General information

Elafonisi beach

Elafonisi beach is actually an oblong peninsula which often breaks in two parts when the water rises, giving the visitor the impression that he is on an exotic island. It is a Natura 2000 protected area where white sand Lillys (Sea daffodils) bloom and Juniper trees (Oxycedrus Macrocarpa) grow. The endangered loggerhead sea turtle finds shelter in the area too. Elafonisi is known for its exotic landscape of white sand and turquoise waters which become pinkish in many places, taking its color from millions of shattered seashells. It is worth to mention that the sea water doesn’t exceed 1m depth, creating an ideal lagoon for children.

Its easily accessible from the street be climbing 150 stairs/ In the inside of the cave there are columns of stalagmites (deposits that project upward from the ground of the cave) and stalactites (deposits which hang down the ceiling of the cave).
