Elafonisi

Elafonisi is an island located close to the southwestern corner of the Mediterranean island of Crete, Greece. When the weather is fine it is possible to walk to the island through the shallow water. The island is a protected nature reserve. It is known for its pink sand beaches, created by tidal and wave-induced deposits of pigmented microorganisms living in a symbiotic relationship with native seaweed.
