Your Destination

Situated on the waterfront of Mirabello Bay in the charming town of Elounda, Elounda Orama 4* is within walking distance from a sand and pebble beach and gazes out to magnificent sea views. The ideally situated hotel is within 5 km of Spinalonga Castle and Plaka Beach, and is 10 km from Lake Voulismeni. Jet off to an earthly paradise, and experience the beautiful island of Crete - expect turquoise sea, sandy beaches and amazing scenery along with cultural marvels and ancient buildings.

The town of Aghios Nikolaos, the capital of the Lasithi province, is a cosmopolitan tourist resort which has maintained its traditional feel to a great extent, especially around the lake. It's a wonderful town which offers everything from shopping, tavernas, restaurants, and traditional Greek culture, including a number of archaeological museums and sites nearby. Special sites include the sunken ancient city of Olounda, parts of which can be seen underwater. Visit several beautiful and undiscovered coves and beaches, an aquarium, a water park, and a golf course - all at under a 30-minute distance!

The chapel of Aghios Nikolaos lies on the port's peninsula. This is where small boats set off to visit the UNESCO protected islet of Spinalonga, home to the Venetian castle from Victoria Hislop's best-selling novel "The Island". The town is also connected to the Cyclades (Melos), Cassos, Carpathos, Cos, Rhodes and the port of Piraeus.
