THE COUNTY / ISLAND OF ELAFONISOS - PELOPONNESE GREECE
The small island of Elafonisos is probably one that doesn't immediately spring to mind as a famous Greek Island, such as Santorini or Mykonos.
Though this island is relatively small, and maybe not as glamorous as some of the others, it is well worth visiting if you get the chance.
The island is one that is very popular with Greeks, and is not one that has embraced mass tourism on any kind of scale. This is what makes this island so special, and a delight to visit.
This island is perfect if you want to get away from the tourist stigma attached to some of the other Greek Islands, where you will find endless bars, clubs and overcrowding.
Elafonisos is the complete opposite, offering an insight into how most of the Greek islands were before they embraced tourism on such a large scale.
Elafonisos is also where you will find some of the best beaches in the whole of this part of Greece. Simos is a huge bay of white sand, and offers visitors a truly beautiful beach on which to relax and enjoy the crystal blue waters.
The island offers a selection of restaurants and tavernas where you enjoy a very tasty meal, especially fish that is caught on a daily basis.
Elafonisos is ideal for your summer travels, and it's charm and simplicity is something that you will appreciate the moment you arrive.
