Elafonisi Underwater, Chania - Crete | 01 Jun 2015
35.2700° N | 23.5320° E
Elafonisi which located in the southwest end of Crete, about 75 km from the city of Chania has definitely earned the 'wow factor' as it holds something special to that of the 'competitor' beaches. A place of an exceptional natural beauty with a beautiful thin sand that becomes pink in many places, the shallow waters making it ideal for families, the magical colour of the sea in so many different shades of blue that resembles the Caribbean, the island overlooking the beach, which is reachable by foot giving the added sense of discovery and seclusion for visitors who wish to break away from the crowds. Elafonisi gives the unique feeling of being in a faraway exotic paradise whilst having a Mediterranean holiday. A place that will certainly not disappoint you, from any point of view, as it holds equally balanced beauty both above and below the water.
