Elounda Crete

Price From: £15.00

The beautiful town of Elounda, situated on the North East Coast of Crete, is very popular with tourists due to its luxury seaside resorts, and it's proximity to the former leper colony of Spinalonga, made famous by the novel 'The Island', by Victoria Hislop.  I visited out of season, to explore the little fishing villages, off-shore islands and tranquil bays and paint this view of the harbour.  If you drive up to the small mountain behind the town, you can see the whole of Mirabello Bay and all the way to the eastern tip of Crete, on a clear day.
