Elafonisi Lagoon
Chania
It's a fair ol' drive from the north of Crete to Elafonisi on the far south west, not because it is exactly far but many roads on Crete are narrow and very wiggly. May I recommend you take the coastal route down for breathtaking views and fewer coaches, mind the goats - but well worth it.
