Visit Elafonissi, one of the most famous beaches in Europe
Swim in crystal clear waters
Walk on the warm pink coral sand
Explore the cave of Agia Sophia
A half day tour to Elafonissi island from Chania is an unforgettable experience. Elafonisi – the “Deer-Island” at the south western end of Crete. The special thing about the island is, that it’s only separated by a shallow bridge of sea water from the main land. A scenic drive by bus from Chania to the South West trough small picturesque mountain villages brings us to one of the most beautiful beaches of Crete.
On the way up we will have our first stop at the cave of St.Sofia, the Greek church which is built inside a large limestone cave. With a little luck you might spot a vulture in the sky… We continue our trip to the beautiful island of Elafonissi at the South Western end of Crete. The island is separated by a shallow bridge of sea water from the main land. You can reach it walking through the Libyan Sea. Its coral sand of white and pink gives it an almost tropical effect. You will have time enough to enjoy the crystal clear waters of this small paradise.
On the return journey to Chania we stop at a traditional village where you will have free time for lunch (optional stop depending the available time). Arrival back to Chania around 18:00.
