Elafonisi Beach video

Elafonissi is a beautiful place in the south west coast of the Chania prefecture. You can get there by daily bus service from Chania city. It's a magical place that consists of a small islet full of white and pink sandy beaches, which is close to the main beach.

You can get to the Elafonissi island on foot because the waters are shallow and therefore ideal for small children. It is named by the word "Elafi", which means deer in Greek because people in the past discovered that you can get easily to the islet on foot by a deer that walked to it.
