From the moment you leave the mainland this special place fills you with awe, so much has happened here over the centuries, a place for quiet reflection if you can find a spot away from the crowds!

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!!
