It is the ideal spot to travel to if you are looking for a Greek sunshine holiday that moves at a much slower pace, but still with plenty of facilities to take advantage of.

The most popular period in Finikounda is the spring to autumn period with temperatures often climbing to the high 20s and lower 30s during these months. However, the resort never gets too busy and that is one of its main pro points. The temperatures drop to an average in the low-teens during the winter months and while there will still be a few things to do in the off-season, Finikounda doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer.
Finikounda is primarily a beach resort destination and as a result, its main attraction is its coastline. The beach in the village itself is sandy, peaceful and ideal for swimming. If you ever wanted to venture further afield for a change of scenery, Finikounda is also close to a larger selection of wonderful beaches. Both sandy and pebbly beaches are accessible up and down the coast. For a fantastic day-trip, you can take a boat ride just across the water to the fabulous Agia Marina resort in Crete.
The village has a campsite, hotels and apartments that fit into every price range. You will find some all-inclusive options as well as half-board and self-catered places too. No matter how you choose to stay in the area, you can guarantee that you will have a good time! Some of the best places to eat are in the restaurants and tavernas down by the beach. Because this is a fishing village, you would be crazy not to try out some of the incredible seafood that they serve up in this place!
