Agios Nikolaos in Crete

Hotels and apartments

Charming little town, which for many years has attracted ever greater numbers of visitors, is situated right in the heart of the glorious Bay of Mirabello with its breath taking vistas, azure blue seas and very pleasant climate. Agios Nikolaos, hotelsAgios Nikolaos sits on the ancient site of the town of Lato-Etera. Both towns were administrative centres and reached their pinnacle in the 3rd Century A.D. Today, Agios Nikolaos is an important centre for Administration, for the Arts and for Transport Service, and has become one of the most advanced regions for these in Crete, and in Greece.

This is the place, where tourism first began in Crete and   it gradually became a much favored area, thanks to very traditional big open hearted welcome given to visitors, the wonderful coastline, the clean beaches, nine of which in the region as a whole have now been awarded the European Blue Flag plus of course the very rich variety of ancient sights to visit. Agios Nikolaos has much to offer both young and old. It is ideal for walkers, for those who seek history and culture, and there is a wide selection of nightlife to suit every taste. Every  summer the town council arranges a programme of cultural events. It is also an ideal centre for all kinds of watersports, and various hotels and sports centres have swimming pools, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts.

In the centre of the town is the picturesque harbour, with the curious little round lake of Voulismeni, and the cafes around provide a popular meeting point for locals and visitors alike. To add to the attractions, one of the most beautiful yacht marinas in the Aegean was built here in 1994.Always appealing too are the numerous small shops to browse through in the little

The town is furthermore an ideal springboard for day trips to explore other regions of the eastern and central island. For example a trip to the old mountain village of Kritza, to the Lassithi plain, to Malia or intriguing Spinalonga, the island with mellow stone venetian buildings, which in times past was used as a leper colony. Agios Nikolaos can be reached via a direct ferry link with Piraeus harbour, Athens, and for air travel, the airport of Heraklion is only about 45 minutes drive away.

Tip of the day

Top beaches.  Crete, Greece
Kouremenos near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
A real magnet for windsurfers from all over the world, who find ideal wind-wave combinations.
Rihti - Exo Mouliana near Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
Two hours walk through the Rihtis gorge, which is a beautiful path that culminates with Rihtis waterfall near Rihtis beach, will take you to one of the most secluded beaches of the island.
Istron or Kalo Chorio (North-Estern Crete)
A place filled with legends and traditions – but you will find quality tourism services too.
Maridati South of Vai beach (North-Eastern Crete)
Two big rocks are the landmarks of this beach that remains unknown to the masses.
Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
A village filled with fish taverns with a view of the Pseira Island, and lots of archaeological findings.
Kato Zakros (Estern Crete)
If you follow the two hours long footpath through the “gorge of the dead” you will be rewarded with the view of a magnificent beach but also of the Minoan Palace of Zakros destroyed on 1450 B.C. possibly by a Thira (Santorini) volcano explosion.
Hiona near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
Shallow waters for the kids and young swimmers, and a well known - all over the island - local fish soup.

We are not talking about the district with the same name at Ierapetra, here we find ourselves 7 kms east of Sitia in an area where the biggest cemetery of Minoan Crete was discovered.
