Chania Elafonisi beach

Rate:
   

Elafonisi Chania: Elafonisi (or Elafonissos) is a small islet connected to the rest of Crete by a shallow reef that can be crossed when the sea is calm. This islet lies 82 km northwest of Chania town and can be reached by boat from Paleohora or by car from the village of Vathi, until a point and then cross the reef.

Elafonisi (Island of Deer) is like paradise on earth, and has a wonderful beach with pink coral sand and crystalline waters. This magical place was deserted for a long time but now it has become a popular sight and can get pretty crowded during high summer season. Only a couple of cantinas can be found on the beach and no accommodations are available, but camping is allowed.
