Description

Discover the Island of Spinalonga, once a fortress dedicated to the protection of the king of Crete!

Take advantage of this boat excursion to relax and discover the landscape of Crete.

You will leave in the morning and head to Elounda, a small fishing port of the region, where you will embark on a boat for a pleasant cruise around Spinalonga Island in the Mirabella Golf that was once a Venetian fortress and then a city of lepers before being deserted.

Return to Elounda for lunch and some free time. For those who wish, you may also take this time to go swimming.

In the afternoon, continue your visit to Agios Nikolaos, a beach resort town known for its picturesque lake, the Voulismeni. After a guided tour of the town, take some time to walk around the streets and explore the port.
