The ancient city of Olous was situated in the area of Elounda. Some ruins of the city are preserved at the edge of the peninsula, but most of them are below sea level. The ancient history is visible on the seabed, magically connecting the rich past with the fascinating presence. During summer, boats leave the harbour every hour, transporting visitors to the small islet of Spinaloga giving the chance to the passengers to stroll in a deserted leper colony with its Venetian Fortress. Elounda Hotels is a dream location for a luxurious relaxing holiday.
