Hi there

I think Elounda would suit you well - it's busy albeit laid back, having said that, visitor numbers usually start to decrease once you get past the final weekend of August. Weather should still be lovely, dry, warm and hot, and the sea still warm. Elounda has plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and tavernas as well as a decent, sandy beach. It also has great views across the Gulf of Mirabello towards the Spinalonga peninsula. It also tends to be rather more adult-orientated although there will be people of all ages there.
