Chrissi is one of the most beautiful islands of Crete. It is located right across the southeast city of Crete, Ierapetra. Although Chrissi island is a very small island, it is well organised. As you arrive on the island you will admire the outstanding view that will enchant you with its white sand, turquoise waters and cedar trees. There are two tavernas where you can enjoy traditional local food. For those who like camping it is the most ideal place. Also for those who want to relax in a quiet beach they can go to the first beach, which is less crowded. The island offers a unique experience for all ages.
