Here natural beauty serenades in magnificent bays with crystalline waters, such as Mirabello Gulf or Korfos bay, and small villages and towns, including the picturesque Plaka and the small town of Elounda or Schisma as called by the locals. A wonder just waiting to be discovered…
Local Highlights & Hidden Gems
Experience the unreal beauty of the lagoon of Korfos and the narrow strip of land that connects the peninsula of Spinalonga to Crete. The picturesque village of Plaka evokes the feel that time has stopped here some centuries ago, while, just opposite, the imposing Venetian fortress of Kalydon, most commonly known as Spinalonga island, is a magnet for adventurers and nature lovers. Once used as a leper colony, Spinalonga is still a source of inspiration for Greek and international novelists and filmmakers. Let it whisper its secrets and catch you under its spell. For more pristine natural beauty, the island of Kolokytha is famous for its crystalline waters and the Byzantine church of St. Phocas. To venture beyond the obvious and experience the wonders of Elounda, ask our concierge to curate a custom sailing or yacht excursion, just for you.
