Fishing, Cycling, Paddling

Hello all

I've been to West and Central Crete before (loved it) but never to Elounda and looking at staying for 2 weeks at the beginning of June (Plaka area). Sorry about all the questions but .. is it worth bringing a fishing rod and/or is it easy to hire a bike and or a kayak there?

Many thanks

Hi Steve

There are lots of boats that take you out on fishing trips from the harbour area, but not sure if you can hire a rod in the village itself, (hopefully someone else will be able to tell you ) My brother in law loves fishing and during his holiday, brought a cheap rod ...and then left it or donated it to someone else before he left.

Heres a link to Kayaking you may find useful :

With regards to cycling....I cant find anything on the web, but I do know that there is a bike hire place between Agios and Elounda ( just near to the Candia park village)

Hope that helps :-)

Thanks so much - you've been very helpful. I'll access the kayaking web site this evening. I've got a nice travel rod which I think I'll now bring anyway. I'll track down the bike shop when I get there - thanks again.

Steve
