Accomodation in Elafonissi Beach - Check Prices

Elafonisi, at the southwesternmost point of Crete, is an oblong, which often "breaks" in two parts by water giving the impression of being a separate island. Elafonisi is a Natura 2000 protected area. The island is full of dunes with sand lilies and junipers. The endangered turtles careta -careta and several rare animals nest on the island and it is strictly forbidden to remove any plants, animals and sand from the area. Exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise waters, reminding of the Caribbean, are formed on either side of the peninsula. The sand is pinkish in many places, taking its color from thousands of broken shells. Near the “breaking” point of the peninsula, the water does not exceed 1m, creating a small lagoon, ideal for children. You can easily cross the lagoon in order to reach the “island”, carrying along your staff, as the water is very shallow there. The eastern side of the beach, in front of the lagoon, is well organized and attracts the majority of people. There are umbrellas, showers, lifeguards, snack bars and changing rooms.
