A full day experience to Spinalonga and Agios Nikolaos with a private guide

You will spend this day at the Gulf of Mirabello on the Cretan Riviera. In the morning we will drive to the beautiful village of Elounda. In the harbor of Elounda the boat is waiting for you and the sea trip begins across the blue, shining bay to the Island of Spinalonga.

This former leper colony includes preserved houses and churches, and a strong Venetian influence in the form of a fortress surrounding the village. With houses and churches that are more of less well preserved, see the proof of the Venetian occupation in the form of the fortress surrounding the abandoned village.
Swim in the crystal blue water.

After returning back to Elounda we will drive to the small, charming town of Agios Nicolaos, with its quaint Harbour and supposedly "bottomless lake".
