  • Notes:
    For a tiiny island, Elafonisos has three absolutely gorgeous beaches, Sarakiniko is featured in our top-ten best beaches of Greece, and Simos is the most famous of the island, but Panagia is just as beautiful as the other two with soft sand, and crystal-clear waters. The fact that is lesser known, and on the other side of town, it is never crowded and mostly inhabited by free-campers who pitch their tents under the trees that line the beach.

    Comments I come from Australia and my husband and myself visited Elafonisos in 2004. Did not go to Simos beach as we could not find parking but instead visited Panagia Beach which was unbelievable. The water was crystal clear and we thoroughly enjoyed our day there. One of the best beaches. I highly recommend it. A bit far to go there but worth it. If you happen to visit Monemvasia, don't miss out on Elafoniso's beaches.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
