Crete Yoga & Gastronomy Retreat
Day Trip to Elafonisi
The famous Elafonisi beach was named one of the world’s top beaches back in 2014. Elafonisi is actually an entire island, separated from the southwest coast of Crete by a shallow, warm lagoon and a sandbar that is submerged under about one meter of water at most during high tide. Thanks to the low water level, travelers can walk along the sandbar all the way to the island of Elafonisi. The small island is an internationally classified nature reserve and is like another world with its gorgeous pink sand, clear water, and lush vegetation. The lagoon is a shelter for loggerhead sea turtles. It’s rare to spot one, but perhaps it will be your lucky day!
This tour is about 9 hours in length. The tour price includes private transfer to the South East part of the island. The trip will take 1.5 to 2 hours. Along the way we will visit a historical monastery with excellent views and stop in a beautiful village for lunch (not included in price). We will have plenty of time to explore the pink sand beach and nature preserve as well.
Cost for this special tour: $105
