Approximately 12 kilometers outside of Agios Nikolaos, towards Sitia, lies Istros (or Boulisma as it is also called). A marvelous beach, worth a stop for a quick dive. White sand and clear-blue water, with green slopes, compose a background that will impress you. Istros is our suggestion for a bit of calm and relaxation. There are available recliners and umbrellas. You can find coffee in the cantina and taverns in the surrounding area.
