Explore Spinalonga: Information

Spinalonga

Around 10:00 in the morning the boat leaves the harbor of  Agios Nikolaos and sails along a beautiful coastline, through the Gulf of Mirabello to the former leper island of Spinalonga. It’s a small and almost round island with an old Venetian fortress that was built at the end of the 16th century and a small Venetian village, where soldiers who protected Crete used to live. From 1903 until 1957 Spinalonga was a leper colony. On the island a guide will tell you everything about the rich history of the island and you’ll be given time to walk around.
After your visit to Spinalonga the boat will take you to the fishing village Elounda, that became famous because of the British series “Who pays the ferryman” that were filmed there in 1977. In the village are many tavernas and there is a small sandy beach.
In the afternoon the boat will take you from Elounda back to the harbor of Agios Nikolaos. You can relax aboard the boat and enjoy the environment. Around 16.00 the boat reaches the harbor of Agios Nikolaos..

Additional Information

Think about taking a swimsuit, hat or cap, sun lotion and sunglasses with you. Aboard the boat you can buy sandwiches, drinks etc.
Sometimes due to very hard winds the harbor police doesn’t allow the boats to sail out with passengers. This is for your own safety!!! In this case your excursion program will be adjusted.
