Description

Driving along the North East coast through the gorge of St George, we reach the small fishing village of Elounda, the location of the BBC television series “Who pays the Ferryman”. Today Elounda is a popular holiday resort, often visited by VIPs for the luxurious beach resorts, situated in the area. From there, we take the boat that gets us to the small island of Spinalonga. The history and the culture of the island of Spinalonga became one with human tragedy in the course of time. This small isle carries within the history of Ancient Greece, as it served as a natural guard for the ancient city of Olous; the history of the Saracens as a hide-out for their pirates; the history of Venetians as their fortress; the history of Turks as their settlement.

After our guided tour of the island, we proceed to the small sandy pirate bay of Kolokitha, where the boat will be anchored. Here you have plenty of time for swimming at the crystal clear waters, tasting the BBQ served on board.

We then return to Elounda, where we take our bus for our last stop, the picturesque town of Aghios Nikolaos. Here you have time to look at the shop windows, visit the bottomless lake, shop in the local shops and relax.
