About Location: Elounda
Elounda is a slow paced, picturesque, fishing village, blending ancient memories with contemporary living and mouth watering Cretan gastronomy with crystal clear secluded beaches and warm hearted local people. Its small harbour with its traditionally painted boats is surrounded by shops, taverns and cafes where you can sit and gaze a slow paced world, going by. You will experience that carnal time does not apply here! Closest sandy beach to your villa is in Elounda, only 2km away, a pleasant five minutes drive with your car. It has the “Blue Flag” award from the European Union for its clear waters and very safe for children to swim in. Elounda has been a refuelling station during the Second World War for the allied forces. Elounda is located in east Crete, north of Agios Nikolaos and south of the seaside resort of Plaka. Elounda was once a picturesque fishing village in the lovely Mirabello Bay. The inhabitants lived from farming, fishing, salt extraction from the Venetian saltpans, and emery mining. In the hills around Elounda is found a mineral unique to Greece, “akonopetra” or whetstone, a type of fine emery used to make whetstones and emery paper to hone tools used in many different jobs. The emery of Elounda had long been known in Europe by the name of “Turkey stones” or “Naxos stone”.
Once discovered by tourism, Elounda developed into a resort famous for its beautiful scenery and luxury hotels which are still being built in the area. It is said to be the place with the most five-star hotels in Greece. The main beach of Elounda is right next to the harbour and car park, in the centre of Elounda. The beach is organised, with umbrellas, sun loungers and a lifeguard, while all around you will find cafeterias, restaurants and hotels. The east beach of Elounda; this beach is at the east end of Elounda, near the isthmus leading to the Kolokytha Peninsula. It¢s an organised beach but smaller than the main one.
Kolokytha Beach – You can get to the Kolokytha Peninsula by crossing the narrow isthmus with the windmills and walking along the dirt track to the small church of Agios Loukas. The road is passable for most cars, as long as they have good clearance and are not overloaded. A small path after the church leads to the small beach of Kolokytha. It¢s only a short walk away so it¢s not tiring to get to. The beach isn¢t organised and the only shade here is under two or three tamarisk trees. It¢s fairly empty if you come before noon or after 3 in the afternoon. In between, the tour boats come from Spinalonga and the peace and quiet is broken by loud music. To the left (northwest) of the beach, where the boats moor, there are only flat rocks where you may meet a few nudists.
