  • Kastros One Of Many Choices

    Siteia Restaurants

    You can walk the harbor of Sitia and take your choice of many, many tavernas. They sit right on the water so the view is nice for them all. So it becomes a choice of the food. We walked close and looked in almost every one before we made our choice by walking back to Kastros. This turned out to be an okay decision. The food was great and the...

Nisida Spinalonga

  • Venus Cruises Shipping Company

    Nisida Spinalonga Transportation

    In Agios Nikolaos you can find along the waterfront numerous ferry services that will take you for the day to Spinalonga. We decided, just by chance, on the Venus Cruises and can say that we were very happy with our choice. The boat left exactly on time and returned the same way, also stopping along the way to allow people to take a short swim near...

  • Spinalonga, island views

    Nisida Spinalonga Things to Do

    A place to spend a quiet afternoon, both with a little thought on the "human condition" and what people are capable of, and also some beautiful "sights" to photograph.The tree in the middle of a stone stair shows how nature takes back very soon what man has built if they do not maintain it.
