Agios Isidoros beach

Beach description

Situated at the northeasternmost end of Crete, Agios Isidoros lies 32km east of Sitia and 99km east of Agios Nikolaos. It’s positioned at the northernmost point of Cape Sidero, within the territory of Kyriamadi’s Military Naval Station. The area is known for its unique, rugged beauty, shaped by the influence of salt and wind.

Agios Isidoros’ hidden beach lies beneath the church and lighthouse of Saint Isidore, the namesake of Cape Sidero. The church was constructed near the ruins of a 14th-century temple, which is believed to have once been a convent. Underwater ruins of a 4th-century temple have also been discovered. The beach is small and dotted with rocks, forming a semicircular cove enclosed by rocky outcrops that create a slender strip of sea. It’s a perfect spot for solitude and fishing, as the surrounding waters are abundant with fish.

Due to its status as a naval base, access from the coast is restricted. Visitors can only access Saint Isidore on its feast day, February 4th. On this day, hundreds of people visit not just for religious reasons but also to collect the tasty local wild artichoke. You can also make a day trip to the Vai palm grove and Toplou Monastery during your visit.
