Absolutely clear water, great beach, island is also clean! Unfortunately, the journey was very long because we were the first hotel and had to make about 15 more stops and a bus change ... Nice travel companion, everything well and tightly organized. A little time to shop ashore would have been nice.

We came from Heraklion, and the way there and back was a bit long, but that was because of how far the island is from the capital. Chrissi is one of the most beautiful places we have seen on Crete, I'd recommend to go there, although i wish we could have stayed on the island a few hours more.

This is a BEAUTIFUL day out ! Honestly it’s like a private lost island and the beach is so breathe taking, the sea is so clear and clean it’s wonderful. A few things to bare in mind -You must bring cash on this trip , you have to pay for a boat ticket when you arrive -MUST buy/ pack food and drink as there is absolutely nothing on the beach island and it gets very hot - The beach is beautiful however slightly rocky so you can bring protective sea footwear if you wish as it can be a little painful on the feet -Make sure you don’t miss the boat journey back and it costs a fortune to get a taxi back and get there a little early so you can get a good seat on the way back to the coach. Those are the key things I would advice :)
