What to expect

An excursion that gets better and better as the day goes on. Enjoy some sightseeing before an afternoon relaxing in Elafonisi, an idyllic island off southwest Crete. You'll also visit the village of Voulgaro and the Agia Sophia cave.

Our first stop is the Voulgaro for coffee or snacks. Next, it's on to the star attraction. Ringed by pink sands and light blue seas, the uninhabited islet of Elafonisi could hardly be more beautiful. Wade over through knee-deep water and relax on the beach or go for a stroll – there's a dinky little chapel on the western tip. You'll have about four hours of free time to do as you wish.

On the way back, walk up to Agia Sophia, a colossal cave famous for its stalactites and chapel. It's said the hoof-print of St George's horse can be found here. And if you look hard enough, you'll find what looks like a horseshoe print in a rock.
