Greece part 8: Elafonisi, Crete

The second of our day trips was to Elafonisi situated on south eastern tip of Crete, 43km from Kastelli and 76km from Chania.

We drove from Chania through the Gorge of Topolia and the mountain towns of Topolia, Myli, Elos, Kefali, and Vathi amongst others, taking in the breathtaking scenery as we went.

The area of Elafonisi has amazing EU blue flag beaches, perfect turquoise waters and white and pink sands. In front of the mainland is the island of Elafonisi itself. At low tide you can walk across from the main land to the island where you can walk around the dunes and swim in the sea. We snorkelled and sunbathed and generally had a very chilled out time. Another amazing day to add to our collection.
