Customer Reviews

This was a beautiful day in Chania, if not one of our best days in Crete! Our guide was knowledgeable and introduced us to Crete's nature, gastronomy and local life. We had a fantastic swim and an interesting walk by the sea. Great memories, highly recommended - Katherine, USA


A fantastic itinerary combining A must-see destination in Chania area; beautiful beach time and an authentic day in Crete with a local insider.

Activity Description

Driving through spectacular gorges you will arrive in unique Elafonisi beach, one of Europe’s best beaches. You will spend the morning relaxing, swimming and exploring around the pink coral sand and the blue lagoon on one of the best beaches in Greece. In front of the beach there is a little island that is called the 'Island of Deer' which you can swim or walk across to, since the water is very shallow. Your host will also be available to guide you on an approx 40-minute coastal walk to the 'Kedrodasos' (coastal dunes with junipers).
Elafonisi has canteens that serve snacks and refreshments so you don’t need to come prepared. As it gets crowded during high-season, the option of visiting more isolated and quiet beaches is available through an 30' minute easy walking trail.
Your next stop will be a taverna with panoramic views for lunch or a Greek coffee.
On your way back you can visit the convent of Chrisoskalitissa found on top of a rock. It is a monastery with a great cultural and historic past and the seaviews from above are definitely worth enjoying.

Special Features
