Full description
Enjoy an extraordinary island adventure to the southernmost point of Crete, an uninhabited island of “Chrissi” or “Golden Island”. Explore the fine reddish sand, walk on the pristine beaches, swim and snorkel in the shallow crystal clear water. Begin with a comfortable bus transfer to the port of Ierapetra then, board the ferry. Take a short boat trip to the secluded island of Chrissi. You may even be accompanied by yellow-legged gulls and dolphins that enjoy the magic of the Libyan Sea. Discover the secluded, isolated, almost tropical island in the most southern end of Crete. The peacefulness of this unique ecosystem is bound to steal your heart. See myriads of shell fossils, limpets and corals. Be in awe at the natural beauty and the magical sandy beaches. Return to Ierapetra by the same boat in the afternoon then, get transferred back to your hotel area by bus.

Very nice excursion, really recommendable!!!

September 19, 2021

Very nice tour guide. Unfortunately a useless day since the stay includes 10 hours of excursion with 6 hours of bus and 2 hours of boat for 2 hours on the island. Far too many people and photo different from reality. Without forgetting the supplement of 15 € requested for the boat which was not indicated at all. Very disappointed
