Nestled at the northeastern edge of Crete, Agios Isidoros is a secluded coastal spot renowned for its wild beauty and its unique landscape shaped by the salty sea and winds. Home to a church and lighthouse that bear the same name, the area also features the ruins of an old 14th-century temple and a 4th-century temple beneath the waves. Agios Isidoros provides an ideal setting for a peaceful getaway, offering a small beach of sand and rocks, perfect for fishing as the waters are teeming with fish. Though access to the coast is forbidden due to the nearby Naval Station, visitors can still pay a visit on February 4th, the feast day of Saint Isidore, to explore the area and sample the delicious local wild artichoke. Those who wish to make a day of it can easily combine their trip with a visit to the nearby Vai Palm Grove and Toplou Monastery.
