Amazing..Natural beauty at its best Free car parking but can get very full. A few cafes on the beach too. Very mountainous area so be prepared to travel the high road to get here. Well worth it when you do

Although the drive was interesting and at sometimes dangerous to see the pink sands of Elafonisi is a must for anyone visiting Crete

A real paradise! Before you go check the winds blowing in the area. You don't want south winds blowing because it will be annoying. Sun protection is all you will need. You don't have to stay in the central beach where most people tend to...More

I absolutely loved this beach, think it's my second favourite after Rottnest Island. We caught the bus from Chania and it took a couple of hours I think through some beautiful scenery. We went in May so it was busy but not offensively so, especially...More

Sorry, I can't say. We drove (rented a car), but surely if you are in a resort or apartment the reception/owner will recommend a travel agent/day trip service to take. There are tons of those that go here, I believe.
