Set sail for Elafonissi Island a Mediterranean paradise outside the traditional tourist pale.

White sands and dunes flanked with lilies look out over turquoise waters beyond imagining.

Enjoy a swim in the temperate waters or luxuriate on the beach.

There is an optional scenic cruise offered along the rocky southern coast to the quaint town of Paleochora, where you’ll explore an historic monastery and have free time to walk around.


  • Please make your way to the Minoa Palace Hotel in Chania to embark on this Elafonissi Island paradise tour. You will be taken by air-conditioned coach to Chania harbor, where you will catch a boat to the island of Elafonissi (ticket not included). The island is popular among Greek vacationers, but remains a well-kept secret among outsiders, making it a refreshingly secluded retreat. Recline on the superb sands or enjoy a swim in the bath-like waters of the Mediterranean. You can also take an optional cruise along the scenic southern coastline to the sleepy town of Paleochora and take some time to stroll around. You will be returned to the Mainroad Hotel Minoa Palace in Chania at tour’s end.
