You'll be a 5 minute drive from Istron's main centre with authentic Greek restaurants, cafes and gift shops.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Istron has a few shops selling clothes, souvenirs and beach accessories, as well as a couple of mini markets where you can stock up on daily essentials. Aghios Nikolaos town is just 20 minutes' drive away with larger supermarkets. If you want to purchase some local produce, there is a weekly market in Aghios Nikolaos on Wednesday morning and in Ierapetra on Saturday morning. Here, the stalls sell fresh locally caught fish, vegetables and fruit. The streets are filled with gift and high street shops which, despite being 30 minutes' drive south, is still well worth the journey.

Bars and restaurants

Enjoy the bustling atmosphere of Istron's main street or take a stroll along the coastline and dine with a stunning sea view. During the evening, you'll find many of the local bars serving up tasty cocktails late into the night. Whether it's wild Cretan nights or pure relaxation, Aghios Nikolaos will no doubt give you a memorable experience. There are chic restaurants, hip nightclubs, stylish bars and locals performing live music, something for everyone.


Nearest to the villa is Aghios Panteleimonas bay, with sand and pebbles by the clear blue sea. Voulisma beach is also nearby with a long stretch of golden shoreline that shelves gently into the crystal-clear waters. A couple beach bars are dotted along the coast here - perfect for grabbing a cool drink on a hot, summer's day. Water based activities are plentiful, with pedalos, jet skiing and parascending on offer.

Family fun

Acqua Plus water park offers a variety of water slides and tubes or you may choose to venture into the wave pool or the lazy river! You'll be spoilt for choice! Horse riding is available in Hersonissos, which is around an hour's drive away. Or, take a trip to Crete Aquarium in Gournes. Many marine animals here are local to the surrounding seas but there are also more exotic examples of sea life too.

Places of interest

A trip to the island of Spinalonga should not be missed. Take the ferry from nearby from Elounda, Aghios Nikolaos, or Plaka and visit the island and the village. Drive up towards Kalamfka and stop at the viewing area where you can see both the Cretan Sea to the North and the Libyan Sea to the South.


The main 18-hole golf course is located just outside the resort of Hersonissos, about 45 minutes' drive away. More locally there is a 9-hole at the Elounda Porto Hotel.
