Chrissi island

An absolute must-do in the area, the small island of Chrissi is less than one hour by boat from Ierapetra and is out-of-this-world beautiful. The sea here is shallow and turquoise, the sand is powdery and pink and the beach is dotted with cedar trees and millions of sea shells. The main beach on Chrissi island, Golden Beach, is located to the north and is a beautiful stretch of sand, organized with chairs, umbrellas, and even a beach bar for those who want to grab something to drink. Here you will also find several stalls selling maritime souvenirs.
