Istron is conveniently located less than 10 kilometers southeast from Agios Nikolaos, Istron is on the famous Mirabello Bay. The name means beautiful view in Italian, and the Venetians named it correctly. This is a stunning bay of pristine waters, dotted with secret coves, gorgeous beaches, enchanting villages, and world-class resorts. As desirable a location as Mirabello Bay is, it still retains plenty of its authentic character. It is developed with excellent taste and respect for the natural environment.
This is one of Crete’s most beautiful and unspoiled regions. Of course, the beaches around Mirabello Bay are glorious. But make sure to take the opportunity to drive inland to explore the countryside and traditional villages such as Fourni.
This region of Crete is famous for caves and gorges for incredible hikes alongside streams and old watermills. For some culture and agricultural education, visit a winery - this generous land has many lush vineyards.
