8:00 Pick up time

Elafonisi is one of the most famous destinations of Crete and is located at the southern east part of Chania. We are driving parallel to the gorge of Topolia and through picturesque villages like Elos.

09:30 Monastery of Panagia Chrisoskalitissa

The Monastery is on the edge of a 35m high rock staring at the Libyan sea. It is an orthodox monastery of the 17th century dedicated to Virgin Mary and the Holy Triad. Chrisoskalitissa in Greek means our Lady Gold-stepped and it is believed that it took its name from the golden stairs that lead up to the monastery.


10:00 Elafonissi

Elafonissi is a small island with white and pink sand separated from the land by a lagoon. The emerald water and pink sand form an exotic scenery. The lagoon between the island and the beach is only 1 m deep so visitors can walk to the island. The pink sand is created from thousands of broken seashells.  A small part of the beach is organized and there is a canteen with snacks and refreshments.
