Beach of the Week: Elafonissi, Crete

Pink Sand Beach on Elafonissi, Crete

We’ve highlighted a gorgeous white sand beach, and this week we’re visiting the beautiful pink sand beaches of Elafonissi near Crete.

Elafonissi, or “Deer Island”, is a small island off the coast of Crete.  It is a popular destination for those vacationing in Crete.

The blush hues of Elafonissi’s sand get their rosy glow from coral.  The shallow, clear Mediterranean water lures you from the warm, pink sand, inviting you to wade out and take an leisurely swim.  This special place shows up on many “Most Beautiful Beach” lists, so you’ll probably just want to spend the day soaking in that beauty as you relax in paradise.

Have you seen a pink sand beach before?
