Guest14 July 2016Прочитав перед поездкой многочисленные отзывы о достоприметательностях острова, у нас было огромное желание попасть на пляж Элафониси - розовый пляж. До этого пляжа мы ехали 250 км и не пожалели, пляж действительно прекрасен, водичка разных оттенков и розовое побережье просто завораживает своей красотой.
