Walking & Hiking
One of Istron Bay’s advantages is that it is located in the heart of green Crete. The hotel is set amidst monasteries, unspoilt nature, Minoan sites, blue beaches, byzantine chapels and dreamy landscapes imbued with the unique culture of the Cretan people. Here the connection with Nature is almost metaphysical: Divine.
- Some nearby trails are towards: the Faneromeni Monastery, the Minoan antiquities of “Gournia”, the ante-Minoan village of “Vrokastro”, the old “Kalo Chorio”, and the Panaya Vryomeni Monastery.
