    The island of Chrisi is protected by the state as one of the last "heavenly places" on earth. The unique reserve got its name because of the golden sand that covers the whole island and is formed from fragments of small shells. A lot of visitors come to the island because of the exceptional natural beauty.

    After a few minutes of walking on the cedar grove you will find yourself on the most popular beach in the northern part of the island reminding the Caribbean crystal clear azure water and white golden sand. A shallow entrance to the sea especially attracts tourists with children.

    In the western area, the more tranquil part of the island, a rocky beach with bicentenary cedars is suitable for a more secluded holiday.
    In the west of Hatziwolak beach, traces of the Minoan settlement, which flourished through the trade, were discovered. This precious red dye was obtained from shells and used for dyeing royal clothes. Nearby is a small church of St. Nicholas, the old salt works and the lighthouse of the island.

    And on the opposite east side of the island with a wonderful view of the small island of Micronisi - a haven for migratory birds, stretches the beach making it an ideal spot for swimming with a mask.
