Elounda was originally a small fishing town on the Mirabello Bay, on the island of Crete. Although fishing still forms part of life in this picturesque area, tourism has taken over as the main industry of Elounda. It is part of the municipality Agios Nikolaos and is a popular destination for European tourists, hosting many hotels including several 5* facilities. Elounda is also the closest major town to the former leper colony of Spinalonga.
Agios Nikolaos is the capital of the county Lasithi and is located at the Mirabello Bay, north-east Crete. It is only 40 mins away from the international airport of Heraklion. Thanks to its geographical position, the town is well protected from strong winds allowing for sea sports and swimming nearly all year round. Despite its small size, it provides all the necessary amenities such as banks, supermarkets, shops, hospitals, public pools and tennis courts, yacht marina, harbour, cinema, theatre, gyms, a golf course and schools ranging from nurseries to 6-level high school. Additionally, the microclimate of the area is one of the best in Greece, with temperatures rarely exceeding 30c in summer or falling below 15c in wintertime. This wonderful dry climate together with the natural beauty of the area have attracted many high class hotels to operate here.
