Our adventure starts in the beautiful city of Ierapetra which is our first stop and is located on the southern coast of the island. From here, a short boat trip of about 9 miles and 1 hour takes us to the secluded island of Chrissi. 

During the journey, we may even be accompanied by yellow-legged gulls and dolphins that enjoy the magic of the Libyan Sea. We finally drop anchor to the “Island”, as the locals are used to calling it. Of course, other names include Golden Island and Donkey Island. Chrissi is the most graphic of the Mediterranean islands without human touch. The golden sand, the crystal clear waters, the roots of the cedars, the abundance of shells and the beautiful forest make it look like the last paradise of Europe, and it is already protected as a National Park.

After about 4 hours of unforgettable moments at this wonderful retreat we will board our boat again to return to Ierapetra and from there begin our return to our hotels.
