If you would like to discover a small island covered with sand dunes and small trees, sandy beaches and tropical waters, then you must visit Elafonissi, one of the most exotic beaches of Crete. It is at the southwest tip of Crete, 76 km from the city of Chania. A protected natural reserve by the Natura 2000 European Act, Elafonissi is a peninsula which breaks in two parts by water giving the impression of being a separate island. Before you reach Elafonissi, you will visit the very known Monastery of Chryssoskalitissa. In the way back home, while driving along the road you will reach Elos, a village built in a verdant landscape with chestnut trees, plane trees and many fruit orchards. There, under the plane trees you will have your dinner.
