From Ierapetra there is a boat to the Island of Chrissi, some 10 km away. The impressive beaches on the island are actually composed of millions of tiny shells, and Chrissi, like Lefki, was a major producer of rhodopsin. There is some shade to be enjoyed under the small cedars, but it should be remembered that the island is mostly arid.
