Holiday Villas in the Resort of Istron

The village of Istron is situated about 10 miles to the east of Aghios Nikolaos, which is the main town and according to local myth has a bottomless lake. There is a selection of mini markets in the resort of Istron providing all the day-to-day necessities. For more variety, larger supermarkets can be found on the outskirts of Aghios Nikolaos. The local market in Aghios Nikolaos sells local fruit, vegetables and cheeses as well as linens and some clothes.

Exploring Istron On Villa Holidays
Istron

Istron has many shops which are visited by both the locals and tourists. These fringe the main road which leads from Aghios Nikolaos to Sitia, making it a great base to explore the eastern part of the island. There are many places to visit when you want to go and experience a bit of local life. To the east head off to the famous beach of Vai or for the culture vultures make for Zakros, a Minoan site which played such an important part in the Minoan civilisation. Closer to home is Kritsa where the village ladies sell their handmade lace sitting outside their houses whilst they work. One place which has to be visited is the village of Plaka, north of Aghios Nikolaos which features in Victoria Hislops novel ‘The Island’. Hop on a boat and take the short trip over to Spinalonga which was a leper colony until the mid 1950's. The village is being restored and makes for a fascinating visit.

The nearby village of Pyrgos has a small traditional Kafenion (café bar) where visitors can taste traditional Greek coffee. Istron has a great selection of tavernas that serve both local and international cuisine. There is also an array of bars and cafes if you are wanting just a cool refreshment or a light bite to eat.

Stroll through the olive groves to Agios Panteleimonas with the church on the headland. The sand and shingle beach here has sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire, or just along the main road is the beach of Voulisma. Alternatively, Golden Beach with its fine white sand, sun beds and umbrellas and small cafe is definitely worth a visit. You can snorkel at the beach of Karovostasi which is a mix of sand and pebble, or you can also learn to dive at the centre on the beach at Istron Bay Hotel.
