A trip to this famous lagoon which is located in the south- west corner of crete , with its chrystal clear water and pink coral sands is unforgettable. On the way to our destination the drive takes you inland via the spectacular Topolia Gorge and the through many old traditional and very Typical Cretan villages . The first stop enroute to the beach is the St Irini (Agia Irini)cave- there are about 240 steps up to the cave with stalagmites , stalaktites and the small chapel.Continuing along west and through the lush chestnut &Monastery of Chrysoskaliitissa where views are magnificent and the white washed walls with blue window trim is the sort of thing you see on Santorini.The myth of the monastery is that if you are without sin , there you will be able to see on the first of the 90 steps leading up to the monastery turn to gold, hence the name Chryssoskalitissa -golden step. A few kilometres further on you arrive at Elafonissi beach around midday.You can have a sunbed or wade across to the island. In peak season it can be a very busy beach. There are canteens for drinks and snacks. On the way back we make a nice stop at a traditional Cretan winery, where you have an opportunity to taste (gratis) different typical Cretan Wines.
