Explore Elafonisi island and its beach, one of the most beautiful in the world


Elafonisi is located in the southwestern tip of Crete. It is a long peninsula, which often breaks in two parts by water giving the impression of being a separate island. Exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise water, are formed on either side of the peninsula. The sand is pinkish in many places, taking its color from millions of crushed shells. Near the breaking point of the peninsula, the seawater does not exceed 1m in depth, creating a small lagoon.
You can easily cross the lagoon in order to reach the opposite side of the peninsula because the water is very shallow. At the tip of the peninsula, there is the island which is a mile long, ending in a rocky outcrop. Elafonisi is a Natura 2000 protected area home to more than 100 rare plants and a great shelter for rare loggerhead sea turtles.
On the way back we will make a stop for lunch. Optional visit to a winery, olive oil factory or monastery monastery.
