Spinalonga - Review

Spinalonga is a tiny islet not far off the coast of Crete Island. This lovely place his home to an old fort built by the Venitians in Greece. It is interesting to see a monument from a period which Greece isn’t essentially famous for in Greece.

The Medieval castle can be reached by ferry and explored during the day. The strategic location of the place made it a very important port and base during its hay day. Today it is a huge tourist attractions and one of the must-sees while in Crete. It is sure to be an enjoyable experience especially for history and architecture enthusiasts.

Spinalonga, Crete Reviews

  • Fantastic spot for going to the beach. I recommend visiting the island by kayak or sup to have a better view than going by ferry. Anyway, you can visit the island by boat from 8euros

  • We went long time ago and it was a wonderful experience and it was something very unique to see how those people stayed and live although they were isolated

  • What a wonderful place. History comes to life in front of you.

  • Nice historical trip on the island.

  • We took a boat ride here to look at the ruins. Interesting history. When we left, the boat stopped at a uninhabited island nearby and served us lunch. It was a magical afternoon.
