One of the best beaches in Chania prefecture, quite untouched and unexplored. Many travelers use the area around the beach as a free camping spot. It is actually a cedar forest next to the beach. It is also a favorite beach for naturists. The road up to Elafonisi is quite good and then you need to take a non asphalt road for about 10 minutes. Then you also need to take a walk path for another 15-20 minutes. No matter the time you will need to go there, it's sure that you will enjoy that unique beach.

Full Nature, no Infrastructure and too many Guests and on top of all to many Campers using the few shadow places and the Wood to light their fire.

Elafonissi is so crowded that this is almost a better place to go to. There is some nudists at this beach so if you don't like that don't go. IF you have a hammock this is the place to go to. You can also camp...More

Crystal blue waters, fine wate sands and dunes and natural shade of the pine trees scattered on the nearby hill are a perfect spot for a tranquil summer vacation day. From the parking place to the beach follow the trails (easy) for aprox 15-20 minutes...More

It is a hidden gem accessible through an unpaved and difficult road, then it needs around 15 min hike to reach the beach. The wild nature with the rocks and trees make the place a piece of heaven. The beach is huge with a hundred...More

You need a car. And one with a good ground clearence if you can eftort it. It is a bit secluded, which is why it is so unspoiled. Get your hands on a good roadmap and stick to the southern coastline from Elafonissi.
