Make you jump into this magic corner of the island: crystalline waters, sandy beach and warm sun to caress you gently.You'll feel like yuo're dreaming. Advice: if you want to find an umbrella available, do not come too late in the morning.

The sunbeds are extortionate! 25 euros for two sunbeds and an umbrella in the area we went to. If we had known I could have bought an umbrella for that price! To say it is one of the best in Europe would be to exclude...More

If you love a sandy beach and ocean as far as the eye can see .... go no further. This must be the most beautiful beach in the world. I highly recommend it.

Turquoise clean waters! No visible buildings either from the beach or when in the water looking at the beach. Great on-the-beach service by Cervi Bar & Restaurant. Only drawback are the many boats that illegally come too close to the beach.

One of the best and most popular beaches in Greece! Excellent quality, huge sandy beach with crystal clear water! You may visit main Simos beach or “small Simos” . Both can be very crowded!

There is a ferry from the village Pounta. It is shortest way from mainland to Elafonisos. Price for my small Skoda Fabia was 8 € + something under 4 € per person. Ride takes some 10-15 min. You have to board ferry backwards... More
