There are approximately 80 traditional small fishing boats in the island. Most of the catch is consumed locally.

Proud of their fishing fleet Elafonisos fishermen are using traditional fishing methods and they’re very sensible and protective to the sea environment. This is why Elafonisos consist of one of the last and authentic “fishing islands”.

Fresh fish cooked with traditional recipes has turned Elafonisos -from a hidden small island- into a special destination with local seafood gastronomy.

Best seafood spot is the Limnitsas tavern at the Panagia beach in Kato Nisi.
