The island sits off the northern tip of Kolokitha peninsula, which forms the safe harbour of Elounda, in the wide Mirabello Bay, protected from the north by Cape Agios Ioannis.
Since ancient times this bay was the home of peoples, long ago there sat the town of Olous, which is now submerged under water.
The physical beauty around Elounda Crete, the bay and the island are the reason that many fall in love there.
The island was fought over by succeeding powers in the Mediterranean and played an important strategic role in history. Its location at the entrance to a secure harbour made it ideal for a defensive fortress. When the sea lords of Venice claimed Crete as theirs they built a fort here. It remains in ruins today.
The word ‘spina-longa’ is Italian for ‘long spine’. The island is popular with visitors for Crete tours to enjoy its unusual history and its aqua marine bays.
