ELAFONISI-the pink beach

Forgot your tinted glasses?no drama!Once you arrive at Elafonisi, the world is actually pink.A short ride from Chania(situated in Crete),this pink beach beats the beauty of the best white sand beaches you would have seen.Not just that, the sand is fine and the water clear.

The pink sand at Elafonisi

The pink sand is the result of broken coral and shells left behind by creatures called foraminifera.One can spend a whole day marvelling at the beauty of this beach,which stretches to as far as the eyes can see. Go skinny-dipping or enjoy a pint of greek beer.
