“Nothing to see really, but a nice walk.”

Reviewed 5 May 2018

We didn't see any of the sunken town, but we had a nice walk over to the island and found a small beach which was nice, so go for the walk, not the history.

I've been across the causeway and I've seen some of the streets and houses, on a good day of light. If you can snorkel well it is for you! You will not find Atlantis! Who knows what you may find as it is generally untouched.

We brought our snorkel gear to have a good explore but it was too windy and rough, so cannot comment on what is below surface. Above, not much to see.

Very little of the ancient town can now be seen but several areas show the outline of buildings but the whole area is quite shallow and many varieties of bird can be enjoyed

A little bit of history - not exploited and worth a walk from Elounda. See the sunken walls ( although from the Roman era I think) or the ancient early Christian church - not the standing church, but the ruins which are up the lane behind the restaurant, about 75 yards away
