    Tour description:

    Cruise to the golden island of Chrissi and have a blissful relaxation on the paradise beach. Golden sand, the singing of cicadas playing their love song, turquoise waters and millions of shells washed up on the shore make us feel like in paradise. Peace, undisturbed by human activities.

    If you love natural beaches and beautiful sea views, away from the hotel resorts, there is no better choice than a cruise to one of the uninhabited islets surrounding the queen of Greek islands. The golden island of Chrissi is one of the best known. Located off the south-eastern coast of Crete, it is actually the remains of an undersea volcano that rose from the sea millions of years ago.

    ​White and golden sand, the richness of shades of the color of the sea and millions of crushed and washed-up shells make you feel like you are in paradise. In addition, during the summer, we are accompanied by the love song of numerous cicadas hiding in the trees of the cedar forest. This forest covers almost the entire island and is the largest such forest in Europe.

    A trip here is a wonderful relaxation and a carefree day for the whole family. Imagine the time spent on the beautiful beaches of Chrissi Island, the crystal clear water of the Libyan Sea surrounding it, white, fine sand and lots of shells. All this and the beautiful photos will make this day unforgettable.
