For us, the bright sun and the clear blue waters with people sunbathing on the golden sand are what we want to experience soon. One place that (for sure) many travelers want to visit again is Elafonisi. It has a wonderful beach with pink coral sand and crystalline waters. It is worth mentioning that is a Natura 2000 protected area with rare plants and unique animals such as the sea turtle and daffodils that find shelter on the island. Elafonisi is located southwest of Chania and it can be reached by boat from Paleochora too. It’s the ideal place for swimming and snorkelling as has been certified with a Blue Flag.
