Elafonisi Island Tour
Excursions & day trips

Elafonisi Island Tour

An excursion that gets better and better as the day goes on. Our first stop is the Voulgaro for coffee or snacks. Next, it's on to the star attraction. Ringed by pink sands and light blue seas, the uninhabited islet of Elafonisi could hardly be more beautiful. Wade over through knee-deep water and relax on the beach or go for a stroll – there's a dinky little chapel on the western tip. You'll have about four hours of free time to do as you wish. On the way back, walk up to Agia Sophia, a colossal cave famous for its stalactites and chapel.

Spinalonga – from Rethymnon
Excursions & day trips

Spinalonga – from Rethymnon

The tiny isle of Spinalonga is just a short hop away from Crete but a visit is like stepping back in time. Spinalonga has been a Venetian outpost, an Ottoman town and a leper colony, which led to it being dubbed the ‘Isle of Tears'. A guided walk will show you around the fortress and the colony – which closed in the 1950s. Spinalonga is a location in Victoria Hislop's bestselling novel, The Island. Later, you'll sail back to Elounda for lunch in a local taverna. And rounding off the day is a visit to Agios Nikolaos, a lively seaside town sheltered by two offshore islets.
