    From Agios Nikolaos, drive past the “Istron villas” exit and then see the small rocky road that goes down. You might have to do a u turn later as it’s not convenient and even dangerous to cross the road and drive there.
    Drive 20meters on this road and park where it’s possible : you’ll see a rocky road going toward the small island. Walk there for 20mn, you’ll arrive to stairs going down on a nice concrete/rocky platform where we were the only one for the full afternoon. Great place for snorkeling, bathing nude, etc..One of the best hidden secret of the Lassithi coast !
