  • Nice location, but the souvenir shop and the cafe are ridiculously expensive!
  • Interesting but I wish I didn't go with a guide, we saw one street and got 10 minutes to yourselves to explore. There's a lot of history here for those who are interested, I'd recommend and independent visit.
  • Beautiful bay and nature
  • Hardly a beach. This is merely a sandy cove on the Spinalonga leper colony.
  • Interesting place with an sad history.
