Um. Per Minoa, there are several sites that have been known as Minoa, mostly in the Aegean.  But in the sense Minoa is used on Quora, as a shorthand for “site of the Minoan civilisation”, that would be Crete.

In fact, since the Classical survival of non-Hellenic Eteocretan language  was in easternmost Crete, where I hail from, I could well say Minoa today is Lasithi preferecture—though that presupposes that Eteocretan is the same as Minoan.

What island did the Minoans inhabit?  is a similar question.
