Full description
Experience life as castaway on a desert island in the Libyan Sea. Depart Heraklion for the uninhabited island of Chrissi, setting sail from Ierapetra on the southern coast of Crete. Look for yellow-legged gulls and dolphins as you cross the water.

Then, drop anchor upon arrival at Chrissi, and get back to nature in the wildlife refuge area. Discover the intense beauty of its pristine beaches, and see shell fossils in the volcanic rocks.

Enjoy the shade of the ancient cedar forests, and encounter an old salt marsh and Roman tombs. Go to the small Church of St. Nicolas and soak up the peace of an island paradise far from the crowds.
