Southwestern Crete

15 hours approximately - 540 Km (from/to Heraklion) - (duration includes a 4.5 hour stay in Elafonisi)

Up to the south-westernmost point of the island, in one of the most spectacular and unexpected locations on the island, is where we will spend the day.

Elafonisi is a place of exceptional natural beauty, something between an island and a peninsula, as you have to walk through the sea to reach it.

Once occupied by pirates, today it is a very popular destination for day-trippers who flood there to the faraway lagoon, whilst having a Mediterranean holiday.

Elafonisi is a paradise on earth – a heaven of unparalleled beauty. It is covered with sand dunes, low trees, bushes, sand lilies and junipers. You can get there on foot from the beach by passing through shallow aquamarine and turquoise waters. The white and pink sand made of thousands of broken seashells, the limpid blue-green waters, the little coves and the secluded tiny beaches remind the travellers of a paradise lost.

Take a swim in the warm tropical waters and relax under the hot summer sun!
