Elafonisi Beach
Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece

Elafonisi is well-known because of its beautiful sandy beaches with pink and coral sand and the crystal clear turquoise water that gently winds the lagoon. It is located on the secluded and unspoiled ... Read more
southwestern corner of Crete and you quickly get a sense of wilderness and adventure, far away from everything. But that does not mean that you are the only one. Especially in the high season, Elafonisi is a top destination for many tourists. From June to September you can find sunbeds, umbrellas and snack bars right on the beach. If you prefer it more quiet, leave the main beach behind and head towards the beautiful dunes island.Here are many small beaches on the south side and the further you go, the quieter it becomes. However, there is not much shade. The water is generally fairly shallow and safe for children. They can play for hours on end.At the western end of the island is a small hill with a small lighthouse and a small inconspicuous chapel. From here you have a nice view of the whole area.The coral and pink sand, which is found mainly on the water’s edge, is produced by large quantities of tiny red and pink mussels.Elafonisi is a protected area (Natura 2000) as well as a micro-reserve for the protection and study of Androcymbium rechingeri. The small island is home to 110 plant species and is a dream for everyone interested in botany. Particularly noteworthy are lake daffodils, androcymbium rechingeri, marram grass and endemic juniper trees.

the west, which led to a land connection between Crete and the former island of Cape Tigani. Thus, the lagoon could form in the shelter of this land bridge by flooding over a thousand years.The beach of Balos consists of fine white shell and coral sand. The only shallow water on deep parts of the lagoon with depths below 50 centimeters does not show any vegetation. Also the coastal areas characterized by dunes show only a sparse vegetation.On the southern edge of the lagoon, there is a tavern open during the summer, closing in the course of October. There is also a cantina, which offers small dishes. Sun loungers and umbrellas are also rented from there. The cantina is usually open until the end of October.On the peninsula of Cape Tigani is a small chapel and on the outlying island Imeri Gramvousa are the ruins of a Venetian castle from the 16th century.
