    Chrissi Island
    Stop: 4 hours
    Chrissi Island or Gaidouronisi, meaning Golden Beach or Donkey Island is an uninhabited island 9 miles south of the town of Ierapetra. Most of the island is covered with golden sand and ¼ of the island is covered from the rare variety of Lebanon cedars. The boat anchors on the south side of the island. There is a path running through the island and its cedar forest to the beach of Belegrina or Chrissi Ammos, an exotic beach. On the east side of the beach, one can find a wide variety of seashells. You can explore another beach called Kataprosopo that faces Mikronisi, an island on the east of Chrissi. On the west side of Pelegrina, a rockier landscape is found on your way to the chapel of Agios Nikolaos and the island’s lighthouse, both worth a visit. As you will be located in one of the southernmost parts of Europe, make sure to relax and enjoy a day in an unspoiled environment by swimming in turquoise crystal clear waters, sunbathe and rest under a cedar tree.

Totally recommended!!! We had a lovely day at Chrissi and the option of pick-up and drop off was much appreciated in our case. The guides are multilingual and make sure everyone is updated with all relevant information as well as general tips about the island. They will also make sure you are on time onboard. Besides the company was easy to reach out to and had a quick response. Last but not least, I forgot my sunglasses in the bus and got them delivered to my hotel on a the next day. This is this kind of a customer service which is difficult to find nowadays.

Very nice trip! First you can have a quick look at St. George monastery and have a cup of coffee. Next stop is in the town of Ierapetra, the southest town of Europe. I advise you to have a look at the main church of the town, it is very beautiful. And then you get to the desert island by boat, it is very beautiful and wild - with a romantic golden beach and leaning trees nest to the beach that give you a perfect shadow to rest. I would also advise not to stay only on the beach but to find a unique little church of 14th century - with bells and icons and very special atmosphere! And in general remember - such wild virgin places are great source of energy, all you need is to see, listen and open your heart...

We booked this cruise with collection and drop off at a hotel near where we were staying.
Booking was very straightforward and the company was very easy to reach and communication with. Many of the other companies required us to drive to them which in some cases would have been several hours.
Our drive to the cruise was very interesting, with lots of local information and history shared with us by our driver (I didn't take her name, but she was lovely).
The cruise was run efficiently and it was possible to buy food and drink on board, or book a packed lunch in advance.
We were walked to the boat by our driver and handed over to our guide.
The day was lovely and we returned to be met by a very funny guy we call El Capitano due to the sailors hat he was wearing. He had a very big personality, was funny and drove fast, albeit safely back to our drop off point.
Would definitely use them again for their other cruises when we go back.
