Private Day Trip to Elafonissi Beach from Chania

Private Day Trip to Elafonissi Beach from Chania

Make the most out of your stay in sun-soaked Crete and let your local driver show you around in a fully customizable tour! On the way to Elafonissi Beach, you can stop by the Chrisoskalitissa Monastery, an Orthodox Christian monastery located on the southwest coast of Crete. It stands on a rocky, 35 meters high hill, overlooking the Libyan Sea. This monastery is just a few kilometers north of the famous Elafonisi beach. Next, you will reach the breathtaking beach of Elafonisi. Elafonisi is an oblong, which often "breaks" in two parts by water, giving the impression of being a separate island. The island is full of dunes with sand lilies and junipers. Endangered turtles and several animals nest on the island and it is strictly forbidden to remove plants, animals or sand from the area. This exotic beach with white sand and turquoise waters will remind you of the Carribean. At the end of the tour, your driver will drop you off at your accommodation.

Spinalonga, full day professional guided coach & boat & lunch included

From Elounda you take the boat and cruise along the bay to the island of Spinalonga (sometimes called the island of Tears). The guided tour on Spinalonga will both fascinate and haunt you as you learn the tragic history of this island which was once a Venetian fortress and was then the isolated home of many lepers up to 1957 when it was cleared by the Health Authorities, leaving the place uninhabited. The Venetians constructed a very impressive fortress with forty cannons which has been guarding the strategic bay of Mirabello since the 15th century. We get on board again and head for the sandy bay of Kolokitha. Here you will have time for resting or swimming and have lunch. The boat will take you back to Elounda to take the coach. Agios Nikolaos is famous for its picturesque ‘bottomless lake’. You will have some time to discover this pretty little town on your own, to stroll around the shops or just relax in one of the popular cafes and watch the world go by.

Samaria gorge is a National Park with unique flora and fauna, in the heart of the Lefka Ori mountains. It is by far the best hike in Crete, and probably one of the best in Europe. It is listed as a protected UNESCO Biosphere reserve. Samaria gorge is a 16km downhill hike between mountains and a forest, with a river flowing and organized resting places! For an average hiker it takes 6 hours to cross it and there is no food or any other shop available inside. The tour starts early in the morning to take advantage of the shadow in the gorge until noon, but by which time most visitors have already reached the sea! At the end of the hike we rest at Agia Roumeli, a village with few restaurants and beach, before returning by boat to Sougia, and then by bus and car to Chania. It's necessary to wear at least good sports shoes, take a hat and sunscreen. There is plenty of drinkable water inside. The hike is breathtaking, ideal for nature lovers and wildlife watchers.
