Elounda Boat Trip
The Elounda Boat Trip promises a sea journey that begins at Elounda Village. Our bus and tour guide will pick you up around 11:30 am. The return is around 19:00. We use only the best boats, buses and tour guides for our tours and water activities.
Our first destination is the Spinalonga Island, a place of both beauty and history. The Venetian fortress, once a leper colony is a testament to the island’s past. As we approach, the striking architecture of the fortress becomes visible. From Spinalonga, our voyage continues to the Barbarossa cave. A natural marvel that took the name from the infamous pirate who once sought refuge within its depths. This cave adds another layer to the richness of our maritime journey.
Next stop is the Skistra beach. A nice beach with crystal clear waters. Here, you will have the opportunity to swim at your leisure, or simply unwind on the beach while soaking up the warm Mediterranean sun.
After swimming in the refreshing waters of Skistra beach, our boat sets sail towards the enchanting Kolokytha beach. The pristine sands and turquoise waters create a stunning backdrop for memorable photos. The harmony of nature and the blue sea sets the stage for an experience that will be in your memories long after the boat trip concludes.
As we cruise between destinations, the boat’s amenities come to the fore. A tempting salad bar and a refreshing fruit bar await you. We offer a delightful array of healthy snacks to keep you energized throughout the journey. For those looking to enhance their experience, a selection of cocktails is available at additional charge.
In conclusion, the Elounda Boat Trip is not just a journey. It’s a curated experience that seamlessly blends exploration, relaxation, and culinary delights against the backdrop of some of the most stunning landscapes that Crete has to offer.
