  • Georgioupolis: Full-Day Trip to Elafonisi Island

    4. Georgioupolis: Full-Day Trip to Elafonisi Island

    On this full-day trip, you’ll travel from Georgioupolis to the southwest corner of Crete and spend a relaxing day on the pink beaches of the small island of Elafonisi.  During the 3-hour drive to the island, you can sit back and relax, admiring the beauty of the lush green landscapes, traditional villages, and a small church built inside a cave along the way. After taking a short break to stop for a drink, you’ll reach your destination, Elafonisi,  a picturesque bathing paradise with an island that can be easily reached by foot. The water on the island is shallow, clear and gleams with beautiful shades of blue and green. You’ll have plenty of time to unwind on the beach and to purchase snacks and drinks on the island before returning to Georgioupolis in the evening.

    It was a very nice trip. Claudia, the guide, was very nice and informative. The time allotted at the beach (3,5-4 hrs) was a perfect amount of time at the beach and the drive to the beach were beautiful. The only bad thing of the entire trip was the amount of people on the bus who repeatedly took their masks off no matter how many times they were asked to put them back on.
