Elafonissi is a place of unique beauty, located 72kms southwest of Chania city. It's mostly known for the astonishing combination of the islet, the turquoise waters and the pink coloured sand. The sea level between the beach and the islet is very shallow, making this place even more special, giving you the impression that you are in a huge swimming pool. It's the most popular place of the island, so don't expect to find any isolation but nevertheless it's a must see place of you visit Crete. Don't forget to pay a visit to Chrysoskalitissa monastery on the way to the beach. Have a nice time!
