Originally built as an island fortress, this manmade island was turned into a leper colony. The last occupant died in the 1960's.
You need to come during the tourist season to get a boat ride out to the island, but it's worth it.

This place is incredibly special quite simply my favourite place on earth.
The history and the views you have of plaka are amazing.this is a must to visit, you have a tour guide it's also incredibly sad and moving but also one of hope.
The boat trip to island is spectacular as well.anyone that has ever read and liked the amazing book by Victoria heslop called the island will love it as well.truly very very special island.

We went on an organised boat trip that involved visiting Spinalonga as part of it. It was worth a visit and the history was interesting. The guided tour was helpful and interesting as provided in your chosen language. Would recommend a visit!!

Great place to explore with wonderful views. Quick ferry ride to the former lemur colony/ fortress from plaka. Recommend good pair of shoes to hike to top but worth the views of the coastline. Kids (13 and 5) loved it and probably would have preferred if we spent more time there End with great lunch in plaka.

I cannot count the times that I had wonderful family holidays in Elounda with my mum, dad and brother. So many happy memories since I was a baby here. So of course I had to bring my husband here to show him my 'second home'. He loved it also. It never really changes which is what I love about it! Everyone is so friendly and it's lovely and peaceful. The trip to Spinalonga is a must do, the island is eerily amazing. Unfortunately they have started to 'do up' the island, it should have been left as it was, it's history! It's still an amazing peaceful and beautiful place to visit.
