Olous Review

Olous is a sunken, ancient city visible beneath the turquoise waters off a causeway that leads to the Spinalonga peninsula (not to be confused with the island of the same name), an undeveloped headland. The combination of warm waters and the promise of seeing the outlines of a Roman settlement on the seabed are alluring to snorkelers and swimmers. A few scant remains, including a mosaic floor, can be seen on dry land (fenced and marked with a sign).
