Istron is a very small resort in Crete that is best known for being the site of an ancient Minoan city of the same name. It is also just a 10-minute bus ride away from its bustling, more energetic neighbour of Agios Nikolaos. Istron is popular with nature-lovers, walkers and anyone who has an interest in history and archaeology. It isn’t so suitable for party enthusiasts.

Budget holidays to Istron are very readily available and the resort can be reached from most regional airports. The resort of Istron is located around an hour by car from Heraklion Airport.

Istron is at its busiest and vibrant best during the summer period which runs from about mid-spring to mid-autumn, although rarely gets too busy at any point in the year. During this time, temperatures reach the high 20s and even into the 30s on most days. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring but not massively as this place is very affordable all year round! Aside from a bit of walking in a few scenic routes, there isn’t much to do here in the cooler months.

Although not much remains of Istron’s ancient past, there are still some places to explore including a small museum of local history and folklore as well as old monuments. The other major attractions to Istron are the three main beaches of the area including the famous Golden Beach. Here you will find plenty of facilities, space and places to eat, drink and enjoy a day out at the beach. Because of its close proximity to Agios Nikolaos, we definitely recommend a day or evening trip there too!

In terms of accommodation options in the area, there are a handful of standard hotels but the primary choice in this resort is self-catered apartments of which there are plenty to choose from at reasonable prices. The town itself has a few cafes and small restaurants to eat in but for more choice you will definitely want to go to the shoreline. This is where you will find more restaurants, bars, tavernas and all the entertainment that you could want from a holiday!
