Porto Elounda Golf and Spa Resort, Crete

On a pristine stretch of beach overlooking the sparkling Bay of Mirabello the location of the Porto Elounda is just stunning. We find ourselves recommending this lovely hotel to families over and over again because it offers so many of the facilities and services that families appreciate on holiday.

Excellent childcare facilities from 4 months, an outstanding Six Senses Spa, not to mention the 9 hole golf course for dad. The beach is clean and safe for little ones and there is plenty to do for all the family with watersports, yacht hire and PADI diving.

An added bonus is the other Elounda SA hotels close by where you can dine to add variety to your holiday with a prebookable dine around package, or just head over for lunch.

The area around Porto Elounda...

Elounda is a beautiful area – quiet yet with villages and towns on your doorstep. Elounda town itself is a couple of minutes away and has its main square as the hub, lined with shops and tavernas and looking out onto the little harbour.

From here you can take a  boat trip to the famous Spinalonga Island, a fortress and former Leper colony famed in the book ‘Small Island’.

Just 12km away you can explore the bustling streets of Aghios Nikolaos.

Crete has numerous archaeological sites too with Knossos being well worth a visit – the myth of the lair of the Minotaur will keep the children entertained!

What will the weather be like in Crete...

Crete is the most southerly of the Greek Islands and therefore on average is warmer and there is less chance of rain than more northerly Greek destinations.

June – September inclusive expect long sunny day with 10 -13 hours sunshine, virtually no rainfall and daily average highs of 26-29 degrees and warm nights rarely dropping below 20 degrees. There is a chance of a mini heatwave with temperatures well over 30 degrees mostly in July or August.

May and October remain sunny with 6 – 8 hours of sunshine, with on average 3-4 days that have some rain in the month (much less likely than Northern Greece) and temperatures consistently in the mid 20’s. The sea should be lovely and warm in October too.
