Elafonisi Special - Early Arrival
Special tour with early arrival to quiet beach!
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!
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-church of Agia Sofia and the monastery of Chrissoskalitissa, built at a sheer rock with stunning views of the Libyan Sea. The main 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. We will take you there at this SPECIAL TIME of the day before big groups will arrive!
The colors are intense: the soft sand is made up of millions of tiny crushed shells giving it a slight pink shade at some parts, whilst the turquoise seawater completes the setting for perfect hours or sunbathing. Children enjoy safe paddling in the shallow waters. Paradise!!!
