Full description
Venture out to sea to spend a day on the secluded island of Chrissi off the south coast of Crete.

Following a pick-up from your hotel on Crete, transfer to Ierapetra for a relaxing 45-minute cruise to Chrissi. Sit back and enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you. Sunbathe on the deck of the boat as you cruise along the coast of Crete. As you approach Chrissi, take in the beauty of its shoreline and get a few photos of the island from the water.

On landing, sunbathe on long stretches of sand, or go for a swim in the shimmering turquoise waters. Alternatively, take a walk through the cedar forest. Chrissi is a protected natural reserve and features spectacular pristine scenery. Follow a path through Europe's largest natural forest of Lebanon cedars. Arrive at a beach with white coral sand, purple shells, and fossils. Spend some time in the woods, swim in crystal-clear waters, or just enjoy the fresh air.

Whether you want to lounge on the sand, bring some snorkeling gear for a memorable dive under the waves, or visit the Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas, you can find a full-day of adventures before returning to Crete.
