Hiking / walking / jogging / Nordic walking

Directly from the hotel are some very beautiful nature trails that lead into the surrounding hills, with wonderful views. Even the island of Spinalonga offers wonderful walking tours. Nearby, there are huge natural canyons for impressive hiking. We are always there for advice and MARTIN BIKE can offer guided walks.


There is a good artificial court nearby which you can hire, or even book tennis lessons with a professional coach (45 min € 25).


Each week a diving taster session takes place in the hotel pool. Everyone can participate here for free. This is organized by a professional dive center, Blue Dolphin.
Blue Dolphin has a great selection of diving courses.

Boat Trips

From Agios Nikolaos or Elounda, several small boats travel daily to the island of Spinalonga. Of particular interest to families with children, is an underwater panoramic catamaran – an underwater world experience almost like diving. Just outside the Hotel Sunlight is the bus stop to Agios Nikolaos or Elounda. From Agios Nikolaos you can reach other beautiful beaches, small villages and mountain gorges for hiking by bus. One can also easily travel to the island's capital, Heraklion, with connections to western Crete.

Rent a Car

You can book a rental car at short notice directly with the hotel. A small car including insurance (fully comprehensive) is € 40 per day. Additional days can be booked at a lower rate.
Suggestions for excursions, maps, information and tips can be sought from the bike team.
