The beach of Elafonisi looks like a small paradise on earth. Elafonisi is one of the most breathtaking beaches. Dive into the clear blue water and let the sun dry your body.

Elafonissi is located in the southwest end of the prefecture of Chania and is an exotic location with turquoise waters and pink sand. The whole area, which stretches for 1.5 km, looks like a huge blue quartz crystal with versatile reflections: white beaches with pink coral sand, crystal clear sea water, the lagoon with warm shallow water and sandy bottom ideal for children, secluded coves and interesting rock silhouettes that appear at sunset, the islet full of sand dunes with protected sea daffodils and juniper trees.

Elafonisi was recently named one of the 25 most beautiful beaches in the world by TripAdvisor. Even if the parking lot and the main beach are crowded in July and August, Elafonisi is undoubtedly a paradise place where you can feel a touch of wilderness and the breath of nature.

The western part of Elafonisi is on the lagoon. This part is usually windier due to its location. The beach is equipped with umbrellas and deck chairs that can be rented for a small fee. 

Elafonisi, in southwestern Crete, has become a very popular destination for day trippers who flock to this corner of paradise. It attracts many visitors in the summer months, while its beauty is unparalleled.
