Souda Island (Greek: Σούδα) is an island near the mouth of
Souda Bay, Crete, between the Akrotiri Peninsula and the town of Kalives.
Souda was heavily fortified by the
Republic of Venice, as it protected the large natural harbor of Souda. After the fall of Candia in 1669, it was one of three heavily fortified islands kept by Venice until it was finally taken by the Ottomans in 1718.
