My Adventure on the Island of Crete - Day 5 希腊克里特岛之旅 - 第五天

in cn •  last year

We've had the perfect holiday in Crete so far. Most of our friends back home advised us not to miss out a visit to Elafonisi beach. An almost 4 hour drive from Malia at Northeast side of the Crete island, all the way down to southwestern Elafonisi.

Although it is a long journey, the route we travelled on was scenic and beautiful, featuring breathtaking landscapes whilst passing through some peaceful villages with aged, traditional houses. They were literally coloured red, pink and white shades! We even saw a few wild goats enjoying some fresh grass in between the rocks!

I must say that navigating up these roads was definitely a challenge, as it has many very tight corners where the visibility around corners can be almost zero! It is also worth mentioning that the road are extremely narrow where only a single car can pass. So you definitely do not want to meet a coach coming from the other side, lol.

When we arrived at Elafonisi beach, there were ample places where people could park their cars and quad bikes.

The beach itself is a sight to behold, truly spectacular. The water is crystal clear, changing from pale turquoise to deep aquamarine blue. The sand is soft and golden mixed in with pink minerals. In some area, more pink and in others less so, which I found fascinating to see.

Elafonisi island is only 100 meters from the coast, which is close enough to reach by foot via Crete and the waters are shallow – no higher than an average adult’s knee! A trek to its highest point offers mind-blowing views of the beach, sea and landscape below.

Stepping on the soft pink and gold sand, surrounded by the sparkling water and the gentle rose dunes, it all felt so blissful and hypnotic! I've always loved the sea as it provides us with a deep sense of freedom and peace, but this was like nothing I ever witnessed before. A magical dreamscape if ever there was one!

The water is so crystal clear. So with the aid of my googles, I discovered some patches of sea grass on the bottom, where miniature fish were swimming around my feet in small groups. How wonderful is that! Elafonisi has got to be one of the most beautiful places on earth!

2017-06-17 09.35.40.jpg

This natural gem is hardly a secret as there are hundreds of umbrellas and lounge chairs to choose from on the beach. Due to the water being shallow and warm, it is ideal for families with small kids to hone their swimming skills without much fuss.

2017-06-17 09.29.52.jpg

2017-06-17 09.33.34.jpg

Elafonisi is a place worth visiting at least once in your lifetime!


After an amazing day out at the beach, my lovely husband @ezzy took me to a romantic meal in San Giorgio located in the old town of Malia.

2017-06-19 22.58.38.jpg

2017-06-19 22.59.40.jpg

The place is beautifully decorated. Green plants and flowers were scattered everywhere. A serene, laid back setting with soft, relaxing music playing in the background and the cool evening breeze all helped create a truly authentic and memorable dining experience.

2017-06-22 20.47.59.jpg

There is a lovely courtyard outside across the road with a pretty little church right next to it. As the restaurant is split into two parts, you can also choose to eat on the upper floors of the building opposite for a better view of the old town.

2017-06-19 23.03.08.jpg

Our starter was garlic bread with cheese in a basket which was absolutely gorgeous. Fresh baked bread with a crisp crust and freshly chopped garlic paste. Yummy!

2017-06-22 20.48.46.jpg

Just when I thought things could not get any better, my main course arrived, being Lamb Kleftico and this is without doubt one of the best lamb dishes I have ever eaten. The taste was out of this world, cooked with flavouring from all the famous "Cretan" herbs and presented straight from the oven in a Roman clay pot. Just great!

2017-06-19 23.02.35.jpg

@ezzy had the Pork Souvlaki as a high recommendation from our lovely waitress Christina. The chunky pork meat cubes was so juicy and full of flavour. Another dish that is certainly not to be missed!

2017-06-22 20.49.53.jpg

Desserts were Baklava and Strawberry Delight, which were both of equal culinary excellence!

2017-06-19 23.04.49.jpg

2017-06-23 00.05.11.jpg

When we requested our bill, they offered us a small bottle of Raki (a customary drink here in Crete made from grapes) and complimentary slices of water melon. How sweet the people here in Crete are and what a lovely way to end a perfect night!

2017-06-23 00.05.28.jpg

We had an amazing time at San Giorgio. Really loved the home-cooked style food within beautiful décor surroundings and superb food presentation and flavours. This place is a must-visit when in the great town of Malia on the gorgeous island of Crete!


我们在希腊最大的岛屿克里特岛上已度过了快乐的四天,许多来过的朋友都建议我们不要错过这里最美的海滩Elafonisi, 别名叫粉红色海滩。Elafonisi 处于克里特岛西南端,距离我们所在的 Malia 几乎有4小时的车程。

虽然是漫长的旅程,沿途的风景确实非常迷人。在路上的高山处往回看,S型的山路和山下的海滩尽收眼底。我们穿过几个安静的小村庄,各色的传统房子点缀其间,红色,粉红色还有白色,非常温馨协调!我们甚至看到几只野山羊在岩石之间吃草,呵呵。

克里特岛上的山路特别崎岖,在道路上驾驶绝对是一个挑战。各种狭窄的角落,各种悬崖转弯,可见度几乎是零。所以每次我开到转弯的地方都会默默祈祷,千万别有旅游大巴迎面开过来,哈哈。

我们终于到达Elafonisi 海滩了,这儿有充足的停车位以方便观光巴士或是自助游的游客们。

海滩非常美丽迷人,海水清澈见底,由于比较浅,呈现淡淡的蓝色,远处深海又是蔚蓝色的。沙滩上散布这数以万计的粉红色贝壳碎粒,在阳光下泛着粉红的光芒,美极了!

Elafonisi 岛距离海岸仅有100米。这里是浅滩,水深不高于普通成年人的膝盖。据说落潮时可以踏着水走到对面的小岛!跋涉到Elafonisi岛的最高点,可以欣赏到群山,海滩与大海的迷人风景。

在柔软的粉红色沙滩上,被闪闪发光的水与温柔的玫瑰沙丘包围着,这一切恍惚如同梦境,却又真实存在,与幸福! 我一直爱看海,喜欢那种宽阔与自由的感觉,这里简直就像天堂般美妙!

海水如此清澈,透过潜水眼镜我能看到一群鱼儿在我脚下畅游,与我同乐,哈哈!

这个天然宝石当然不是秘密咯,因为海滩上有数百个太阳伞和沙滩椅可供选择。 由于水比较浅而且温暖,特别适合有小孩子的家庭。

Elafonisi 海滩的确是值得一游的好地方。


在海滩度过一个美好的一天以后,先生@ezzy带我去了位于 Malia老城区 San Giorgio 餐馆享受烛光晚餐,呵呵。

这家餐馆非常有特色,到处都布满了绿色植物和花朵,非常宁静,悠闲的环境。配上背景中播放的柔和轻松音乐,习习凉风,的确营造出非常浪漫有风情一个夜晚。

外面有一个美丽的庭院和一个漂亮的小教堂在旁边。餐厅分为两部分,客人还可以选择在对面大楼的楼上用餐,以更好地欣赏老城区的美景。

我们的前菜是大蒜芝士面包。新鲜出炉的面包内软外酥,配上新鲜大蒜酱和芝士铺在表面,好吃!

主菜 Lamb Kleftico ,这无疑是我吃过的最好的 。这道菜就是嫰羊腿肉包裹上土豆,辣椒等在木火炉中慢慢烤制。它的秘诀是用了的多种本地独特的调料腌制,盛放在罗马陶罐里烹制,味道极其美味!

@ezzy点了餐馆推荐的Pork Souvlaki 。这是道传统的希腊菜,猪肉块多汁美味,充满希腊风味。喜欢肉食的朋友可千万别错过哦!

甜点是 Baklava 和 Strawberry Delight 都超好吃 Baklava 是果仁蜜饼,由很多层酥皮制成,再配上坚果,香甜浓密。

当我们结账的时候,他们送了我们一瓶 Raki(用葡萄制作的茴香味开胃酒)和水果盘,呵呵。克里特岛上的人太友善了!

我们在 San Giorgio 度过了非常愉快的一个夜晚,漂亮舒适的环境和特色的经典希腊美食,是来 Malia游玩必不可错过的地方哦!

Thank you.

With a rich historical and cultural background, Crete island is a wonderful place with distinctive differences from the rest of Greece in terms of customs, daily life and nature. Crete holidays is an amazing experience and will give you valuable moments to cherish. Located on the southern side of Greece, this is the largest island of the country and highly developed in tourism, without losing its traditional character though. Our Crete island travel guide will give you all the necessary information to understand the region.

·

What a history lesson! Thanks so much for the write-up! Much appreciated advice. :)

You are certainy having a good time, thanks to steemit, we have the opportnity to see this beauty via you. The ice cream and food is yummy yummy, how much will it cost for a family of 4? Upvoted and following you in order to stay in touch and suppor your posts..

·

It's my pleasure, @thegame68. The price of food here is cheaper than in London where I'm living. So on average a full three-course meal may cost you approx 15-20 euros per head.

Thank you for dropping by. :)

·
·

Thanks @rea i am thankful to you for such information. I am going to follow you for your future posts please you also follow me so that** you can also see my journies **

Im follow you and please follow me back at @giigii

·

Thank you @giigii, that's very nice of you to say!

A beautiful beach indeed BUT now unbelievable crowded to the point of being almost unbearable. Visited recently, in traffic for 25+k to get there, lots coming away and overheard conversations etc suggested that it is a victim of its own success, not now worth the hassle, rip-off toilets and parking mayhem. Lord know what it will be like in season. If you do go, either time it right, or expect to share it with countless others as it is no longer one of Crete's best kept secrets.

Very beautiful. That is definitely going on my bucket list. Thank you for sharing your adventure.

·

Thank you for taking the time to check out my post. :)

·

I am glad that Crete island made it to your bucket list, and I am sure you would love it as I do when you are actually there!

Superb photos!

·

Thanks. :)

what an amazing place crete is. i trod on one of those black spined sea anemonies there and the spine didn't come out of my foot for about 2 years! SURPRISED ... I certainly was!

·

Wow! That must have really hurt! Poor you!

Everything so nice the trip but the flowers shot looks amazing.

Thanks

Hi rea.
Seems like you had great time in our lovely island elafonisi is indeed one of the best beaches in the world. But is way too crowded and loses all the magic!
Unfortuantly the island is big and you need to spend a day to visit a beach. If you ever come to Crete again I would recomend to visit some not so well known beches such as seitan limani, kedrodasos, tripiti, domata, iligas. Some more well known is grabousa balos, falasarna and fragokastelo. Note that for a good not well known most of the times you need to walk a bit. The beaches are in chania.

·

Not at all! Thank you for the heads up! That's very sweet of you! Just goes to show how many areas of beauty are contained within this amazing island.

I'm going to use your comment as a reference guide from now on, lol! :)

Thank you again! :)

Delighting the fun of friends, the holiday is stored sweet and beautiful memories, my friend. After I visited your blog. My heart was moved to want to vacation there Beautiful island Either when I can get there. May know friend, how much it will cost for a vacation there.

IT IS AWSOME GUY... HOW THE FOOD IS.... DO YOU TRY THERE Prawn cocktail, steak and Black Forest gateau???

·

Mostly Cretan dishes. They were great.

Wow!! Greece is a definitely a place I want to visit. Amazing views and those pictures are so quaint looking. Very blue too. Reminds me a bit of Tobago, my country's sister isle. Very blue and beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I'll follow you. :)

·

Wow, another place I'd love to visit. Lucky you if you live there! Thank you. :)

·
·

Its part of the same country but a different island. I love visiting there, the island is almost like a big resort. Beaches on every corner, and much more peaceful. My island is more like the business island, and Tobago is like the vacation spot. Definitely worth a visit. Cheers!

very mouth watering and excellent recipes...keep it up @rea

·

So many great tastes out there.

·

Thank you. :)

I'm pretty sure Bob Ross painted happy cacti there!

Looks like an amazing trip! Thanks for sharing.
xo

·

Thanks. I love the meme. :)

·

You won't regret a visit there, I'm sure. Thanks. :)

Real nice photography! And the food in the picture looks AMAZING

·

It tasted just as good, lol. :)

Crete island is one of my Best Place...

·

Yes, so beautiful. :)

Sadly, I had no time to visit pink sands of Elafonisi beach, although it was close from Chania.

·

You can always go again! Hope you are keeping well and so glad you are back. :)

·
·

I will definitely go. Crete is amazing.
I am glad to be back too, and to see you!

@rea Thanks so much for posting these amazing pictures. They bring back beautiful memories. Three years ago I worked for six months in Hersonissos (very close to Malia) at the Star Beach Village & Water Park.

They used to have kick ass parties with famous DJs every end of the week and it was loads of fun.

I don't know how long you're staying but if you have the time here's their schedule https://starbeach.tv/calendar/ The next one is this Monday.

Oh, i almost forgot, another really fun thing - that is guaranteed to boost your adrenaline levels - is bungee jumping if they set up the crane this year again.

Have fun and thanks again for the beautiful photos.

·

Thank so much for the tips! The party picture you showed reminds me of "Club Street" where all the crazy parties took place! I'll look out for Starbeach without a doubt. Thank you. :)

The water on that beach is so clear. Ours is very dark sadly. Very nice pics. Seems like a lot of fun.

·

Yes, you'll love the beaches here.

Great post! Keep it up :)
By the way, I'm following you now
Cheers

·

Thank you, @brnofre. :)

I love crete was only there last month, never got a chance to go to this beach I wish I had now, you've gotta love the Raki after every meal!

·

The other day, they offer a compliment bottle of it. I didn't feel to steady after that, lol. :)

·
·

Haha we got a complimentary bottle after every mean and more if you wanted! Even when I said I was driving they said "it's ok it's just a little Raki"

nice pictures! I want to go!

·

Yes. come on over. :)

Just beautiful...well done!

·

Thank you. :)

Wow Nice Pictures man! Looks like a place you must visit once in a lifetime.

·

At least once! :)

What a wonderful trip. Blue sky with beautiful sea. Stay with the nature is really relaxing. Your great pictures make me want to have a trip. Thank you for your sharing.

Great pictures and great post! It made me miss Greece! Have a good stay!

Oh Elafonisi is my favorite beach in Greece, perhaps my favorite from all the ones I've been. What a place! But the road to get there is a bit scary isn't it? I got there by bus from Xenia, scary but breathtaking, right? Lovely post, I love seeing places I've been, through other's eyes - just love it!

·

Hey Bianca! Thanks for checking my post! Yes, it's an amazing beach. The water, sand, air. It's a little slice of paradise. You seem to be so well travelled.Can't wait to catch up and find out all the other places you've visited. :)

true PARADISE!

·

Indeed. :)

Being Greek myself and never having been, I def plan on visiting this island along with many others on my journey. thanks for the great pics and extra motivation to get there sooner than later!

·

Yes it is great and I hope you can make it someday! Thank you.

·
·

Wow how awesome! I cant wait to go there myself always wanted to! I just added you to my list, new here and love travel bugs like myself;) check out the article I just posted about my trip to Tulum where I became a first time property owner in Mexico!

·

Extremely. :)

@rea that looks like one hell of a trip that you're on! That beach is definitely appears to be a place of wonders. On an unrelated note, I was wondering what kind of posts you like to read here on Steemit? I am doing some research on what the trending/hot posters such as yourself enjoy on this platform.

·

Hey there, @iggyg85 and thanks for dropping by. I love to read all sorts of posts, but mainly life and travel blogs. I'll check you out on here. :)

Travelling is not just about tours but IT IS AN ULTIMATE BLESSING OF ALMIGHTY FOR HIS PEOPLE TO SEE WHAT HE HAS IN STORE FOR US IN THE INIVERSE.
And you are such a blessed person.
Amazing read seriously and i would definitely want you to share your adventures with the people so that even others sought some time out for the LORD's architecture. Thumbs UP 👍🏻

·

Lol, very nicely said! And thanks for the support. :

You should try to escape from it like captain jack sparrow with some turtles xD.

Just joking looks awesome around there. Enjoy your staying!

·

Lol, thanks! :)

Fantastic place to visit, we stayed in Stalis down the road from Malia when we went a couple of years ago. We would also recommend visiting Agios Nikolaos which is about a half hour drive east of Malia.

Very nice post with many beautiful pictures from Crete. Just to add something about "mantinades" that you possibly did not hear about, if you did not visit any of the traditional villages of Crete.
Mantinades (plural of mantinada) are the most common form of folk song and are widespread across Crete. The Cretan mantinada is a 15-syllable rhyming couplet in Cretan dialect. Something like:

“A Cretan does not say in plain words what he feels,
With mantinades he weeps or with laughter he peals!”

"I’m glad to be Cretan, my word I do keep.
With mantinades I sing, with mantinades I weep."

Wow really great post and photos! Love Greece... You got a new follower :)

·

Thank you very much, @redtravels. :)

It was a great trip. Thank you for the amazing pictures, as if she had been there. All photos of dishes look very appetizing. now I want to Crete.
I love sea.

·

The sea has this hypnotic and relaxing effect on most of us so being in such an unreal place like this was magical. :)

Wow so beautiful @rea

·

Calm and serene. Loved it. :)

·
·

Very nice

Wonderfull..!!
In 2 weeks i will goo to Chalkidik it is too in Greece..what do you it is a good choice?

#feelsbad

·

It's fine! Crete isn't going anywhere, you can still go at some point and enjoy! :)

I ever heard some Greek citizens went to Bitcon in 2015 as withdrawal from banks was controlled. I think they are richer now as Bitcon price @ around 250USD that time. However the government is still poor.

Actually I have written three articles about our Crete vacation here on Steemit:

Beautiful trip my friend. Thanks for the lovely, many pictures.

The ECB bought all that with money created in computers out of thin air. May the Greeks watch "300" and fight for their own.

Yes. I hope over time, the situation there improves greatly. Though tourism out there is something that will never die.

I am Greek and I upvoted this post because you deserve it! I never thought that my country has such beautiful places. Thank you for advertising my country!

My pleasure and let me also add, your people are amongst the friendliest nations I've ever come across. You should be proud and rightly so. :)

@rea what a great place :) next time I I encourage you to visit Poland! For example please take a look at a few examples of Night Market's delicacies. It's placed in Warsaw, capital of Poland.
