Elafonisi Beach and Cretan Mainland

Elafonisi Beach and Cretan Mainland

Elafonisi one of the best beaches in the world. It's an island connected with Crete with a narrow and shallow strip of sand, forming a 10km long beach. The road to get there goes through gorges, picturesque villages and other points of interest. The aim of this tour is not only to visit a beach, but the trip to get there is an experience itself. On the way we will visit various locations of historical, geological and natural interest. We will stop for lunch in a restaurant at the end. We could make an optional stop to a winery or monastery. In this case I have to make a custom tour. Please contact me for further details.

Elafonisi Beach Private Tour

Elafonisi Beach Private Tour

Elafonisi is located 76km west of Chania and 5km south of Chrysoskalitisa Monastery, in the southwesternmost tip of Crete. Elafonisi is an oblong peninsula, which often breaks in two parts by water giving the impression of being a separate island. Elafonisi is a Natura 2000 protected area. The island is full of sand dunes with sea daffodils and jupiners. The endangered loggerhead sea turtle and several more rare animals and plants find shelter on the island; it is strictly forbidden to remove any plants, animals, shells and sand from the area. The pinkish sand has taken this particular color from millions of crushed shells. Near the peninsula, the seawater does not exceed 1m in-depth, creating a small lagoon, ideal for children. You can easily cross the lagoon in order to reach the opposite side of the peninsula because the water is very shallow there. On the return we will visit a restaurant. There is an option to visit an oil factory, winery or Chrisoskalitisa monastery.
