Agios Nikolaos

4.1
Beaches · Bodies of Water · Nightlife
A tour of Agios Nikolaos leads visitors through charming neighborhoods with white washed houses, squares with taverns, steep pedestrian streets, and sea as a backdrop, ideal for exploration on foot. The serene little town sits partially upon the ruins of the ancient Dorian city, serving as a hub to a dozen small fishing villages and farms. Agios Nikolaos tourism thrives mostly thanks to sandy beaches, small-town feel, and the mixture of Minoan, Byzantine, and Venetian influences on the town's architecture visible in archeological remains, Neoclassical buildings, and Byzantine churches. A small lagoon lake in the center of the town famous for its deep waters is its biggest attraction, but many Agios Nikolaos vacations include a ferry ride to an old Venetian fortress on the island of Spinalonga. Put Agios Nikolaos at the heart of your travel plans by using our Greece trip planner.
