Golden beach (Belegrina)
(421 votes)

The thousands of visitors arriving daily with the boat from Ierapetra to Chrissi island mainly swim on the beach of Belegrina or Golden Beach. Bright blue water, white sand with pink shades from the thousands of broken shells, the junipers that hold the sand with their huge roots is the backdrop that makes anyone fall in love with this place.

The island can be accessed from Ierapetra by ferry and the trip lasts about 50 minutes. The beach is surrounded by a protected juniper wood and access within the boundaries of it is not allowed. Collecting shells, sand and anything else on the island is strictly forbidden, and great care is needed not to break branches from the protected junipers. The beach is initially rocky and then turns sandy.
