No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn ...
So here we are ...
What a bright, warm, sunny day in Kolokitha Peninsula.
Kolokytha is a small island-peninsula just opposite the historical Spinalonga, 12km north of Agios Nikolaos and close to Elounda Village.
Opposite the island there is the fantastic beach of Agios Loukas, mostly known as Kolokytha.
There is a great beach on Kolokitha and you could access it through Elounda. On the route you will meet the small canal built by the French army in 1897 to connect the lagoon of Elounda to Mirabelo Bay.
There are a few windmills around, a picturesque bridge and boats in the canal, creating a unique landscape. Then the road turns to a dirt track and after 200-300m you have to turn right. Drive in this track and cross the peninsula of Spinalonga vertically, having stunning views of its rocky shores and the abandoned farms.
A worth visit during your next holiday in Crete.
