Atividades leste de Creta e em torno Makrigialos

Explore the timeless beauty of Makrigialos and East Crete.



Daily cruises with the Pirate ship from Makrigialos to Koufonissi Island. The island is located about 10 miles southeast of the Bayview Resort. It’s uninhabited now, but full of ruins that indicate human activity from the Early Minoan times to post-Byzantine years. The locals like to call Koufonisi as Delos of Crete, because of the significant antiquities that have been found. The island is surrounded by 36 amazing sandy beaches with crystal turquoise waters, that are totally unknown to almost everybody. Some of them, like Asproulas, Hiliaderfia, Faros and Roman Theatre, would easily be ranked among the best on earth.

The tropical island of Chrissi or Gaidouronisi (donkey) is one of the 81 islands of Crete. It is located at the south coast of Crete, about 8 nautical miles out of the coast from Ierepatra. The island is almost flat with colorful volcanic rocks covered in gold sand, purple shells and sand dunes that are surrounded by incredible crystal clear and shallow turquoise waters. From mid-May until late October there are small boats, departing from the ports of Ierapetra and Makrigialos, to the island on a daily basis. A walk in the woods and a swim in the crystal clear water combined with the soft smell of cedar and fresh oxygen, give the visitor a deep relaxation feeling that will become unforgettable. Chrissi is protected by the Natura 2000 Networking Program, as an "area of intense natural beauty", and also has been designated as a wildlife refuge. The island hosts also the largest naturally formed Lebanon cedar forest in Europe.
