Elafonisi Beach is a stunning and highly recommended destination on the island of Crete in Greece. It is known for its crystal clear turquoise waters and beautiful pink sand, which give the beach a truly paradise-like feel.
To reach Elafonisi Beach, you will need to navigate a number of serpentine roads, which can be a bit challenging at times, especially when it is crowded. The journey is worth it, however, for the chance to experience the beauty of this amazing beach.
If you want to avoid the crowds, it is best to visit Elafonisi Beach early in the morning or late in the evening. We arrived in the late afternoon and were initially overwhelmed by the crowds on the beach, but even in the evening, we could see the pink color of the sand. The next morning, we got up early and were the first on the beach, which allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the beach in peace and take some amazing photos with our drone.
Overall, Elafonisi Beach is an absolute highlight of any trip to Crete, and it is well worth the effort to get there. If you are planning a visit, it is worth staying in a hotel in Elafonisi so that you can fully enjoy the beauty of this amazing beach. Just be aware that the beach can get quite crowded during the summer months, so it is best to visit outside of peak tourist season if possible.
