Elafonisos


We took a side trip to Elafonisos while we were staying near Monemvasia last month. Elafonisos is a tiny island off the coast of the Peloponnese. The ferry ride is only twenty minutes. There's not much to see on the island, apart from the stunning, Caribbean-like beach, Simos.

Here's Simos.
Simos is not too far from the harbor. Nothing is too far from the harbor. We drove around the entire island in less than an hour. There are some nice-looking hotels, some insane villas, and a good number of restaurants. You could easily spend a day and a night there, but it would probably start to get boring beyond that, unless you go to the island with the specific intention of marooning yourself somewhere quiet.

More Simos.

I can't remember where this was. Probably near Simos.

Simos from a distance.

We were still there in the off-season, so it might crowd up significantly during the summer. European tourists, especially, like to take in the island during their tours of the Peloponnese.

We spent a few hours on Elafonisos, and had a great time. Simos was one of the most beautiful beaches we saw in Greece.

Have I mentioned that I miss Greece?
