Traditional Caique Experience

Set off from the hotel’s own jetty aboard our quintessentially Greek fishing boat and savor a selection of Cretan wines and a platter of cheese locally sourced from dairy farms. The caique sails around the coast of Elounda and around the isle of Spinalonga, which sits right across from Blue Palace. Spinalonga is a National Heritage Monument, non-inhabited islet, with a rich history that uniquely captures the history of Crete itself. 

With impressive relics from the Roman times, Venetian occupation, Ottoman Turks and most recent history as a leper colony, Spinalonga has been immortalized in the best-selling book of Victoria Hislop “The Island”. Its view is truly breathtaking!
