: Aghios Nikolaos
Elounda is a fantastic area of east Crete, along the sea, but with also gorgeous mountains views. There is all you can wish to spend the best holidays ever: 'blue flag' beaches, water sports, local tavernas, typical 'kafenion' ( cafés), seafood restaurants, bars, pubs, disco nights, shops, souvenirs, jewellers, bookshop and newsagents, supermarkets, latest fashions stores, all day dining, departures from the famous island of Spinalongua. Elounda is only a short drive from the Cretan 'Saint Tropez': Aghios Nikolaos, where you will discover (day and night) the Cretan way of life in the summer! The pedestrian streets are famous for their shops and restaurants, market on Wednesdays will give you a taste of local products and maybe you will find time to visit Kritsa only 15mn drive from Aghios, one of the most exquisite Cretan village ever seen.
visit the Lassithi region, the monasteries, the oil farm, the archaeological sites so close to Elounda.
