Full-Day Chrissi Island Cruise from Ierapetra

Full-Day Chrissi Island Cruise from Ierapetra

This cruise offers relaxation, serenity, and a sense of tropical adventure in an incretable destination. Chrissi is an islet known for its exotic waters in all the shades of blue and green, the golden beaches -where it got its name from-, and the protected forest with the cedar trees, which are over 200 years old. The colors of the rocks, which are mainly grey-green, reddish-brown, black, etc., are spectacular, while almost the entire island is covered by golden sand. The base rocks of Chrissi were created through the solidification of lava that poured out of an undersea volcano millions of years ago. The 49 species of fossils (corals, shells, barnacles, urchins) found on the island come from the sea. They were imprinted on the volcanic rocks 350,000-70,000 years ago, when Chrissi was still underwater. The island is a piece of paradise on earth, the southernmost natural park of Europe, and a gem in the Mediterranean.

Chrissi Island South Crete boat trip, 4h beach incl boat & lunch

Whatever you do on Chrissi island, one thing is for sure: you'll live a Robinson Crusoe's life for a day ! "Paradise Lost" At the picturesque port of Ierapetra we will catch the boat that will carry us over the ever-changing colors of the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Seas to the little island of Chrissi. If we are lucky during the 8 km trip we will be accompanied by dolphins who swim and leap in to the air just a few meters away from the boat. Suddenly there it is the last land before the African coast, the golden Isle (Chrissi). The semi-tropical paradise has fantastic beaches, consisting of millions of multicolored crushed seashells, sparkling under the sun. Walking through a beautiful cedar tree forest, probably the last existing in Europe, is a real pleasure. The island is now protected as an "area of Intense Natural Beauty" as it looks like the last paradise on Earth! A perfect day for swimming , snorkeling, sunbathing and relaxation away from the busy modern resorts...
