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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Elounda: Sitia (Sitia Beach, Erimoupolis Beach, & more), Milatos (Milatos Cave & Milatos Beach) and Itanos Beach (in Lasithi Mesa). There's lots more to do: step off the mainland to explore Fortress Spinalonga, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, get engrossed in the history at Archaeological Museum of Sitia, and don't miss a visit to Sunken City of Olous.

For traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Elounda trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Heraklion International Nikos Kazantzakis Airport, Santorini Airport and Karpathos Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
