Infos about Istron, Kalo Chorio area

Istron, Kalo Horio, just 10 minutes by bus from the bustling town of Agios Nikolaos, is a small village nestled invitingly in the Bay of Mirabello.

Here, three magnificent beaches including the famous Golden Beach, along with a dozen Tavernas, half a dozen Bars, Snack Bars and Cafes (some with Internet access), Souvenir shops and Mini markets provide the ideal choice for holidaymakers.

Spend your days soaking up the sun by the pool, taking part in water sports on the beach, scuba diving or simply wandering through the olive groves and mountain paths. Following a short siesta you have a wide choice of eating places from the most simple traditional Greek Taverna to a more up-market Restaurant or why not prepare your own  meal to your apartment so you can eat while relaxing and enjoying the view from your balcony .

After your meal you might like to stroll to our quiet Cafe, next to the pool area, or visit one of the lively Bars to join in one of the various Entertainment Nights including Karaoke, Quizzes, Films, Dancing and Family Games.

Alternatively you could just sit back, relax and sip a cocktail or beer, at our roof garden  under the stars into the wee small hours.

Children are welcome everywhere and some Bars and Tavernas offer special Play Areas and Entertainment for kids, leaving parents free to relax and unwind.

Local buses are cheap and frequent and will take you into the busier towns or to some of the tiny traditional Cretan villages where a donkey is the most popular form of transport.

Taxis are  good value and there is also a wide choice of sightseeing trips and excursions either by bus or boat, to places of interest on or around Crete or neighbouring islands.

With the choice of self catering accommodation on offer and local shops that sell everything from fresh bread, milk and groceries to sun creams, air beds, snorkeling gear and, of course, souvenirs, Istron is an ideal holiday destination.
