Description

If you come to Crete on holiday, Elafonissi is a name you are sure to hear. Elafonissi is a tiny island with white 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 75 kilometres from Chania and it will take you about an hour and a half to get there.
