Highlights

  • Done in English
Take the coastal road north until you come to the pretty village of Elounda from where you can take the boat to the island of Spinalonga – a former leper colony.

With houses and churches that are more or less well preserved, you will see evidence of Venetian occupation in the form of the fortress that surrounds the abandoned village.



After a walking tour of the village, you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mirabello, followed by a barbecue lunch.

On the way back, you will stop at the small, charming and touristic town of Aghios Nicolaos, with its picturesque Port and its so-called "bottomless lake", for a delicious coffee break!
