What to expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your Heraklion hotel and a short transfer to the port. Traveling aboard a small boat (tickets not included), set sail for the island, located off the southeast coast of Crete, and soak up the stunning Mediterranean scenery onboard the cruise. On arrival at Chrissi Island, stroll through the ancient cedar forests to discover one of the island’s most beautiful beaches, blessed with white coral sands, dotted with colorful seashells. Enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure to follow the nature trails, swim and snorkel at the beaches, or grab lunch at one of the seafront restaurants. After a full day on the island, meet back up with your guide for the return journey to Heraklion. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

A beautiful Island
Jun 2018
A lovely day trip from Ierapetra harbour on board one of 3 large boats. Chrissi Island is a very beautiful place, with white sandy beaches and crystal clear aquamarine water. We wre also issued with a packed lunch for the day as there are no facilities at all on the Island. The lunch wa excellent; it consisted of a small Greek salad, a filled baguette, bottle of water, fruit and a choice of hot dish. These included stuffed vegetables, meatballs with rice, souvlaki and several other options.
The boat lands on the North beach but the famous golden beach is on the opposite side of the island, therefore a very hot walk across the island is necessary. Although not a great distance, it is not ideal for anyone with mobility issues and there is no shade en route.
There are numerous sunbeds and parasols whic can be rented as a pair plus parasol, not singly. The cost this June was 10 euros.
Although the beach is sandy, entering the sea is quite tricky as there are uneven rocky surfaces along the whole waters edge, this is also quite slippery and many people wre tripping and falling during my visit. PLEASE REMEMBER TO TAKE RUBBER SOLED BEACH/WADING SHOES. Once you have managed to traverse these rocks the beautiful sandy sea bed is reached and the turquoise water can be fully appreciated.
There is very little shade when waiting for your boat to return so please take a hat and something to cover up with.
