Istron beach


Golden Beach at Istron, also called Voulisma beach, is a beautiful beach with golden sand and turquoise water. Next to the main road is a sign ‘Voulisma beach’, where you find a parking area.  From there steps go down to the beach below. At the top of the stairs is a little kantina for drinks and snacks, and across the main road is a taverna when you want to really eat and drink something.

The beach is highly organized with showers, pedal boats, and full of beach chairs for rent. In summer it can be very crowded there, but outside of these months Golden Beach is a really beautiful beach with a tropical feeling and definitely worth a visit. Great place to cool down when you are on a road trip, f.e. coming from Gournia or Agios Nikólaos. The only negative, besides the crowds in summer, is when the wind comes from the wrong direction and the currents bring in rubbish in the otherwise clear waters. Fortunately there are quite a few other beaches around, where you can go if this is the case. To the west lies a smaller beach that is more secluded and protected. When the season ends, of before it really begins, and there are no beach chairs and umbrellas, it is just gorgeous and certainly worth a visit.
