Spinalonga & swimming in Elounda
Land tour code: AGH-03
Cruise port: Greece - Crete - Agios Nikolaos
Duration: Half day
We drive from Agios Nikolaos port to the resort of Elounda, an unforgettable beauty famed throughout the Aegean for its gorgeous green hills, its sugar-sand beaches and its pristine, inviting sea.
From Elounda we sail the calm waters of the Bay of Elounda for the island fortress of Spinalonga, a former Venetian bastion and, until 1957, a leper colony. Spinalonga also features in Victoria Hislop’s debut novel "The Island".
We leave Spinalonga for a small nearby bay to swim in its turquoise waters and enjoy a barbecue on the beach.
