Elafonisi ("deer island") is an island located close to the southwestern corner of Crete. To get there you have to walk from the beach, through the water. Both beaches of Elafonisi are perfect for everyone! Very shallow sea with very fine white and pink sand due to the crushed shells. Offered to play pong and volleyball literally in the water.
A place of great natural beauty and protected area Natura. Definetely one of the most popular destinations in Crete.
Vrissi, a small well organized pebbly beach, is the main beach of Sfakia and is located at the west end of the village.
From Sfakia harbor you can take the ferry and reach many beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters, such as Illigas beach, Glyka nera and Marmara beach. Don't miss to stop at Loutro, a small peaceful and stuningly beautiful village, with traditional tavernas, souvenir shops and a well organized beach.
