Spinalonga – Agios Nikolaos

We visit the eastern part of the island. Agios Nikolaos is a small town with a picturesque harbor. The hilly town is built around a former sweet water lake.
By boat we visit the island of Spinalonga. This island was used as a Leper Colony until 1957. In the small village under the Venetian fortress the stigmatized lepers shared fates when exiled to the island. On our boat trip back to Agios Nikolaos, we stop to make a BBQ and to take a swim in the clean waters of Kolokitha beach in the area of the remains of the ancient sunken city of Olous.
