Throwback to 26 sept, to sun and warm days, when the paradise was under our nose…Where?
In Chrysi Island!
How to get there and for how much? Probably, these are the questions that pop up in your mind.
Well, the trip costs 35 euros/person, but be careful on what other services you are paying for, therefore make a deep research by asking around because the travel agencies can play you. I am sure that you would rather drink a fancy cocktail than paying more for the same thing. However, there is an option for 45 euros of having barbecue or buffet on the boat, but don’t expect high quality food. It takes 2h from Stalis to Ierapetra, which is the most southern city of Europe and above all, the sun shines 3101 hours per year. There are 2 ferries departing from Ierapetra to Chrysi, one at 10:30 and the other one at 12:00. Chrysi Island is a isolated paradise with white sand, without habitants and is only 5 km long and about 1km wide. Moreover, the island is also called Gaidouronisi, which is translated as the donkey island. Comparing to Spinalonga Island, Chrysi is far better, due to the flora, fauna and clear blue water.
