Chrissi Island South Crete boat trip, 4h beach incl boat & lunch

Chrissi Island South Crete boat trip, 4h beach incl boat & lunch

star-5

Whatever you do on Chrissi island, one thing is for sure: you'll live a Robinson Crusoe's life for a day ! "Paradise Lost" At the picturesque port of Ierapetra we will catch the boat that will carry us over the ever-changing colors of the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Seas to the little island of Chrissi. If we are lucky during the 8 km trip we will be accompanied by dolphins who swim and leap in to the air just a few meters away from the boat. Suddenly there it is the last land before the African coast, the golden Isle (Chrissi). The semi-tropical paradise has fantastic beaches, consisting of millions of multicolored crushed seashells, sparkling under the sun. Walking through a beautiful cedar tree forest, probably the last existing in Europe, is a real pleasure. The island is now protected as an "area of Intense Natural Beauty" as it looks like the last paradise on Earth! A perfect day for swimming , snorkeling, sunbathing and relaxation away from the busy modern resorts...

Starting early, heading west and after a short breakfast stop near Rethymnon, driving past Chania, we reach the port of Kissamos. Here we take our boat for approximately a one hour pleasant sail along the coastline. Arriving in the port of the ex­-pirate island of Gramvousa we hear how, during the Turkish occupation, the residents of the island started looting passing boats thus giving the island its pirate reputation. It is a protected biotope and is host to more than 400 plant species and over 100 birds species. Don’t miss out on a visit to the Venetian castle on top of a steep rock as this is one of the most impressive castles in Greece. There is plenty of time for swimming or lunch on board. Our boat then departs for the Blue Lagoon of Balos, a shallow and warm water lagoon which brings to mind similar lagoons in the Caribbean. Here the crystal­ clear, azure coloured sea water in combination with the white sand makes this place unique.
