Elafonisi Beach

Elafonisi Beach, Chrysoskalitissa Monastery

One of the most known beaches not only in the Crete but in the whole world is Elafonisi. The name means ‘’deer island’’ but there aren't any deers in Elafonisi.  Actually it’s a very small island with beautiful white-pink sand. You don’t need to swim because the lagoon who separate the island from the beach is less than a meter deep.

In this excursion you will see also just next to to Elafonisi the very famous Chrysoskalitissa Monastery, built 5 km for Elafonisi. Built on a huge rock seen from very far. You will climb up and may you see the golden step if you ‘’believe’’ it. There are a few tavernas nearly for lunch or coffee.
