The southwestern tip of Crete.
The farthest beach from Chania town, but worth the way you do to get there. It is an islet almost connected with a coast and is only 100 meters. from it and one can reach by walking into the sea. Elafonisi is 76 km. From Chania and 43 from Kastelli. Here one comes to admire the stunning sandy beaches with dunes and white sand and swim in the unique in Crete crystal waters. Although the natural beauty attracts plenty of visitors the site has no developed tourist infrastructure. Elafonisi is one of the most popular beaches of Crete.
To get here from Chania there are two routes. Both equally graphic and suggested.
If you are coming from Chania and return to Chania, I would suggest you to go on one route and return from another.
If you follow the first one, which is the shortest, turn left about 1 km before Kissamos (maybe less) and follow the signs to the gorge of Topolia and then to Elafonisi.
To follow the second route will pass through Kissamos to Trahilos, the junction to Falasarna (another of the most popular beaches of Chania), will continue through the village of Platanos and then follow the signs.
You can also get there by bus bus TIME: 09: 00 Ticket Price: 10.90
Private organized touri: Estimated time to reach approximately: 1: 30
with departure and return from your hotel, stop at the Monastery Chrisoskalitissa or the Agia Sofia cave in Topolia (both located on the road to Elafonisi), and stop for lunch at a restaurant. -
And finally with a private taxi: charging / hour 20,00
