Our adventure starts in the beautiful city of Ierapetra, which is located on the southern coast of the island. From here a (one hour) boat trip takes us to the secluded island of Chrissi.
Due to its unparallel beauty and its unique ecosystem, it is under the protection of Natura 2000 Networking Programme, as a wildlife refuge and an “area of intense natural beauty”.
The pristine beaches the myriads of shell fossils on volcanic rocks – remnants of the time that the island was sunk in the sea. Famous for the cedar forest, the crystal clear waters and the fine sandy beaches, the island of Chrissi gives you the opportunity to enjoy the sun and the sea.
So if you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the civilization, even for a single day, come to Chrissi with us!
