Maximum luxury! Most of the five star hotels in Greece are situated amongst the lush greenery beside the sea in the Elounda area. Neighbouring Aghios Nikolaos is also a cosmopolitan resort and the view of Spinalonga, the rocky island which dominates Elounda Bay, will let your imagination run free.

Worth seeing:

- The luxury hotels of Elounda which promise absolute privacy, luxury and all the amenities you would expect from five star hotels. The villas and bungalows, private marinas, gourmet restaurants, spas and international standard golf courses make this a unique destination which is famous throughout the world.

- Aghios Nikolaos. The cosmopolitan resort, the "nymph of Mirabello" will captivate you with its mysterious Lake Voulismeni (Vouliagmeni), its exciting night life and the excellent accommodation and beautiful beaches. Aghios Nikolaos marina is of European standard.

- The archaeological Museum of Aghios Nikolaos, which is the second most important and second biggest museum in Crete, after the museum in Iraklion.

- Spinalonga. Straight out of the pages of the novel “The Island”, Spinalonga was where Greek lepers were kept in isolation and is synonymous with social exclusion. The fortress of Spinalonga, one of the most important in Crete, was considered to be impregnable, and was highly effective in controlling ships’ passage through Elounda Bay.
