A great full day tour from East Crete (Agios Nikolaos town or Elounda village) that offers you the opportunilty to visit the amazing Chrissi island with the exotic natural landscape, the golden sand and the light aquamarine water.
The day trip starts taking the boat from Ierapetra – the southernmost town of Europe – and reach in 45 minutes the isle of Chrissi.
When you set foot on its golden beach, you are not sure whether you are in the Mediterranean or on one of the islands in the Caribbean Sea. The tropical vegetation and the cedars provide ideal living conditions for hares, partridges, quails, and pheasants. Thousands of sea-shells turn white under the scourging sun before the air and sea grind them into fine specks of golden sand – hence the name of the isle (Chrissi = Gold). This island is ideal for day – dreaming, swimming, and trekking. On the island there are two taverns which cater of your nutritional needs.
