Elafonissi Beach - Review

Elafonissi Beach is a gorgeous area and shoreline that is sure to be an absolute delight for tourists. The Elafonissi Beach has a natural beauty that cannot be compared to any other. This summer retreat is popular with tourists and locals alike.

The Sand is almost pink and the water is a beautiful greenish colour. If you are going to Greece to experience the perfect beach holiday, this will be a great addition to your itinerary. There are plenty of Sun Beds and Umbrellas to beat the heat and the bars and taverns around assure that you will never be without a cool and refreshing drink. A definite must visit in on Crete.

Elafonissi Beach, Crete Reviews

  • One of the best beaches of Crete! All the time we spent there we were fascinated by how beautiful it is. First of all, it's a huge spot of a beach! So there's no way you don't find a spot to lay down your stuff and enjoy the view. The water is low and the sand is soft, some of the sand is pink, which makes the area even more special. Very recommended beach and area. It's a must see for everyone staying in Crete. It was four hours drive from our hotel, but we still decided to visit and it was worth it!

  • Beautiful place... Clear water. Make sure you hike out past the sun bed areas. Can find some areas with black and pink sand, and really get away from the crowds. Some parts of the beach have pretty rock formations in the water, others are perfect soft sand. You can find whatever you want. By the way, there are some basic (paid) bathrooms and quick food stands in case you're wondering...

  • Beautiful beach with crystal clear waters. The beach gets very busy during the summer period, I would highly recommend bringing your own umbrella and finding somewhere quiet further along the beach away from the large areas of sun loungers and people. The water is shallow for a fair way out making it ideal for children or those not so strong swimmers.

  • The most beautiful beach in Crete! It is a bit further away from the city so maybe it would be a good idea to rent a room close by to make it easier for you. Perfect for the kids and grownups!

  • Spectacular beach and small island. The water is crystal clear. It is a bit crowded but it doesn't really bother since the beach is huge and you can always find a nice place to sit on the sand. If you wanna be away from the people, you can also go to the other side of the small island. However, there are big rocks in the water on this side. So, be careful while swimming.
