One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Sunny beach, crystal clear water and lots of cedar trees. It is about 1 hour by boat from Ierapetra. Ideal for a daily visit.

Bonjour: nous souhaiterions nous rendre sur l'île A bord du nefeli. Je suis enceinte te de 7 mois et souhaiterait donc savoir si la traversée est agitée ou non ? Si oui; il serait certainement plus raisonnable d opter pour le ferry ... merci pour vos avis.
