Elafonissi – Paleochora

Saturday 29th – Sunday 30th July 2017

Two days in the exotic southwestern Crete.

On Saturday morning we set off to Elafonissi with the clear turquoise sea waters and the pinkish sand. On our way we visit the historic Chryssoskalitissa Monastery. In Elafonissi we can enjoy the sea and, later, admire the sunset. We spend the night in sleeping-bags, as the area is protected NATURA 2000 and tents are not allowed. There is a limited possibility for rooms, too.

On Sunday we hike along the coastal E4 European trail towards Paleochora. On our way we come across the beautiful beach of Kedrodassos and the lake of Krios. Our hike ends at the beach of Krios.

We set off back to Heraklion at about 18.00 after a short visit to the town of Paleochora.
