Spinalonga Island

The beautiful Spinalonga Island is surrounded by azure blue waters and baron rocky lands. Known as ‘Leper Island’, in 1903 a leper colony was established there to isolate the people suffering from Hansen’s Disease. A walk around the island offers up some of the finest views of the mainland and the perfect swimming spot.
