If you are driving, from Heraklion take the road to Agios Nikolaos (∼45 mins drive on the highway). At the main junction just before you enter the city of Agios Nikolaos you turn left (straight will take u to town center; right will take you to Sitia and Ierapetra ). From there follow the signs towards Elounda (9km). The first half is uphill and the other half is downhill overlooking the gulf of Elounda and the peninsula of Spinalonga (which is where you want to go). As you are coming down from the hill you will pass all the big resorts on your right and start entering the village of Elounda. The last big resort is Elounda Bay Palace and then after 500m, before entering the center of Elounda, there is a sharp right U-turn towards Akti Olous. Take a right turn there and you end up by the coast with the sea along your left hand side (alternatively you can drive to center first and come back to take an easy left turn). After 800m you pass a small bridge and then in 200m you see Elounda island Villas, the only building on the peninsula of Spinalonga.
