The beach of Elafonisi seems 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 you.
Located at the southwestern end of the prefecture of Chania, Elafonissi is an exotic place 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 voted 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.
