At the end of the summer we visited again Chania, since the pregnancy (6 months) did not allow us for great adventures.

At September 28 we went to the beach Sweet Waters in the region of Sfakia. The access to the beach is by footpath (about a half hour walk) or by boat. Of course we chose the hike. The beach is quite good, although there were some umbrellas. We returned by the same path.

At September 1st we went to Elafonisi. The crowd was less. We walked a lot around the island. It's a really lovely place, covered by fine sand, scrub and rocky coves with small pink crystal blue waters. The landscape resembles Africa, we think that is one of the most beautiful beaches of Greece.
