Overview

Elounda and Spinalonga are two iconic destinations in Crete, Greece, each offering its own unique charm and history: Elounda: This picturesque coastal town is located on the northeastern coast of Crete, near the larger city of Agios Nikolaos. Elounda is renowned for its crystal-clear waters, sandy beaches, and upscale resorts. Visitors can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, and water sports in the azure waters of Mirabello Bay. The town also boasts a charming harbor lined with traditional tavernas, cafes, and shops where you can savor fresh seafood and local delicacies. Elounda's relaxed atmosphere and stunning scenery make it a popular destination for travelers seeking a tranquil seaside retreat. Spinalonga: Just off the coast of Elounda lies the small island of Spinalonga, which holds a significant place in history. Spinalonga is best known for its Venetian fortress, which was built in the 16th century to protect the eastern part of Crete from Ottoman invasion. In the early 20th century, the island served as a leper colony, housing individuals afflicted with Hansen's disease until 1957. Today, Spinalonga is a popular tourist attraction, offering guided tours that provide insight into its fascinating past. Visitors can explore the well-preserved ruins of the fortress, stroll through the narrow streets of the abandoned village, and learn about the lives of the people who once called Spinalonga home. Combining a visit to Elounda with a trip to Spinalonga offers a perfect blend of relaxation and cultural exploration. Whether you're lounging on the beaches of Elounda or immersing yourself in the history of Spinalonga, you're sure to create unforgettable memories on your journey through Crete.

What a lovely place! The island is well known for its cosmopolitan lifestyle and this tour is an affordable way to take a taste from Mykonos! We didn't want the day to be over, but it did with overall satisfaction. The ride to Mykonos is by the fastest boat in the Mediterranean and it is so exciting to have experienced also that.
