Spend a wonderful day in one of the most picturesque and unusual beaches in Europe!
Elafonissi island is located in the south-westernmost point of Crete, in one of the most spectacular and unique places. Once occupied by pirates, now it is a popular destination for those who want to spend a day on the stunning tropical beach, while staying in Crete.
The island is covered with sand dunes, low trees, sand lilies and junipers, and its beach is also known as a Pink beach because of its unusual color which is the result of thousands of broken seashells. Crystal clear turquoise water, the little coves and the secluded tiny beaches remind the travelers of a paradise lost. Take a swim in the warm tropical waters and relax under the hot summer sun!
