Spinalonga Island Exploration

Spinalonga Island Exploration

Visit Spinalonga Island a former Italian fortress and later a leper colony. Includes a lunch of delicious Cretian specialties and a taste of the famous “Raki” (local spirit).

Depart from Agios Nicolaos port via coach for the beautiful village of Plaka, where a small boat to the island of Spinalonga awaits. The island is located at the entrance of the bay of Elounda, Crete. A former Italian fortress controls the entrance to the bay - one of the last to fall to the Ottoman invaders. The island later became a leper colony for the first half of the 20th century. Today the island is unoccupied, and it is one of the main tourist attractions in the area. Here you will learn about this island on a guided tour, afterwards returning by boat to Plaka.

Upon arrival, in Plaka Village you will enjoy a glass of raki and a Greek lunch at a local tavern. Following lunch, re-board the coach for a drive back to Agios Nicolaos village where you can remain to stroll around the picturesque village on your own or return directly to the yacht.
