The first beaches of Elounda that you meet after Lenika, as you come from Agios Nikolaos, are the beaches in front of the famous hotels of Elounda at position Pigaidakia. Every hotel that respects its international fame here has its own harbor, where yachts can stop. Next to the piers there are small sandy beaches which offer all kinds of opulence and luxury services. Access to most them is not allowed, although there are generally no private beaches in Greece. Unfortunately, the Greek law has a small window that says "if there is a license for a private harbor, then the beach next to it is private" and hotels have used this setting.
