Chrissi Island, also known as Gaidouronisi, is a hidden paradise nestled in the Libyan Sea just south of Crete.
Renowned for its stunning beaches with powdery white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters, it’s often referred to as the “Golden Island” due to its golden-hued sands. This uninhabited island is a nature lover’s dream, boasting unique flora, including the famous cedar forest, and a wide variety of bird species. Visitors can take a short boat ride from Crete to experience the serene beauty of Chrissi Island, explore its vibrant underwater world while snorkeling, or simply bask in the tranquility of its pristine shores.
It’s a must-visit destination for those seeking a tranquil escape and a glimpse into the unspoiled natural wonders of the Mediterranean.
