Chrissi Island is one of the 81 uninhabited isles around the island of Crete. Take the boat from Ierapetra – the southernmost town of Europe – and reach in 45 minutes trip the isle of Chrissi. When you set foot on its beach, you are not sure whether you are in the Mediterranean or on one of the islands in the Caribbean Sea. This isle was inhabited during the Minoan period, while its trade flourished during the Roman and Byzantine periods. Later in became a pirate’s shelter. The tropical vegetation and the cedars provide ideal living conditions for hares, partridges, quails, and pheasants. Thousands of seashells turn white under the scourging sun before the air and sea grind them into fine specks of golden sand – hence the name of the isle (Chrissi = Gold). This island is ideal for day – dreaming, swimming, and trekking.
