A lot of impressions. However, only the positive. Fortress made ​​a strong impression, huge, with lots of nooks and a small chapel in the grounds.

It only took a few minutes by boat to get there from the Blue Palace and has a fascinating history and gorgeous setting. Loved it

An easy 5 minute boat trip took us to Spinalonga, which is a small island with a rich history. You walk around the island and explore the derelict settlements. Great views from the top, well worth the visit. A bit of a warning, we visited on 31st October and like much of Crete, it appeared that the island was shutting for the winter!

Just a lovely place to visit for the day. We took a boat from Elounda and that added to the trip. We joined a tour and learned some really interesting things!

Even if you haven't read The Island, you'll enjoy coming here. This island has had a long history, including operating as both Venetian and Ottoman forts, followed by a sad time as a leper colony. Best time is earlier in the morning. Walk the circumference and read the historical signs to get the full impact.
