What you can expect
Venture out to spend a day exploring the secluded island of Chrissi. After a relaxing 45-minute cruise, enjoy the mesmerising natural and exotic beauty around you – sunbathe on long stretches of sand, go for a swim in the shimmering turquoise waters or take a walk through the cedar forest.
Set sail across the shimmering waters of the Libyan Sea and sunbathe on the deck of your boat as you enjoy the relaxing cruise along the coast of Crete. As you approach Chrissi, take in the beauty of its shoreline and get a few photos of the island from the water.
An area of remarkable natural beauty, Chrissi is a protected natural reserve and features a spectacular collection of pristine scenery. After you disembark, follow a path through Europe's largest natural forest of Lebanon cedars to a beach with white coral sand, purple shells and fossils. Spend some time in the woods, swim in crystal-clear waters or just relax with the smell of fresh air.
Whether you just want to lounge on the sand, bring some snorkelling gear for a memorable dive under the waves or visit the Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas, you can find a full day of experiences before returning to Crete.
