How to Get There
You can go by car up to a point after that you need to walk. Take the dirt road that branches off 2 km before Elafonisi and passes through the plastic greenhouses. There are some side branches, so take care not to get lost. On foot, follow the European E4 long distance path from the beach of Elafonisi.
Also, we would advise you to have a look at a map to have an idea of where you are going before you start from Kissamos or if you start from Elafonisi. Keep in mind that you might need to ask some of the locals for some direction since this beach is out of the main roads.
- Although there are trees for shade, if you are going only there an umbrella might be a good thing to have.
- Make sure you have 1-2 bottles of water with you.
- The pebbles at the beach can get very hot in midday times.
