Elafonisi Beach is located on the southwest coast of the island of Crete and is one of the most beautiful and extraordinary landscapes in the Mediterranean. Wild mountains overlook this magical combination of white and pink sand and crystal turquoise water. There is also a small island which most of the times is connected to the beach with a thin sandy isthmus, which is like walking on the water!

Only 5 km away is Chryssoskalitisa monastery. You will see it on your road, on the top of a hill. It is a 17th-century Orthodox Christian monastery and the view is just dreamy.

Quick Tips

Avoid high season period (especially July and August) and take a chance to enjoy this charming place more peacefully. There are rooms, hotels and umbrellas (7 euros) for your convenience as is a quite popular place in Greece. There are also snack bars to grab a sandwich or an ice-cream. Highly recommend to stay for the sunset!
