European PioneerRead moreNotes "Elafonisi Beach in Crete is one of Greece's most incredible beaches and is just as much as a secret as Yiayia's recipe for Baklava! Wade through the translucent shallows to reach the tiny islet facing this nature reserve beach at the southeastern tip of Crete. It’s unusually quiet and known mostly to locals. One of the most incredible things about it is the contrast of the pinkish sand against the vibrant blue water."
