Perhaps the most vaunted and cosmopolitan beach of Crete. This is a vast sandy expanse which around more than 4 km. Located 75 km southwest of Chania, and we would start early in the morning for a visit as well as the time passes, flooded by visitors. You will be impressed by the endless sandy scenery and gorgeous turquoise waters. The bulk of visitors throng in front of the beach bars organized with umbrellas and sun beds. Elafonisi or Voulisma as officially called, is a Natura protected area . Sea lilies, birds, cedar and caretta caretta are present in the region. As you move away, the less people will find. You can not stay overnight.
