Chrissi Island is a place worth traveling to were you can take the boat from Ierapetra to the island at the boat habrour. The ticket is about 30 euro, and most people who go there stay 6 hours or a bit more for then to leave and come back. Not all do this though, some go to the islands to stay over the night, or even more. The island offers a huge beach with great beaches but note that it can become very hot there. The island has only afew accessories when coming to bars and cafeteria, there is about only one of each.
The sand is luxury and there are many who travel there with their own boats. Taking with you food and things you need is a good idea as told, there is not much there than the beaches and the great sea.
You could go there and fish, or travel to the different small islands besides by swimming or taking a boat. There sometimes can come dolphins, were such swim around the island and you can somehow see them when towards the island from boat from Ierapetra. Since it can become very hot, taking with you precautions for heat is a good idea. You can stay overnight, or more nights, by taking with you a tent and camping on the sand. Sometimes there might come warnings of not to stay there but if you manage to find a more secluded area you can easier get away with it.
Chrissi island means, "the donkey land". It is a great place worth traveling. Note, that if you skip the boat there maybe local fishermen who can take you in exchange for money or sometimes free.
