Our journey takes us to the other side of the island, to an earthly paradise, in one of the most fascinating and unexpected places on the island. Here is where we spend the whole day, in a faraway lagoon. A place of exceptional natural beauty, Elafonisi is something between an island and a peninsula, as it is accessible only through the lagoon that connects it to the mainland. You can walk this distance easily, since the waters are very shallow.
Elafonisi is a true heaven of exceptional beauty with intense colors: White sand, which in places becomes light pink due to the thousands of broken seashells, crystal clear blue-green waters, little sand islets formed around are only some of its distinctive features that make this place unique. The beaches are perfect for everyone, especially for children as they are shallow for several meters from the shore. Elafonisi is included in the protected areas of Natura, as it is the place where the Caretta-Caretta turtles are used to laying their eggs.
The legend has it that if you climb up to pay your respects, you have to look for a golden step, which is seen only by a true believer.
