Your Destination

The Blue Palace is wonderfully situated in Elounda, on the north-west facing coast of Crete. This luxurious beachfront resort boasts beautiful views of the relics of Spinalonga Island. Some of Elounda's highlights include:

Spinalonga Island - The small island just across the bay from Elounda is covered in enchanting ruins, emblematic churches, and colourful reconstructed storefronts.

The Palace of Knossos - The magnificent Palace of Knossos was one of the most significant discoveries of the 19th century. One thousand interlocking rooms, which over four millennia ago served as artist's workshops, wine processing centres, and places for worship and adoration, have been sublimely reconstructed. Blue dolphins adorn the walls of the Queen's Megaron, while griffins pose regally against a crimson backdrop in the Throne Room.

Archanes - This historic village, acclaimed as one of the most exceptionally restored in Europe, is filled with Venetian mansions and picturesque cafes where simple wooden chairs offer a place to enjoy spanakopita and stuffed grape leaves beneath blue striped awnings.

 Panagia Kera - Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, her mother Saint Anna, and Saint Anthony, the interior of this radiant sanctuary is covered with scenes from their lives. Situated on the arid hills just outside Kritsa, the sand-hued Adobe church rests beneath towering cypress trees.

Ancient Olous - Once a thriving city of over thirty thousand inhabitants, Olous mysteriously sank beneath the salty waves over twelve centuries ago. Experts speculate that it was a great landslide or earthquake that caused the event, resulting in the fascinating underwater setting explored by snorkelers today.
