Only 3 hours to spend at the beach
Oct 2019
We booked this trip via our hotel for only 20 euros per person, TripAdvisor doesn't seem to be the cheapest option here.
Pick up time from our hotel was at 8h15am and by the time all other guests were collected it was almost 10am. On the way to Elafonisi we stopped over at the cave of Agia Sofia for a short visit.
At 11h30 we finally arrived at the beach where the tour guide informed us that the stay was reduced to 3 hrs due to the gusty, cooler weather. The beach is very pretty, but not sure if it's the most beautiful one of Crete. As the weather didn't invite to sunbathe or swim we walked to the island and visited the charming, rustic chapel.
There are beach bars offering hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, salads, fries, ice creams for reasonable prices, everything you need for a beach day.
At 2h30 we departed from the beach and our tour guide informed us that we would be going to to have lunch. We stopped at around 3h30 at Elos village where the Kamares restaurant expected our arrival – it was pretty obvious that the travel company had a deal with them. Since most people had eaten at the beach, coffees were ordered to pass the time. The tour guide and driver were enjoying their full, probably free lunches. Back in the coach, the tour guide made a sneering comment regarding people 'only' having coffees, which I found a bit off.
After Elos we headed back. The bottom line is that too much time was wasted sitting in the coach or visiting places other than Elafonssi beach.

Best beach in chania
Oct 2019
Enjoyed my trip to this beautiful, clean beach with my family. Water was clear and prefect for snorkelling.
Tour guide was quite knowledgeable. However spent only 3-4 hours on beach.
I would recommend going to this beach by taxi(or possibly by bus) and spending whole day.

I spent an afternoon on this amazing beach which is a must see if you come to Chania. The water is wonderful and the sand is not really pink but it is still a stunning beach to go and relax. The tour was more than just staying at the beach as we also visited a cave from where you also have a wonderful views of the mountains and after the beach we stayed in a restaurant where the food was quite good. Very good tour with a nice guide as well. I definitely recommend this tour.

Terrible company. They were just rude driver and guide. Everyone was annoying during this trip who joined in this tourist company and even they forgot to get us off the bus.

Hello Fumi, we are truly sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us. I asked everybody from the group what was wrong but nobody said about rude driver and guide.. The bus stopped 50 meters further from the pick up point because it was not enough space. Once again we are sorry..

Enjoy your vacation as at home with Renia of Beyond Travel
Jul 2018 • Friends
This is a most welcoming, most professional agency on Crete. I was there twice and having Renia there was extremely relieving. Her devotion and understaning of the tourist type, needs, desires and possibilities are above expected, her proactive approach in being an amazing host is unbelievable. If you ever to to Crete, in Aggia Marina, Chania, or anywhere reasonaly close to Chania, go to Renia, its more than worth checking!
