Spinalonga boat trip

An absolute must-do in the area, Spinalonga is an old Venetian fortress that was later on turned into a quarantine colony for lepers. Today the island can be easily reached by boat from Agios Nikolaos, Elounda and Plaka, and it is a quite incredible open-air museum, with beautifully refurbished old houses and lots of history. Walking around the island is a real pleasure and, once you are done, there is also a café to sit and relax and take in the views. As it can get very hot and crowded in the middle of the day, it is better to take either an early boat in the morning or a late one in the afternoon.
