Chrissi Island, Ierapetra

(3.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We looked for a white sanded beach that is not too crowded and asked the front desk in our hotel to assist. They directed us to Chrissi Island beach which was great. White soft sands and crystal clear...  more »
  • plan a trip with the ship that takes you to the island which is near; This is a place in the great outdoors a sunny beach with parasols with additional payment but fabulous sea which can be reached from the shore, crossing a stretch of sand dunes and roots of trees all out of the sand to raise the slightest moisture. on the island there is nothing to see, but the colors, water, sand, transparency, peace of mind. you have to think of a good cream for Sun protection if you have white skin because it makes the Sun is hot even if there is a breeze
