Elounda / East Crete

distance distance distance distance distance

From Elounda, the entire East of ▶ Crete reveals itself for exploration.

First of all, there is of course the town and the port of ▶ Agios Nicolaos (8 kms). Boat excursions to the former lepers' island of Spinalonga are on offer at the port several times per day.

Rental cars for trips to many other interesting places in East Crete can e.g. be found at ▶ Eurocars Crete. This provider furthermore delivers your rental car without extra charge straight to the airport so it will also be available for the drives to Elounda and back.
distance Agios Nicolaos: Port and Dikti mountains
The excavation site of Gournia is located some 26 kms south-east by the road to Ierapetra. The best preserved of all Minoan settlements dates from 1,600 to 1,400 B.C. and presents a network of lanes and stairways as well as a small palace.
distance Ierapetra: The fortress by the port's entrance
Kato Mera, the old town of ▶ Ierapetra (42 kms), is of typical Mediterranean flair and has many small shops and workshops where hand-made souvenirs of many kind are on offer.

One should also not miss to have a tour of the town of ▶ Sitia on the north coast (77 kms) and its port.

The promenade that flanks the port was re-designed some years ago, and today ranks as one of Crete's most beautiful ones.
Whenever a ship to Rhodes or other islands leaves from here, the sirens' echos resound from all the mountains which frame the bay of Sitia.
