Chrissi island – a secret travel sanctuary | Tanya GO Travel
I bet most of you have never heard of Chrissi island. This small Greek island could be hardly found on the map and stands a bit away from the popular Mediterranean insular routes. I believe, it's purposely done and is related to the Greek government's aim to protect and preserve the island in its natural shape. When I disembarked on Chrissi and stepped on its beach, I already knew it was going to be a lifetime catch. I just needed to open my eyes for all the marvels around. I heard of Chrissi, while visiting some fellows in Ierapetra, Crete. We used to think Crete is the southernmost Greek island, but it's not. Chrissi is. It's about 9 miles (15 km) away from Crete. You can also see the name spelled like Chrisi or Chrysi. Regardless the transcript, the meaning in Greek is "golden". Briefly said, I am going to share my golden insular adventure. You already know about my insular addiction, how much I enjoy being on islands, no matter where, but mainly on tiny ones.
