Overview
More
One of the best beaches in Chania prefecture, quite untouched and unexplored. Many travelers use the area around the beach as a free camping spot. It is actually a cedar forest next to the beach. It is also a favorite beach for naturists. The road up to Elafonisi is quite good and then you need to take a non asphalt road for about 10 minutes. Then you also need to take a walk path for another 15-20 minutes. No matter the time you will need to go there, it's sure that you will enjoy that unique beach.

This is a very quiet peaceful place away from the crowds of Elafonisi. The magic of the juniper trees in amongst the sand dunes provide wonderful wind breaks A romantic restful place with no tavernas

This is a beautiful wild and unspoiled beach, that is not so popular thanks to the nearby Elafonisi which takes most of the turist crowds. It has fine sand and natural shade from juniper trees.

You need a car. And one with a good ground clearence if you can eftort it. It is a bit secluded, which is why it is so unspoiled. Get your hands on a good roadmap and stick to the southern coastline from Elafonissi.
