Double Bay Beach Hotel | Simos - ELAFONISOS
The Mediterranean Exotic




Elafonisos is part of the district of Peloponnese and more specifically Lakonia. The ferry ride from Pounta, in the mainland, takes approximately 10 minutes, but waiting time to board the ferry must be taken in to consideration, which during the high season might take up to an hour. In case you don't make it to the ferry on time it's not the end of the world. You can park your car and cross using a taxi-boat

What's the best way to get to Elafonisos from the Athens or Kalamata airport?

We usually suggest renting a car from the airport and dropping it off at the same station before your departure. The advantages are that you will be traveling in comfort, in your own schedules and you will have more freedom while on the island to drive around and explore different beaches or even nearby areas of interest. The trade-off is the cost, but you save a lot of time from waiting for other means of transportation, connections etc.
