SPINALONGA - AGIOS NIKOLAOS
Spinalonga is a small island near Elounda in Eastern Crete.
It has become known as the “island of lepers” since those people who had the disease were isolated and sent there from all over Greece until 1957.
Every summer many tourists visit the little island by taking boats from Agios Nikolaos, Elounda or Plaka.
Spinalonga receives 1200-1500 visitors daily and is the most-visited archaeological site on Crete after Knossos. You can walk around the ruins of the small city.
Next stop is Agios Nikolaos, the town with three openings towards the sea: The lake and port, Kitroplatia beach and the Marina. You will first visit the lake ("Voulismeni"), a deep body of water which is connected to the sea by a narrow inlet, surrounded and overlooked by cafés and restaurants - a busy gathering place for local residents and visitors alike.
The microscopic island of Agii Pandes is also in view, adding to the beauty.
