more), Galini Beach (in Achlia) and Kritsa Gorge (in Kritsa). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Ieros Naos Agios Konstandinou kai Elenis, don't miss a visit to Monastery of Kremasta, enjoy the sand and surf at Elounda Beach, and get outside with Sarakina Gorges.

To find reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Elounda sightseeing planning website.
