The small island of Spinalonga is located in the entrance of Elounda harbour, this island fortress was built by the Venetians in 1579 and with a boat connection around every half an hour from the resort it is definitely worth a visit.
Families and couples are attracted to this resort; the area is home to numerous luxury hotels and quality self catering units, the beach is sandy, considered to be one of the best in Crete and offers a wide range of water sport facilities throughout the summer months.
There are also lots of rocky coves along the shoreline to explore or you can swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters.
