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.

Get out of town with these interesting Elounda side-trips: Spas & Wellness (in Sissi), Domaine Paterianakis Cretan Winery (in Heraklion), Winery Stilianou (in Kounavi) and Milatos Cave (in Milatos). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Lato, look for gifts at Maria & Vangelis - Unique Handmade Creations, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Voulismeni.
