Elafonissi Beach

This is a chance to visit one of the most stunning lagoons you will ever see! Travel to the South West of the island through some of Crete’s most green and fertile countryside to one of the best beaches in Europe where the sand is tinted pink from the millions of crushed shells and the water is a clear turquoise blue.

The warm waters are so shallow that you can walk out to Elafonissi (The Deer) Island. On the way, stop at the Monastery of Panagia Chrisoskalitissa (our Lady of the Golden Step).
