Chrissi Island is a paradise on earth with beaches of golden and white sand, crystal clear waters, century old cedar trees and countless small shells along the coast. Because of its infinite beauty and its ecosystem, Chrissi has been included in the European Scenic landscapes protection program NATURA 2000.
To get there one can ‘hop’ on one of the boats that make the connection Ierapetra town to Chrissi. Ierapetra is located south of Sitia and is about a one hour drive by car. The boats leave from Ierapetra at 10:30 and 12:30 in the morning and return either at 17:00 or at 18:00 pm and the journey takes about an hour. The routes begin in May and end in October.
