Elafonissi beach

By bliba  
Elafonissi (some people also call it Elafonissos or Elafonisi) is something like an island and a peninsula, because to reach the island you have to walk through the sea.

It is located in the southwest end of the prefecture of Chania, Crete, about 70km from the city of Chania.

Elafonisi is a place of an exceptional natural beauty, and it has been included in the Natura 2000 Protection Program. Someone could say that nature made its wonder in Elafonisi.

That's why Elafonissi beach is such a popular destination in the prefecture of Chania, and a top of the top things to do / excursion from all over Crete.

a beautiful beach .....a paradise in autumn and winter but in summer the beach should be avoided - unfortunately overcrowded

thanks for looking

I certainly looks very inviting, Ollie! Norwegian fjords with water at 7c is not the same!

Very nicely composed, Ollie, as has been said, with the horizon on the top third, emphasising the tempting water.

I do like these low level view points in your seascapes, Oliver.

Yes, a great point of view, looks like you were waist-deep in the water there, Oliver - hope you managed to keep the camera dry! 😁👍
