Is Elounda for us?

05 June 2005 - 02:18 PM

Hi Everyone - GREAT FORUM! :)

I'm planning a holiday to Crete on 1st July for 2 weeks. After LOTS of research I've finally decided on Elounda.

We're a couple approaching 30 who like going to restaurants and bars but we're not really going on holiday to party into the early hours! I'm hoping we can bus it into Ag Nikolaos and get a taxi back for some nights when we fancy a bit more nightlife but we'd like Elounda to be lively and varied enough for eating out and drinking during a 2 week holiday.

Also plan to hire a car. Would love to visit Chania but guess this is too much of a drive for a daytrip? Wondered if Rethymno would be reachable though, and if so how long a drive would it be?

Also, can anyone advise if we could visit Kato Zakros or Makrigialos as a daytrip.

We also like walking to local beaches / villages during the daytime - are there good walks and quiet beaches around Elounda?

One last question (for now probably!!) - planning on staying at the Irene Apartments in Elounda - any firsthand reviews?....

Sorry for so many questions!!.....but advice on any of the above would be great!
