Elafonisi

Elafonisi sea 1Elafonisi is located at a distance of about 80 km from the city of Chania. Elafonisi is called an excellent sandy beach with blue and green sea and colourful sandy beach. There is a small islet in front of the beach with the same name.

It is a peaceful place full of colors and light. You could go there on foot, as the distance from the land is less than 100 m. The white sand, the sandy hills and the various colors will compensate for your labour. There is also a small cafe on the beach with fast food and soft drinks.

The wider district of Elafonisi is of special enviromental interest and it is characterised as a "NATURA" area. Here can be found a few endangered spacies. For the moment two plans of "LIFE" are running.
