Excellent tour… Elefonisi beach is stunning. The tour was well planned, the guide is very sweet, knowledgeable & professional. We stopped for coffee on the way at a cafe in the mountains with a great view, had 4 hours at the beach with clear blue water & pink sand and then stopped at a restaurant for a late lunch on the drive back. Epic. Just pack a light lunch/snack/drinks for the beach… the small stands there are very expensive.

Wonderful adventure! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. She explained about the history of Crete, myths and legends. All very interesting. The beach, the view & clear blue water was just beautiful. However, it was very breezy. The taverna we stopped at to eat a late lunch, early dinner depending on what you wanted was great. Food was delicious. Throughly enjoyable day all round.

We had a great experience going to Elafonisi, the bus trip was long but the stops helped break it up. The restaurant we had dinner at was the most delicious meal we had overall. The beach was amazing and wasn’t crowded at all. The water is crystal clear and the sand is soft to walk on.

10/10 trip. Would definitely recommend!! You can’t visit Crete and miss this natural beauty. The tour guide was lovely and very informative. The stop at the tavern on the way home was great too.. the goat, chestnuts and potatoes were to die for!

What an incredible place! In addition to a paradisiacal view and crystal clear water, it has a structure of beach chairs and sports such as windsurfing, sup and canoes for fun!
