Heraklion day boat trips to Elounda, Spinalonga, Kolokytha

Hire a boat from Heraklion and visit Elounda in a boat trip, Elounda is famous for its coves, rocky coastlines, the beautiful village of Elounda, the sunken city of Olous and the remains of a Byzantine basilica. Not far from Elounda and probably one of the best boat trips in Crete is the island of Spinalonga. The island of Spinalonga forms a natural defence “mechanism” for Elounda harbour, and in 1579 the Venetians built a mighty fortress here on the ruins of an ancient acropolis. The Venetians kept control of the island even after the rest of Crete fell to the Ottomans in 1669 and it remained under their control for almost another half a century until its capitulation in 1715. Today thousands of tourists visit Spinalonga each summer as it is the most popular archaeological site in Crete after Knossos.
