Our excursion starts from the beautiful port of Elounda, a well-known tourist resort of our island, where we will board our ship with destination initially the picturesque cape of Kolokytha where there is free time to swim in the clear waters of the sea. During the free time you also prepare the BBQ which the menu includes: pork chop, village salad (tomato-cucumber-onion), feta, bread, wine or orange juice, and seasonal fruit and served on board.
After 1 hour of our stay in Kolokytha, we depart for Spinalonga .. There is a castle built by the Venetians in 1579 in order to protect the bay of Mirabello and Elounda. This fort with 40 cannons played an important role for Crete and after its liberation in 1903, it became a sanatorium of lepers for over half a century. It closed in 1957, leaving behind sad memories and dark legends.
After the tour and our stay for 1½ hour in Spinalonga we return to Elounda, where we board our buses in the direction of the city of Agios Nikolaos. There we have about an hour of free time for shopping in the local shops or to enjoy our coffee in the beautiful bottomless (based on an urban legend) lake of Agios Nikolaos.
