A litle piece of greek heaven

There’s not a lot to do on Elafonisos…which is just how its peace-seeking visitors like it. This tiny Greek island is a mosaic of jewel-colored flowers, soft white sand, and aquamarine sea.

Elafonisos is all about the beach, baby, with pristine snorkeling conditions and quiet stretches of sand. Every day ends on a happy note when you can dine on fabulously fresh seafood at a harbor-side tavern, relaxing under a tangerine sunset.

Unsuspecting sailors will be pleasantly surprised as they turn into the port of Gerakas, entering a fjord-like inlet referred to to Pausanias as an excllent port of call. The Acropolis of ancient Zarakas is situated above the modern settlement at the northeastern end of the outlet to the sea.

This cavern has been described as the most impressive limnetic cavern of the whole world. It consists of three different caverns: the Alepotripae, Katafygi and Vlyxada that is the only one that is open for visits.
