Since we came back from Crete we cannot stop thinking about its food, its people, its landscape, our new friends “the goats”, its exotics beaches…
Finally we found a crystalline water beach!!.
Elafonisi is located in the south-east of the island and we really recommend you to spend one day enjoying this amazing place.
An odd thing about this beach is its sand. If you look at it you will realize that it has a rosy color (although we did our best it is difficult to appreciate it in the picture). Do not miss the chance to enjoy this unique place!
Stavromenos is a touristic place full of apartments and semi-rocky beaches where to enjoy the view and some typical local food.
Here we enjoyed a couple of days. We were just relaxed, we swam in the mediterranean sea and we tried all the regional food and wine that our stomach could assimilate.
Where to eat?
Taverna Eleven is a nice and familiar restaurant located at the beach.
Its menu is narrower as those that you can find in other restaurants because they use local products and fresh fish of the day. We recommend you to try the local wine the serve, tasty! and to enjoy the sunset while having dinner on the terrace.
To finish our trip (and because our flight had some hours delay) we decided to visit Heraklion, a city built 2500 years ago and used as a port city then.
In Heraklion we could find ancient monuments like the Morosini fountain (year 1720) and the actual city hall (date from that time) in the middle of modern streets full of fashion stores.
After those 5 days we fell in love with his island. We recommend you to discover and to enjoy it! If you want more tips about Crete contact us!! We are really happy to give you some tips!
