Spinalónga Peninsula : Michelin's recommendations
At the seaside resort of Eloúnda, turn right into a road with hairpin turns in the direction of the bay. It leads to a track suitable for vehicles that runs through onetime salt pans created by the Venetians. At the end of the track by two pretty stone windmills the road crosses a bridge over a canal that was dug through the neck of the Spinalónga peninsula in 1898 by French soldiers. On the right are the remains of the ancient city of Oloús.
