Chrissi is a small island on the southern side of Crete. This island can be reached by boat from Ierapetra in about an hour and it is famous for the exotic beaches.

In close distance to Ierapetra, on the 24th km from Agios Nikolaos to Ierapetra and close to the village of Vassiliki, is the impressive Gorge of Ha. Crossing this gorge is very dangerous due to the abrupt rocky landscape.

The Kales Fortress of Ierapetra stands right at the entrance of the port. It was constructed by the Venetians in the 13th century but not much of the castle remains today.

One of my favourite coastlines, the spectacularly stony and stunning Plaka, pure paradise!

In the early morning hours, when many of us are cursing - oops! - I mean, hitting -  the snooze button for a few more precious minutes of sleep, before facing tedious traffic on the ride to work, this fisherman in Agios Nikolaos, Crete, has just finished his shift, and quietly docks his boat next to the only other vessel on the shore, until his next traffic-free trip out to sea.
Seaside dining, is in itself, very appetizing, but so are the views from Plaka. In the distance, the island of Spinalonga, the Venetian fortress that subsequently became a leper colony in 1903.

Freshly caught octopus, a Cretan specialty, is offered by most seaside taverns, like this one in the fishing village of Plaka.
