A harbour which has wowed generations of visitors
Experience the delights of a typical Crete village with a far from typical harbour which has wowed generations of visitors, on an Elounda holiday from The Co-operative Travel.
Thanks to careful planning, everything in Elounda is close at hand from its main square, from the pretty harbour to narrow streets lined with shops and tavernas.
And just a little further along is a sandy beach that will lure you in every chance you get to enjoy a spot of sunbathing. Dotted along the shoreline in either direction are several pebble coves, whose clear waters are perfect for snorkelling.
Water sports activities are arranged by many of the resort's hotels, which range from total luxury to the more down-to-earth appeal of smaller, family-run establishments.
Elounda's shops will entice you into spending a good few hours browsing for your holiday souvenirs, and then when you've had your fill of retail therapy and perhaps stopped off for a bite to eat at one of the many small cafes, there'll be time to relax before hitting a traditional restaurant or bar, then rounding off the ideal day at one of the resort's vibrant discos.
The harbour-side cafes especially give you a great view of the comings and goings of the fishing boats, one of which could well have landed the catch that becomes that night's supper!
