Agios Nikolaos - Elounda - Spinalonga Island

With this excursion, you will visit the eastern part of Crete. Passing by Heraklion, the capital of Crete, we reach the charming little town of Agios Nikolaos lying on the famous lake "Voulismeni" and a small port. Beatifull place with a unique atmosphere. After visiting the town, our trip continuoes towards Elounda bay. Time for a swim and lunch before sailing to the small island of Spinalonga, just off coast Elounda.On the island of Spinalonga housed the last leper colony (opened in 1903) in Europe closing in 1957. The old Venetian fort and houses previously occupied by a Turkish population which became their homes still stand, now empty. A small walk through Spinalonga is an unrepeatable experience.
