Full description
On this full-day trip, you’ll travel from Georgioupolis to the southwest corner of Crete and spend a relaxing day on the pink beaches of the small island of Elafonisi.  During the 3-hour drive to the island, you can sit back and relax, admiring the beauty of the lush green landscapes, traditional villages, and a small church built inside a cave along the way. After taking a short break to stop for a drink, you’ll reach your destination, Elafonisi,  a picturesque bathing paradise with an island that can be easily reached by foot. The water on the island is shallow, clear and gleams with beautiful shades of blue and green. You’ll have plenty of time to unwind on the beach and to purchase snacks and drinks on the island before returning to Georgioupolis in the evening.

The driver and the women leading the tour were friendly and extra helpful, provided lot of interesting informations about the island, making the long bus rude more enjoyable. The pink sand beach was a true miracle, a must-to-visit, if you are in Crete .

It was a very nice trip. Claudia, the guide, was very nice and informative. The time allotted at the beach (3,5-4 hrs) was a perfect amount of time at the beach and the drive to the beach were beautiful. The only bad thing of the entire trip was the amount of people on the bus who repeatedly took their masks off no matter how many times they were asked to put them back on.

Abholung und Transport klappt super. Der Strand selbst ist sehr schön. Er ist sauber mit feinem Sandstrand, wenn die Sonne richtig scheint kommt das rosa richtig zur Geltung. Am Strand selber werden Liegen mit Sonnenschirm vermietet. Pro Set (1 Sonnenschirm, 2 Liegen) kostet es 10€. Wir fanden es ok, so ne Liege ist ja doch schöner als direkt im Sand zu liegen, ist aber kein Muss. Schade fanden wir den starken Wind. Man konnte eigentlich gar nicht so richtig entspannen dadurch. Am Ende des Tages war es aber doch recht schön, man hat ein paar schöne Fotos gemacht, hat einen recht entspannten Tag gehabt, aber mehr als einmal muss ich jetzt nicht nach Elafonissi Beach.
