This pristine beach on the west coast of Crete has attracted tourists for centuries, but it still is today untouched by mass tourism. And this is because development in the area has been restricted.

The clear waters and the white sand, sometimes with a pinkish glow are a peaceful destination which should not be missed when traveling to Crete. You can reach Elafonisi from Kastelli and Chania, with organized tours.
