11 Reviews

  • Location: Heraklion, Greece
  • Duration: 8 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2462SPINO

From the pretty village of Elounda, reached by traveling the northern coastal route, take a boat to the island of Spinalonga. This former leper colony includes preserved houses and churches, and a strong Venetian influence in the form of a fortress surrounding the village. Swim in the crystal blue water before enjoying a BBQ lunch.

Take the north coastal road until you arrive at the pretty village of Elounda from where you will take a boat to the island of Spinalonga - a former leper colony.

With houses and churches that are more of less well preserved, see the proof of the Venetian occupation in the form of the fortress surrounding the abandoned village.

After a walking tour of the village, visitors have the opportunity to swim in the crystal blue water of the Gulf of Mirabello, followed by a BBQ lunch.

On the way back, stop at the small, charming and touristic town of Aghios Nicolaos, with its quaint Harbour and supposedly "bottomless lake", for a delightful coffee break! Should guests from Elounda area hotels wish to visit Aghios Nicolaos, then they have to arrange their way back to their hotel by themselves.

I really enjoyed the day and pleased I did the tour. A good way to see more of Crete after a week walking in Western Crete. The local taxi pick up from my hotel to connect with the bus was on time as was the taxi waiting to meet the bus to return to my hotel at the end of the day. Excellent driving by the bus driver ( he managed so well in the narrow streets with the way the Greeks park) and the tour guide was excellent. Overall an excellent tour. However I did expect/ would have liked to have quite a bit longer on Spinalonga Island which was my reason for booking the tour.
Tour Wednesday 15 May 2013. No photos as my camera jammed and I am waiting for some from some one I met up with on the bus.
