Elafonisi is classified as its own island and part of the Cretan islands but in all honesty you can walk there from Crete during good weather. The water that separates the two is never that deep and is always warm, sometimes you can walk the whole way without your feet ever getting wet! Elafonisi is a protected nature reserve and it is also the name of the beach on the south west of Crete that faces the reserve. The beaches are a coral colour from the ground shells that make up the sand. As you get to Elafonisi by road you will need to drive a short stretch of dirt road down to the sea. This is OK for most cars, just drive slow. There is ample free parking space near the beach. The main beach on Crete is more or less taken over by sun beds and umbrellas during the tourist season and there are a couple of beach bars for drinks and snacks. Free toilets, showers and a few changing cabins are also located nearby. The walk over to Elafonisi is a must for nature lovers and has marked trails to preserve the plants and trees that grow on the nature reserve.
