Elafonisi Full-Day Tour from Chania

4 reviews
After we pick you up in the morning from various locations around Chania, we will follow the green north coast just before Kastelli and finally reach the rock chapel of Agia Sophia through the village of Topolia. After a short visit to this incredibly interesting site, we will proceed to the main attraction of the tour! Elafonisi is located on the southwestern most point of Crete and being an oblong gives the impression of being a separate island as it seems to be divided into two parts by water. On the eastern side of the beach, in front of the lagoon, you will find umbrellas, showers, lifeguards, snack bars and changing rooms. In Elafonisi, you will have plenty of time to explore the area and swim in the crystal clear waters!

A tiny but fascinating little place tucked away up a side street but well worth searching out. A friendly and informative welcome from people keen to secure funding and interest to keep this place alive and going.

We spent a couple of hours wandering round and then had to go back on our next visit to see the things we’d missed. The curator was excellent, helpful without being intrusive and very knowledgable, highly recommend.

Dropped in and really glad we did so. Nice to see one of the traditional houses in Sitea being so well preserved. Variety of exhibits of Rural and Town life. Some very interesting old photgraphs ( I loved the first postman getting to Sitea - on his donkey !) What really made the visit special was the attention from the lady working there, she came round with us, highlighting several things and we had a lovely discussion about changes in Sitea over the years.

A smallish museum on two floors but packed with information which is supplemented by the excellent guide, who speaks very good English and is also knowledgable about weaving and old crafts. Well laid out and varied, including home life, schooling, crafts, agriculture and how city living differed from country living. Well worth a visit.

This small museum is up a side road not far from the harbour and is housed in a late 19th century building. It's contents are similar to the other Folk Museums in Crete but what made this special to us was a guided tour by the curator. Definitely worth an hour's time of anybody who has an interest in the country's heritage.
