Going the visitor of the island in a famed near by village,Anavatos,can see from different points,this spectacular sandy beach.

In the west side of Chios,there are situated the most beautiful and pure beaches of the Island and among them the golf of Elinta.
It is a quiet shelter protected from the winds. The sea with the clear deep blue waters and the sandy beach, is an amazing place for swim and sunbathing.

It is a secluded beach, lying on the southernmost edge of the island. Its pure sand and its crystalline emerald waters are a real relight, and give to the whole place an exotic and paradisiacal look.

Ciao Danos,
verrebbe la voglia di prenotare subito talmente è bella questa baia.
L'inquadratura è perfetta perché comprende anche l'albero sulla sinistra che dà profondità ed arricchisce ulteriormente la scena.
Molto belli e vividi sono i colori, soprattutto quelli dell'acqua, e c'è anche una luce perfetta per la buona riuscita dello scatto. Complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Superbe prise de vue plongeante sur une plage de rêve.
L'eau prend la couleur d'une pierre précieuse. Quant à l'environnement, un pur régal pour les yeux.

Hi Danos,
This is a great composition, wonderful sharp colours and details,amazing light and a fantastic landscape,

Dobar dan.
Dobar tekst o mestu i plazi ...
Lep pogled na pescanu plazu sa brda, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar snimka i prikaz, lepa fotografija.
Lepo mesto za odmor i robolov.
Imajte lep dan i vreme, kod nas se vratio sneg, suce ga je otopila na krovu.
Sve najbolje.


Good afternoon.
Good article about the place and the beach ...
Nice view of the sandy beach from the hill, a good composition.
Good recording and display, beautiful images.
Nice place to rest and robolov.
Have a nice day and time, we returned to snow, it melted the judges on the roof.
All the best.

Hello Danos,

Great downward view on this white sand beach. I like the different tones of the water contrasting with the sand. The light gives good colors and the sharpness is excellent.

Best regards


Hi Danos,

The tree in the foreground is helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the beach and of the sea. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.


You have a beautiful sea. Exposure. Excellent image color depth

Hello Danos.
Fantastic shot with beautiful Greek landscape, great POV, composition and colors, well done.
Regards Robert.

Hello Danos,

It cerainly looks a wonderful place; who can believe that this was taken in winter!
The f/g tree, with its rocky shadows, anchors the f/g and produces a fine sense of depth down the the curve of the beach and the clear, turquoise waters.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

A superb high pov overlooking this idyllic turquoise bay. Good sharpness and the fg vegetation adds graphism, depth, layering & tonal range. Good sharpness & color saturation with the yellow red grass contrasting against the water. Tfs!

hello Danos ,
Almost inviting to have a bath there , even I suppose that the water is a little too cold ! For sure , this is an idyllic white sandy beach . Taken from an effective high POV .

Δάνο καλησπέρα,
εντυπωσιακή η γωνία λήψης με την άδεια παραλία και τα καθαρά νερά να είναι πράγματι μιά πρόκληση για να κολυμπήσει κάποιος στα πεντακάθαρα νερά της.Το φως και η ζωντάνια των χρωμάτων είναι εκπληκτικά, με το να σκεφθεί κανείς ότι τραβήχθηκε τέλος Φεβρουαρίου.


Hi Danos,
Very picturesque panoramic view. I like the color of the water and the relaxation atmosphere.
Well taken, have a lovely evening.

Bonjour Danos,
du grand classique pour une carte postale balnéaire vue de haut. Des eaux accueillantes aux mille couleurs. Un endroit qui détend rien qu'en en regardant la photo.

Hello Danos,

good view of this beach, I like the point of view you chose, the light is well managed here also and the composition with the tree on the left is interesting, well seen,

Best regards,

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πολύ όμορφη παραλία με καταγάλανα νερά σε μια μέρα που δεν θυμίζει με τίποτα χειμερινό τοπίο αν εξαιρέσει κανείς την απουσία λουόμενων, ωραίο φως και χρώματα.
Να περνάς καλά, Βασίλης.

Hello Danos,
The view from the promontory, and the inclusion of branches, leads naturally to the view along the shore. Different from the sea are stunning. The quality of the production is excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Hello Danos,
What a beautiful romantic narrow beach, gorgeous color of water, greenery around. ane beautiful sky. Hehehe, everything in one packet. Beautiful bright yellow sand. Oh!!! I wish to be there in this moment. Perfectly well done. Indeed, this is very spetacular place. Awesome. Love it.
All the best,

Kalispera Dano,
A fine take on this beautiful bay! I like the lovely colours, the tight crop (and the resulting depth). It's a very atmospheric seascape picture.
By the way: I know this spot: we visited it in 2009 (we stayed in Mesta and made two scooter trips round the island). It's fab indeed.
Best regards from Rotterdam,

Hi my friend

What a beautiful and lovely

Congratulations nice view

Good job congratulations

Hello dear Danos,
Amazing seashore, perfect captured. Very good layout and nice balanced ligth and colors.
Interesting notes.
TFS and best regards

Hola Danos

I like the chosen POV with the tree as a frame to show the very beautiful turquoise sea
Looking at the date it was taken I understand why nobody is at view at the beatch

Hi Danos, what a lovely isolated and quiet beach.. I guess it was a very hot day with the cars parked in the shade for cooling.. an excellent POV the white rock in the fg giving good depth.. well done Ric

Hello danos,
I like this high angle capturing the shoreline. The white beach fenced with turquoise water is irresistible. Great framing and beautiful presentation.

Hi Danos,
a spectacular sight on this beautiful sandy beach, caught from a good POV, in a very suggestive image that invites to visit this fantastic place.
I like the vivid colors in the water, that they give a high chromatic quality to this composition.
A great work with the light, in a beautiful photo with a great sharpness.
An excellent work, my friend.

Hello Danos,

Here seems to be specified beach for swimming, sunbating and relax, so it's interesting and impressive to see clear deep bue sea and white sand as you're noting. Well composed and beautiful color tones.

Kind regards,

Γεια σου Δάνο
Πολύ όμορφη παραλία με τα καθαρά γαλανά νερά.Μια πρόκληση για να κολυμπήσω, αν και πρέπει να είναι ακόμα λίγο κρύο τώρα. :)
Να είσαι καλά

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
Πόσο θα ήθελα να ήμουν εκεί τώρα και να απολάμβανα τα υπέροχα νέρα. Πανέμορφη παραλία με καταγάλανα νερά και μαγευτικό τοπίο. Αυτή η εικόνα είναι μια καρτ ποσταλ για τις ομορφίες της Ελλάδος.
Καλό μηνά και καλή συνέχεια.

Salut Danos,
Tu as choisi un beau point de vue pour nous montrer cette magnifique plage et la belle eau bleu turquoise. Peut-être un peu trop froid à ce temps-ci pour la baignade mais elle doit être très populaire. Belle présentation.
Bravo!... et toutes mes amitiés,

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
πολύ όμορφη εικόνα με υπέροχα ζωντανά χρώματα που μεταδίδουν όχι μόνο την ατμόσφαιρα αλλά, για μένα, ακόμη και τα αρώματα της καλοκαιρινής φύσης. Θαυμάσια αρμονική σύνθεση που περιλαμβάνει όλα τα στοιχεία του παραθαλάσσιου τοπίου. Εξαιρετική σύλληψη του φωτός. Μπράβο!
Να είσαι καλά,

Hello Danos.
How wonderful beach with the gorgeous color of the sea, the POV is great from a high point that allows us to see this good perspective, the pine in the upper left corner gives a nice complement to the image.
Superb brightness, sharpness and colors.

For centuries those pristine waters at Elinta Golf tried to imitate your glorious greek sky and finally they surpassed its splendor!!

Such a beautiful beach. I like the seclusion, conveyed by the single boat in the water and the absence of any other visible forms of life. I also like the way you've used the tree on the left to frame the image.

I wouldn't mind being on that beach right now! Nicely captured with dof and good details. I like the use of the tree to frame the beach. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Kalimera Danos,
I like the curve line of white sandy beach. This in contrast to the fabulous tourquise water and green hills around.
Lovely and spectacular as noted.
Enjoy a nice weekend.

Un point qui en donne sur ce superbe paysage de Grèce.Des couleurs paradisiaques et une composition bien bien agrémentée par ces branches en haut à gauche.
Bonne soirée

What a stricking view! I'm not crazy for sea, but this one is very inviting. Perfect colors and sharpness.

Bonsoir Danos,
Une baie un peu sauvage où la végétation semble avoir le droit de s'épanouir à sa guise. Elle forme un joli contraste avec le bleu azur de l'eau .Un très beau cadrage qui englobe un petit monticule de pierre dans le coin inférieur gauche et une branche d'arbre qui encadre agréablement l'image.

Hello Danod,
the great curve of this bay with its blue, blue water is indeed a delight to see. It makes me want to book a flight out there asap! But for the moment photos from Greece are tinged with a certain sadness as I think of the economic troubles faced by the Greek people.
best regards,

Hi Danos,
beautiful view. I like the perspective from above which allows us to better appreciate the spectacular beach. I like how the shore makes an attractive white turn. Great well saturated colors. Nice framing with the tree.
Excellent capture,
