Chrysi (Gaidouronisi) lovely with beaches appropriate to Paradise.

The beaches have white and golden sands, coloured pink from crushed seashells that are strewn far and wide. The waters are crystalline and translucent with a turquoise colouring.

Uninhabited, it is very lovely with beaches appropriate to Paradise. The general impression a visitor receives is that he is on some exotic south-sea island!

On Chrysi there survives a large cedar forest, of some 85 acres extent, with large and impressive specimens. All the island is part of the European Community’s network of protected landscapes of natural beauty – NATURA 2000, and also guarded by Greek legislation. 49 species of fossil have been identified in the volcanic rocks that make up a part of the island.
