Beach & Sun Escape
Elafonisi beach. A paradise you must see to believe.
Somewhere between heaven and earth, there is a Cretan beach paradise sculpted by nature over ancient times. On some days, this geological masterpiece is connected to the coastline of South-Western Crete, and on others, it is an otherworldly island you can easily wade to through a shallow sea corridor.
Imagine basking in richly colored waters of crystal blue and emerald-green shades of the intermingled Cretan and Libyan Seas. With your toes sinking in the fine white sand that is blissfully blended with generous flecks of pink from millions of crushed shells. The freshness of the whistling sea-breeze touches your cheeks by leaving salt crystals in its wake. Not to mention the mesmeric sound of gently lapping waves that simply ground your soul.
There are many ways to appreciate Elafonissi, but none quite as rewarding as a custom private Elafonisi excursion for the discerning and detail-oriented travelers who pursue traveling at their own pace. We believe you deserve to be spoiled with a distinct service and bespoke details.
