Explore Chrissi Island and its untouched white-sandy beaches with your guide and with some free time!

At the Port of Ierapetra, situated on the south of the island, you will take the ferry (not included). During the journey linking the main island of Crete to Chrissi Island, you will be able to admire the view of the sea and its clear waters! You will have the chance to glimpse the seagulls and dolphins during your journey.

After dropping the anchor, you will then be guided to the white-sandy beaches! The island has been protected for several years and is therefore free from any constructions. Your guide will tell you of the history of the island and unveil its secrets.

You will have some free time for lunch and get cosy on the beach to enjoy your picnic. If you wish, you will be able to add lunch as an option including a sandwich, a dish and salads, and a bottle of water (as a guide).

You will enjoy some time to go for a walk on the island and to freely discover its fauna and flora. Towards the end of the day, you will head back onto the boat back to Ierapetra. You can choose the option of having a transfer from your hotel, and you will then be brought back to your hotel at the end of the day.
