Your experience


  • Explore the beautiful island of Chrissi
  • Spend a day in paradise
  • Take a walk through the cedar forest


Are you in search of the lost paradise? Then come with us to the island of Chrissi, also called Gaidouronissi. You will first drive over the narrowest part of the island to the south coast and to the picturesque old town of Ierapetra, which is considered the southernmost town in Europe

Here begins your relaxed boat trip, which takes you across the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea to the small island of Chrissi. Enjoy the ever-changing colours of the water and with a little luck you will be accompanied by dolphins along the eight-kilometre stretch, swimming and jumping out of the water just a few metres from the boat

Then it is right before your eyes: Chrissi, the Golden Island, the last piece of land before the African coast 360 kilometres away. This semi-tropical paradise offers you fantastic beaches of millions of colorful shells sparkling in the sun. Its unparalleled beauty, the unique ecosystem and the peacefulness that emanates from the island make it a place to dream about. See the many frogs, limpets and corals, the volcanic rocks, the shallow crystal clear waters, the cedar and juniper trees, the fine sand with its dunes and mosses and the old salt marshes. You will have plenty of time for yourself to find your own private place. Take a sunbath or relax on the sand dunes under the shade of the trees.

A walk through the beautiful cedar forest of the island is also a real pleasure. This is probably the last cedar forest in Europe. Because of its 200-year-old trees, the island is under the protection of the European Union's "Natura 2000" nature conservation programme. It is an area of intense natural beauty - the last paradise on earth.

Experience a perfect day of swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and relaxing away from the busy modern resorts on this trip. Whatever leads you to Chrissi, one thing is certain: you will experience Robinson Crusoe's paradise for a day!
