Chania City – Elafonissi
On this tour we will visit the most beautiful city of Crete and one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.
Chania has preserved its traditional architecture and most of its monuments of Venetian and Turkish times. We will have two and a half hours of free time for sightseeing, shopping, walking in the narrow streets of the old city and visiting the Venetian port as well as the famous old market.
Leaving Chania for Elafonissi, we will cross many small traditional villages, gorges, a small tunnel, areas with olive trees, maple trees, carob trees, chestnut trees, all stunning landscapes. Halfway, we will make a stop for lunch at a traditional tavern where we can have a tasty and inexpensive meal (not included in the price of the excursion).
Elafonissi is an exotic place, a real paradise with aquamarine, crystal clear, shallow waters and numerous beaches with white and pink sand taking this color from thousands of broken tiny shells.
It’s an oblong and it often “breaks” into two parts by water, giving the impression of being a separate island. Near that “breaking” point, the water does not exceed one meter, creating a small lagoon, ideal also for children. You can easily pass through the lagoon in order to reach this island.
Elafonissi is protected by the European program “Natura 2000” and awarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. We stay there for three hours and we can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, walking along the fantastic pink beaches and the dunes or strolling about the unique cedar forest.
