A subtropical little paradise with white sand beaches, turquoise waters and a unique cedar forest. Take your scuba diving equipment as it is worth paying a visit to the beautiful underwater scenery.

Take a boat at 10.00 am (or there about) from the quay of Ierapetra to visit this small uninhabited island 8 miles south. Boats return to Ierapetra at 5.00 pm.

There is a tavern where basic food can be had as well as plenty of fresh fish as it is the fishermen shelter.

Check the website to learn more about this paradise!

2006: So it was totally different 3 years ago - less tourists, only one taverna, clean beaches. Now - 2 tavernas, plastic bags and bottles, to many tourists... The same destiny as Balos beach...it is sad....pictures are in album: The lost paradise
