Description

Visit the most popular destination in the prefecture of Chania with its exotic beach and enjoy your lunch at Milia Mountain Retreat.

Sit comfortably and get ready to test the power of our jeeps during our trip to Elafonisi through an old dirt road.

Elafonisi is a place of an exceptional natural beauty and that is why you could say that nature made its wonder there. What characterizes the area and makes it an exotic place, are the little sand islets formed, the shallow turquoise crystal clear waters of the sea and the pink coral sand. The pink and red sand that gets deposited along the water’s edge is produced by the large amount of red and pink shells that gets ground up by sea action.

We will stay there for about 2 hours to relax and swim and then we will continue our trip through Topolia Gorge, Agia Sophia Cave and an old handmade tunnel.

 On our way from and to there, you can admire the beauty of nature through an ancient plane tree, a lot of chestnut trees and vineyards.
