“The tour was very interesting. We had a limited time in Chania and we were able to see and stop on the small Villages on our way to Elafonisi beach. We ate authentic Cretan dishes / food. The views were amazing as well and we took lots of beautiful pictures. ...Florence G., USA – See more reviews
What To Expect
Head to the south-west tip of Crete and visit an exotically beautiful beach, with crystal clear waters where you can wade out to an island with sand dunes and enjoy privacy. Rose shell-sand - for those going for a quick tan!
On the way, we visit an ancient holy cave/chapel, and an old, picturesque little monastery, built upon the cliffs out of the sea. 3 hours at the beach. Enjoy lunch at a genuine Cretan Tavern with wonderful food at very reasonable prices (at own expense).
