SUGGESTED HOTEL: VIVA
Elafonissi Beach is really a dream and in my opinion, perhaps the most beautiful in all of Europe, not surprisingly is defined as the Caribbean of the Mediterranean . Situated in the extreme south-west of Crete , is reached via a long winding road that crosses the island, climbing the mountains, canyons and ravines.
The beach has white sand and a shallow lagoon with water colors breathtaking, crystal clear, and a narrow strip of sand that separates the island of Elafonissi , very wild, you can walk through the shallow depth of ' water, which does not exceed the knees. On the island there are other small beaches, all beautiful, characterized by sand in some places it seems pink.
Travel Tips: the majority of tourists arrive with excursions around 11.30, so it is best to arrive early to enjoy the beach for the most solitude and tranquility. On the main beach there is the possibility to rent parasols and sun loungers (7 euro) and small bar as well as a free parking.
