Elafonisi, the “pink” beach – bus tour
This beautiful “combination” bus-tour takes you through the green and impressive nature wealth of Western Crete with a touch of culture visiting the cave and little church of Agia Sofia and the monastery of Chrissoskalitissa, built at a sheer rock with stunning views of the Libyan Sea. The great and final destination of the day is the idyllic site of Elafonissi, the marvelous “pink” beach and the small lovely islet just off the coast connected with a shallow reef for much joy and relaxation! Elafonisi beach, located at the southwestern most point of Crete, has been ranked highly by many visitors as being unique and one of the best beaches of Greece!
The colors are intense: the soft sand is made up of millions of tiny crushed shells giving it a slight pink shade along the shore whilst the turquoise seawater completes the setting for perfect hours or sunbathing. Sundecks make your stay comfortable or you may take the opportunity to wade through the crystal clear water to reach the little islet. Children enjoy safe paddling in the shallow waters. Paradise!!!
