Are you ready to experience the mesmerizing beauty of Elafonisi Beach? With our rental scooters, motorbikes, and ATVs, your adventure to this Cretan paradise is just a ride away. Here’s how you can get there and what you can expect along the way.

The Journey to Elafonisi Beach

Starting Your Adventure:

Hop on your rented scooter, motorbike, or ATV and begin your journey from our office in Kissamos. The coastal route to Elafonisi Beach is filled with breathtaking serpentines and stunning sea views that will make the ride an unforgettable part of your adventure.

Scenic Coastal Route:

As you wind along the coastal road, you’ll encounter numerous twists and turns, each offering a new, spectacular view of the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. The road itself is a marvel, hugging the coastline and revealing the vibrant blues and greens of the water below. Take your time to stop at lookout points and capture the beauty of the landscape. Stop by Beata’s and refresh yourself with a fresh orange juice or a small snack. From her Petrula’s Bar, you’ll enjoy a beautiful view of Lidadiu and can even see Elafonisi in the distance. You can also pet the friendly donkey. 

Arrival at Elafonisi Beach:

Once you arrive, you’ll immediately be struck by the unique beauty of Elafonisi Beach. Known for its distinctive pink sand, created by crushed seashells mixing with the white sand, the beach is a visual delight. The water’s fifty shades of turquoise range from deep, vivid tones to light, almost ethereal blues, providing a stunning contrast to the sand. 🙂

Enjoying Elafonisi Beach

Relax and Unwind:

Spend your day lounging on the soft sands, basking in the warm Mediterranean sun. The beach offers plenty of space to spread out, whether you prefer to be close to the water or under the shade of an umbrella.

Swim in Crystal Clear Waters:

The shallow, clear waters of Elafonisi are perfect for a refreshing swim. The gentle waves and gradual incline of the beach make it a great spot for families with children, as well as those looking to simply float and relax in the turquoise sea.

Explore the Surroundings:

Take a walk along the beach and discover the small islets and coves nearby. The unique landscape of pink and white sands merging into the vibrant turquoise waters creates a picturesque setting, perfect for photos and exploration.

The Return Journey

Inland Mountain Route:

For a different experience, consider returning via the inland route. This path takes you through the heart of Crete, over majestic mountain passes and through traditional villages. The elevation offers panoramic views of the island, providing a contrast to the coastal scenery you enjoyed on the way to the beach.

Spectacular Mountain Views:

As you ascend through the mountain roads, you’ll be greeted with awe-inspiring views of Crete’s rugged landscape. The winding roads and high-altitude vistas create an exhilarating ride, showcasing another side of the island’s natural beauty.

After descending from the mountains, you’ll find yourself back on the coastal roads, making your way to our rental location. The diversity of landscapes and the thrill of the ride make this round trip to Elafonisi Beach a truly unique adventure.
