This coach tour to Elaffonissi departs from your hotel and heads west of our island past Chania and after 2 hours, the coach turns toward the South into the heart of Crete. Our first break is at a small taverna you will have the opportunity to have breakfast and/or a coffee. A 30 minute ride will take you to the Monastery of Chryssoskalitissa.
 
Chrysoskalitissa Monastery (Greek: Μονή Χρυσοσκαλιτίσσης) is a 17th-century Orthodox Christian monastery located on the island of Crete, Greece. Located on the south-west coast of the island, in the municipal unit Innachori, it lies some 72 kilometres south-west of Chania. Built up on rocks some 35 metres high, it overlooks the Libyan Sea. According to Cretan tradition, the name of the monastery is derived from one of the ninety steps which lead there, which is said to be golden ("chryso" in Greek).The monastery is dedicated to the Holy Trinity ("Agia Triada") and the Dormition of Virgin Mary ("Koimisis Theotokou").From here it is just a small ride to reach the Libyan Sea to the final destination of this tour, the beautiful beach of Elafonissi – the most westerly point of Crete. Here you have 3 hours to swim in the crystal waters and enjoy the beautiful sandy beach and its surrounding nature.
 
On the way back before reaching the National road we will stop at the beautiful cave of Agia Sofia with its chapel, where you can also relax and have a refreshing drink or cup of coffee in a tavern nearby.
 
Following the National Road you will be taken back to your hotel.
