Trip Advisor: Elafonissi among the best beaches of the world

Trip Advisor published the list with the 25 best beaches in the world for 2015, after a vote by its visitors. Only one greek beach managed to be included in the list and is the tenth best beach in the world.

Elafonissi is the only greek beach that was voted on the 10th place. In total, it gathered 1930 reviews from the Trip Advisor community. 1477 visitors rated it as excellent, 320 as average, 97 as poor and 13 as terrible. Next to the main picture, the travel site mentions the comment of a visitor:

«The sea was calm and beautiful. The colours are intense—light blue water, pink sand. Paradise». Many comments for the wonderful sea and sand colour follow as well.

Elafonissi is the beach «jewel» of southwestern Crete, that both Greek and foreign tourists love for its turquoise waters and pink, in several places, sand. It is a long and narrow peninsula, which often «breaks» at the beginning, giving the feeling of a separate islet. To reach it, you have to walk 200 meters of the lagoon.
It has been included in the protected areas Natura, as it is full of dunes with sand lilies and cedars. Also, it is home to the endangered turtles careta careta and many species of rare animals. It is strictly forbidden to cut plants or even get a bottle of sand with you.
