Crowded, small, next to the main square with motor boats around all the time. Slimy pebbles in the water, not good for a nice swim. A place to walk by. Check the beaches on Kalydon island instead.

Thank you for your review! Its a pity you didn't get to enjoy Elounda beach's crystal clear waters. We hope you eventually had a nice swim in one of our numerous beaches in Agios Nikolaos.

We went here to visit Spinalonga but it was already quite late when we arrived. Elounda is a small town with a nice little harbour. Didn't stay long.
