Driving along the national road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia/Ierapetra, you will find Istron (Kalo Horio). Situated on an ideal picturesque spot, provides you with the most stunning views, on the beautifully landscaped Merabello gulf. A small, less crowded traditional village, with a magnificent “mountain-meets-sea” topography, blue star awarded long beaches with crystal clear waters, peaceful touristic paths – which you will love to walk, admiring the scenery and the spectacular views over the azure blue sea. Voulisma Beach, characterized by its tropical color waters and white-gold sand is very popular, well organized and among the best beaches of Crete. Agios Panteleimonas beach is more family friendly and Karavostasi for those who want a more “remoted” beach experience. Istron, Kalo Chorio is located 12 klm east, from the city of Agios Nikolaos, Crete.
