Chrisostomos is a small seaside settlement overlooking the south Cretan sea, located approximately 75km south of Heraklion. The village offers a few taverns and a mini market. It is named after the ruined church of Saint John Chrisostomos located on the east.

The beach is large with ample space so there is no crowding even on the high season. It has coarse sand and is well protected from the west winds. On the west end of the beach there is a "line" of rocks, that heads towards the small islet of Trafos. This is the old pier of the ancient port of Lassea. On the island and on the beach, opposite Trafos, you can still see remains of the ancient town of Lassea. The beach continues west of Trafos, creating a separate beach called Segrezo Ryaki that faces west. This beach is very close to a Roman cemetery. It is secluded and ideal for nudism, but is also rockier than the main beach. On the west end, there is a spring with fresh water.
