Elafonissi is in west Crete, 75km southwest of Chania. The Elafonissi area includes the beach, the islet 200m offshore and the shallow lagoon between the two.
If you come to Crete on holiday, Elafonissi is a name you are sure to hear. Elafonissi is a tiny island with white-pink sand, separated from the shore by a lagoon no more than a meter deep. Elafonissi means “Deer Island”, but you won't see any deer on the island or in the surrounding area. The island is 75km from Chania and it will take you about an hour and a half to get here.
On the way you will see Chrissoskalitissa (or Chrysoskalitissa) Monastery, visible from afar as it is a dazzling white and built on a great rock. Climb up to pay your respects at this historic monastery and look for the golden step which, according to legend, only the truly devout can see.
Elafonissi is 5km from Chrissoskalitissa. On arriving you will see a large bare expanse used as a car park, a few dusty juniper trees and the wonderful colours of the lagoon. The island is less than 200m from the beach and you can easily walk there through the warm, shallow water of the lagoon. On reaching the island you will discover lots of tiny beaches on its south coast.
The sand of Elafonissi is white, but in many places it is pinkish due to the thousands of broken seashells it contains. The limpid, blue-green waters will remind you of an exotic paradise. The Elafonissi islet and surrounding beaches are among the most beautiful in Crete and a "must visit" site in the prefecture of Chania.
The shallow waters of the Elafonissi beach are turquoise blue and warm. The place attracts swimmers, spear-fishermen, and windsurfers from all over the world. The sand has a coral pink colour in some parts.
There are facilities such as umbrellas and self-service cafes and restaurants on the beach. The whole area is protected by the "Natura 2000" convention and is a natural refuge for many species of sea birds. The cedars growing on the beach are of a rare species and are surrounded by protective ropes. The flora on the sandy island of Elafonissi is unique all times of the year.
