Elafonissos Lefki beach
Hotels in Lefki
The most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean just got it's Byzantine tower of stone! So, after five centuries, the desire of the Chrysospathi family from Constantinople is fulfilled. The story goes back in 1512. Chrysospathaioi with their ships headed to Mani, for permanent installation in Agios Nikolaos. During the night, fighting the stormy Cape Malea with a strong north wind, they found refuge in the Sarakiniko (Simos) bay. When the day dawned they could not believe their eyes. Around them a blue-green paradise with white sand hills and over them a beautiful cedar forest.
