This former fishing village in Mirabello Bay may have little in the way of big-scale attractions, but Aghios Nikolaos still has plenty to please. The golden beaches are a highlight of this coastal resort, whether you’re sunbathing or trying a new watersport on EOT Beach. Picturesque Lake Voulismeni, a true jewel of Crete, is at the heart of this resort, along with a whole host of bars and tavernas to visit. The marina in Aghios Nikolaos is also a busy spot with locals and tourists alike – head over there and hunt for a bargain.

Nearby Elounda is a celebrity hotspot, attracting a range of stars with its' deluxe hotel complexes, chic spa's, and stunning views over Mirabella Bay and Spinalonga - made famous through Victoria Hislop's book "The Island". Pop over for a day of pampering or incorporate Elounda into a trip to the famous islet.

For more urban attractions, Heraklion is only a taxi-ride away, so why not venture out and explore the Palace of Knossos, or take the kids on a fun day out at Watercity? Aghios Nikolaos is a great base to explore all the best Crete has to offer.



You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in Aghios Nikolaos, and almost all of them are Blue Flag-awarded. Picturesque Almyros Beach is one of the most popular in Crete – its golden sand and clear blue waters will appeal to all kinds of beach-lovers on holiday in Crete – while families and thrill-seekers alike will love the watersports on offer down at EOT Beach. The small sand-and-shingle Kitroplatia Beach is in the heart of Aghios Nikolaos, so there’s plenty of shops, bars and more nearby. You’ll find Ammos Beach close by to the marina, and a little further out from the resort, you’ll find the scenic shores of Havania on the way to Elounda.
