Absolutely clear water, great beach, island is also clean! Unfortunately, the journey was very long because we were the first hotel and had to make about 15 more stops and a bus change ... Nice travel companion, everything well and tightly organized. A little time to shop ashore would have been nice.

We came from Heraklion, and the way there and back was a bit long, but that was because of how far the island is from the capital. Chrissi is one of the most beautiful places we have seen on Crete, I'd recommend to go there, although i wish we could have stayed on the island a few hours more.

The trip was okay. We were very satisfied with our host, Elena. She spoke many languages fluently and was very helpful. The trip to the island is less fun because you are on a kind of ferry boat with a lot of people and you have to keep your mask on all the time. Once there, you have 4 hours of free time but as there is nothing on the island, this is quite long. So it's best to prepare for this by taking a book or something with you. The view and the beaches were very nice.
