The small village of Elafonissos displays the typical architecture of a Greek island, with small white houses, red-tiled roofs and narrow paths. The village was found in the middle of the 19th century, when settlers from Mani, Peloponnese, migrated on that island but some archeological discoveries found in the area witness that the village was inhabited from the prehistoric times.

In the wider region lie three sanctuaries that belong to Athena, Poseidon and Apollon. The church of Agios Spiridon who is the patron saint of the island, stands on a rock opposite the waterfront and a narrow bridge connects this small church to Elafonissos village. For swimming Simos is a paradise beach that everyone should visit.
