Today it’s time to hit the open sea, as you take a boat from Agios Nikolaos and sail to Spinalonga, a small island with a special past. At the beginning of the 20th century it was a leper colony. After a few hours exploring the island, you’ll end the trip and head back to Agios Nikolaos and wander around Lake Voulismeni. Located in the middle of the city, it is bustling with life. If you prefer to laze around, you can always visit Voulisma beach instead of the city. After a relaxing start the following morning, you can explore the northeast coast where you will find the palm beach of Vai, one of the remaining primeval palm tree forests on the island.
