Chrissi Island (Boat trip and swimming)
a Robinson for one day on the desert island of “Chrissi” or “Golden
Island”. This exceptional outing begins with a drive to the picturesque
town of Ierapetra on the south coast. From here a boat ride across the
azure waters of the Libyan Sea takes us to the Island of Chrissi 8 miles
away from the coast. During the journey you can sometimes observe the
dolphins in their natural habitat, seemingly showing off as they swim and
leap into the air, just a few meters away from the boat.
Island is the most southern as well as the hottest point in Europe with
vegetation similar to tropical, with a beautiful “Lebanon” cedar tree
forest amongst the sand dunes, probably the last existing in Europe.
Walking through this forest you can reach the beautiful fossilized purple
shell beaches with their white sand and crystal turquoise shallow water.
The island is now protected as an “Area of Intense Natural Beauty” as
it looks like the last paradise on Earth.
perfect day for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and relaxation away from
the busy modern resorts…
