Chrisi island , or gold island or "donkey's island, ( because only donkey can walk the island) is inhabited. In summer there is only a small taverna (traditional simple restaurant.) It is connected with the city of Ierapetra, by small boats and you can reach this in 30 minutes.more
There is only one "restaurant", it is located where the boats leave you. The prices are rather high, it is better to have something with you, as water, especially if you want to discover the island. Otherwise, your primeval instincts will be born again... Will you be a (head) hunter?
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Dont forget water on plastic bottles when you go to this wonderful place. You are in heaven here, but it will be hell, if you dont bring water with you. They sell it there, but much more expensive of course. You need to drink lots of water when you are in the sunshine all day or in the water.
There are many places which are... "one person's secrets", they can be discovered only on foot... Mine is near that small cave you see at the picture, at an ideal location, as it can not be seen -from any direction- and you can stay there with safety (but I won't tell you more about it!)...more
