What to do in Elounda
Elounda is a great destination for those who enjoy living on the wild side as the water sports activities are guaranteed to give you the rush of a lifetime. Set out onto the water in a speed boat which you can hire from the coast and take out to the middle of the ocean. There you can enjoy the magnificent views of the surrounding islands whilst your sail across the glittering sea. To get closer to the water, take a jet ski out to the waters and race across the gentle sea, feeling the refreshing water spraying around you. The waters in Elounda are known for their clean, clear waters so hire some equipment from the beach shop and go snorkelling. This experience will allow you to see the stunning underwater city of Olous. The beach itself is a great place to relax and catch a tan whilst children are able to make as many sandcastles as they desire.
Visit the nearby island of Spinaloga, where you can see their spectacular 16th century castle and get a real feel for the history of Elounda. Head to Heraklion for a great day of shopping where you can pick up many treasures to take home and adore. There is also the Heraklion museum which is a major attraction of the town due to the ancient artefacts that lie within the building.
Hiring a car in Elounda is recommended so that you can see the entire island and travel through the fragrant olive groves to see the spectacular hills amongst a backdrop of blue sea. With a car you can also venture to the Aqua Plus Waterpark in Anopoli which provides great fun for the whole family. There are rides for those who are faint hearted and extreme rides for those in search of a thrill!
Elounda comes to life at night and the main square is the place to be with many modestly priced bars and clubs for you to dance away in.
