In the waters around Chrysi, the variety and populations of marine species keep growing because the waters are
very shallow. Most animal species on the island are spread across the Mediterranean and none of them is
dangerous to humans. The loggerhead sea turtle Caretta-Caretta has been seen many times on the island, but no
egg-laying has been reported there. Finally, there are more than 120 recorded bird species, most of them migratory,
which stop on the island to rest before they continue their journey.
Chrysi has beautiful beaches with emerald waters, shallow bays and sandy beaches with countless shells, rich flora
and fauna, fine golden sand and beautiful colors reflected in the sea. Thanks to this beautiful and preserved
ecosystem, Chrysi has been included in the European network of protected areas (NATURA 2000).
