Full description
On this full-day trip, you’ll travel from Georgioupolis to the southwest corner of Crete and spend a relaxing day on the pink beaches of the small island of Elafonisi.  During the 3-hour drive to the island, you can sit back and relax, admiring the beauty of the lush green landscapes, traditional villages, and a small church built inside a cave along the way. After taking a short break to stop for a drink, you’ll reach your destination, Elafonisi,  a picturesque bathing paradise with an island that can be easily reached by foot. The water on the island is shallow, clear and gleams with beautiful shades of blue and green. You’ll have plenty of time to unwind on the beach and to purchase snacks and drinks on the island before returning to Georgioupolis in the evening.

Unforgettable excursion to Elafonisi. The pick-up was on time, the tour guide and the driver were super warm, especially Spiridon went to great lengths and Christos shortened the trip with very interesting facts. You really noticed that you were here with people who love and live Crete. We will definitely book again with Balos Tours or Spiridon when we are back in Crete.

Not at all satisfied with this experience. Elafonissi to do absolutely. By cons to do by yourself will save you a lot of time on site and in terms of journey. And yes in the presentation of the excursion we do not tell you that you must first make a hook by the port of Kissamos to drop the tourists who go to Balos and suddenly lose 30min x2. We also do not tell you that the refreshment break also lasts 30 minutes in a tavern lost in the mountains on the way there and back. Result we left at 8 am to return at 8 pm with only 4 hours on the beach and the rest on the bus! In short to avoid if you can afford to rent a car.
