Spinalonga island – Elounda

Description

SPINALONGA ISLAND

We arrive at the pretty, cosmopolitan town of Agios Nicolaos which lies on the shores of the Gulf of Mirabello.

Agios Nikolaos is famous for its picturesque ‘bottomless lake’ and it was here that the well known film “The Lotus Eaters” was shot.  You will have plenty of time to discover this pretty little town on your own, to stroll around the shops or just relax in one of the popular cafes and watch the world go by. Leaving Agios Nicolaos, and after a short coach trip and a photo stop, we arrive at Elounda, once a fishing village but now,  after having been discovered by tourism, a famous resort with the most five star hotels in Greece.

From Elounda port, you will take the boat to Spinalonga island. On the island, you are going to have free time to stroll around. The island is really small, covering an area of 0.085 km2, so it is relatively easy to explore.The  tour on the island will both fascinate and haunt you as you learn the tragic history of this island which was once a Venetian fortress and was then the isolated home of many lepers up to 1957 when it was cleared by the Health Authorities, leaving the place uninhabited.

The Venetians constructed a very impressive fortress with forty cannons which has been guarding the strategic bay of Mirabello since the 15th century.

We get on board again and head for the sandy bay in Mirabello Bay. Here you will have time for resting or swimming in the crystal clear waters while, in the meantime, the GYROS will be cooked by the crew. It will be served on board at just the right time.

The boat will take you back to Elounda to take the coach for the return journey after a fantastic day.
