Elafonisi Beach

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Crete, Elafonisi Beach!

I really wanted to rent a car while we were here, but we ended up with a tourist bus this time just because we thought it would be easier (We have never rented a car before). However, I´m glad we went on the bus, we learned so much of the Crete culture and got to see a lot of Crete landscape. There was so much to see and a lot of history!

A few honest thoughts on Elafonisi beach was that there are so many people there, a very typical tourist place to go to.
I would still recommend going, I mean it´s one of the prettiest beaches in the world! But try to avoid the busiest times if you can.
They have cute little shops where you can buy souvenirs and food shops too. I bought freshly pressed squeezed pomegranate juice which clumsy me got all over in my bag, haha!
We would have loved to stay there for longer to see the sunset.
Overall it was a lovely place, very beautiful with the crystal clear blue water and white sand everywhere and hints of pink sand!

On the bus ride home, we had one stop where we got to see a cave inside a mountain. It had an amazing view and a special cave that we could have seen more of if we had more time. We also enjoyed some ice cream in the super hot weather.
Very pretty view and cool place to see. It was a great ending of our trip to Elafonisi Beach.
