All about the Chryssi Island Day Cruise.

Chryssi Island Day Cruise

The colorful rocks, the golden sand, the emerald waters, the cedar forest and seashells are just some of the highlights of this day cruise!

The island of Chrissi (or Gaidouronisi) is situated approximately 9 nautical miles south of Ierapetra. Due to its incredible natural beauty and important ecosystem, it has been included in the European initiative NATURA 2000.

It’s an islet known for its exotic waters in all the shades of blue and green, the golden beaches, where it got its name from, and the protected forest with the cedar trees, which are over 200 years old. Chryssi is a piece of paradise on earth, the southernmost natural park of Europe and a gem in the Mediterranean.

We will be sailing in the emerald waters of the Libyan Sea, accompanied by seagulls and dolphins, for about an hour untill we reach the exotic Chrissi, an island of incredible natural beauty and great ecosystem. We will anchor in the south side of the island and its only port.

The nearby beach is ideal for swimming and relaxation under the umbrellas. At the point of disembarkation there is a path that goes through the cedar forest and ends up in an exotic beach with thousands of shells, named Belegrina or Chryssi Ammos. 4 hours free time for you to explore and enjoy the island.

Relaxation, serenity, and a sense of tropical adventure!
