Located just off Crete's southwestern corner, Elafonissi offers an alternative vacation idea for those looking to avoid the larger, more crowded Greek islands. Ringed by sandy beaches and lapped by waters so shallow you can actually walk here from Crete, this islet provides a getaway for travelers seeking a quiet spot in the Mediterranean sun. Although day-trippers from Crete come in relatively large numbers at the peak of the season, you can escape them by timing your visit for late afternoon. Too small for many modern amenities, this tiny tropical paradise features just a few snack bars, where you can grab a sandwich and rent umbrellas and lounge chairs. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Elafonissi and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
