Before visiting Elafonisos Greece for the first time, we didn’t think much of it, to be honest. You see, when we think of summer vacation in Greece, our minds drift to some small island in the Aegean Sea. One of those windswept rock formations with whitewashed houses perched on cliff sides. The kind of island you need to spend a minimum of six long hours on board a ferry before you can swim into its deep blue waters.
We often use the word unique to describe places we’ve been to and loved but, in the case of Monemvasia Castle, the word takes on its literal meaning.
