- Once in a life-time experience
- Explore the cave of Agia Sofia
- Dive deep down the crystal clear water of Elafonisi
- Swim to one of the most beautiful beaches around the world
In the southwestern part of the island one of the most beautiful and famous beaches in Greece is to be found. Elafonisi is a small island so close to the beach that one can actually walk there from the beach… The crystal clear turquoise shallow waters in combination with the thin white and coral-red sand create a landscape of unparalleled beauty!
The route to Elafonisi won’t leave you disappointed. We pick you up with our bus and our escort from your hotel or a location in its vicinity. Driving through small traditional villages and crossing the Topolian gorge longwise we reach our first stop… the cave of Agia Sofia, a cave with stalactites, stalagmites and a small chapel at its entrance.
Our next destination is…. Elafonisi!
After reaching Elafonisi you are free to relax on the beach and enjoy the lovely scenery surrounding you. We stay on the beach for three hours. On our way back we make a stop at the village Elos, where you get the chance to dine in the traditional tavern and try Cretan dishes (optional). Some time later we head back to your base… our trip has come to its end… we hope that you have enjoyed it!

We keep our group sizes low so you have the freedom to move around and get involved with your surroundings, as well as more personal attention from our local guides. This intimate size ensures that your group will not crowd your experience. You can expect up to 50 travelers on a trip but the average is 30-35. Check individual trip pages for maximum group sizes.
It’s extremely difficult if not impossible to join a tour after it has begun. It is possible to leave a tour early however you will be responsible for your own arrangements from the moment you decide to leave the tour. You would also be responsible for all costs associated with joining a tour late or leaving one early. If you feel this may be necessary please consult a Fabulous Crete Specialist before you book your adventure.
