Island
A number of tour companies offer excursions to the uninhabited and picturesque Chrissi Island. Once your boat arrives, you can get orientated by heading to the highest point of the island, Kefala. Sitting 31 m (101 ft) above sea level, this spot provides excellent views of the island. If you're interested in architecture and history, head to the western side to see the Saint Nicholas Chapel, estimated to date back to the 13th century. If you'd like to relax, visit the island's beautiful beaches. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available to rent. Don't forget your snorkeling gear as the shallow waters are rich with unusual shells.

  • The picturesque Island, pine trees (Lebanese Cedar) against a backdrop of white sand. Beautiful view on Crete in the South. Sometimes the big waves. The Sun is much brighter than in the North of Crete. From the port of Ierapetra is about 40 minutes by sea, with all the consequences. Cruise ships often planted tourists to enjoy the island.

  • Go to the semi-deserted Golden Beach on the island of Chrissi and discover that the Caribbean there are even in the middle of the Mediterranean. White sand and blue sea/turquoise are a real show. In addition you pink/Pearly (not to collect completely!) present on the shoreline make the landscape a true enchantment of nature. Fabulous!
