Plaka (Elounda)

Plaka Elounda is a quiet fishing village located on Crete’s north eastern coast. Only a few years ago, this was one of the island’s hidden gems. Recently, however, a few savvy holidaymakers have been discovering the stunning village and its beautiful coastline, and it’s easy to see why so many continue to return each year. Plaka Elounda’s laid back atmosphere is infectious and you’ll soon be leisurely sipping raki like the locals or lazing for whole days on one of the village’s two beaches.

Plaka Elounda is located in Mirabello Bay, opposite the iconic island of Spinalonga. You can take a boat trip around the island and explore its Roman and Ottoman relics, a perfect way to soak up some of the history and culture of the area. From the luxurious Blue Palace Resort and Spa where you can enjoy a Cretan wine tasting experience, a Greek afternoon tea or just relaxing days at the poolside, to lower key self catered apartments, Plaka Elounda has a great range of accommodation options. For livelier nightlife and a huge range of tours and activities, head to Elounda and Agios Nikolaos, which are both located nearby.
