The island is a protected nature reserve, characterized as a landscape of special natural beauty and Natura area along the opposite shores. Depending on the weather that prevails during the winter season, the beach of Elafonisi is shaped differently. Meaning that if one visits the beach for two years in a row, one will notice that the water level can rise, forcing someone to swim to go to Elafonisi and the next to go down, so he can just walk there and vice versa (and vice versa). The island is opposite from an alluvial plain and is separated from the mainland by a shallow and narrow strait 150 meters wide. The island is higher at its western end, where it consists of limestones, while its eastern part is lower and sandy, with sandstones covered by sand dunes. The dunes are covered with halophytic vegetation. The island is characterized by dunes in which sand dunes of the species Ammophila arenaria grow and there is a significant number of sea lilies.
