Chrissi island

South Crete

Our bus trip begins with a visit to the town of Ierapetra located on the southern coast of Crete.

Here we will get on the boat and continue our journey to Chrissi island, the most southern point of Europe. Stay at the deck and enjoy stunning views over the Libyan Sea and, if you are lucky, you may also see dolphins just a few meters away from the boat.

Chrissi is a small, almost tropical island, covered with white sand and cedar forest. Due to its extraordinary beauty and unique ecosystem, it was declared natural reservations and currently protected as an “Area of Intense Natural Beauty”.

Arriving at Chrissi you will have plenty of time for swimming, sunbathing and relaxation. Take the small path and cross the island. You will arrive at the Golden Beach, famous for its fine white sand, crystal clear turquoise waters and the myriads of shell fossils.

The island of Chrissi (or Gaidouronisi) is situated approximately 9 nautical miles south of Ierapetra and it is a Wildlife Refuge. Chrissi island is a habitat of stunning natural beauty, included in the European initiative NATURA 2000.

 Because of the preservation of its natural environment, there is no infrastructure on the island and it is not suitable for people with walking disabilities. 

And if you need more, take a walk around the island and discover the Roman carved tombs, the old salt marsh and the small church of Saint Nicolas.

Undoubtedly, this day will stay in your mind forever!
