Full Day Trip with Local Guide
Today you will have the opportunity to admire the beautiful and wild rocky beaches around the gulf of Mirabello. From the small port of Elounda we will sail towards the island of Spinalonga. Visiting this island, whose walls hold a thousand and one secrets, is a unique experience. An atmosphere full of mysteries is waiting for you as you enjoy a relaxing boat journey. 

The island of Spinalonga, actually a little island – rock, just 850 meters round the gulf of Elounda, was firstly inhabited by Christians who used the island as a hiding place during the Roman occupation of Crete. In 1575 the Venetians constructed there a most impressive fortress, which was later converted into a colony for the lepers.

The boat will stay for about one hour in the little rock of Spinalonga giving you time to go around and see the island. We return to Elounda for lunch in one of the traditional taverns. On our way back, we make a short stop for a visit to Agios Nikolaos.
