  • Agios Nikolaos
    First to Review

    If you have a little extra money get on a ship and head over to the island of Crete. In particular head to Agios Nikolaos (northeastern side of the island). It is easily accessible from Heraklion along a coast road. I went by rented scooter and it took about an hour.

    Agios Nikolaos will blow you away with its beauty. It is like Venice with mountains. It has great architecture and is very clean. There are lots of great restaurants,cafes as well as beautiful beaches.
    If you like nature you can go hiking up in the hills around the city and the check out some of the neighboring villages which have a lot of history. If you go you will not be disappointed!

Description

Agios Nikolaos is probably best known as a tourist town that serves as a hub to the twenty or so small villages and farms that make up that part of Lassithi. Tourist attractions include the small lagoon Lake Voulismeni, small beaches in the town, the tiny island Agioi Pantes, the archaeological museum, the local flora exhibition “Iris” and numerous fairs. Tourism is mainly West European with Greek tourism concentrating in mid August. The lagoon features a small park with a trail, traditional fishing boats, ducks, pigeons, an amphitheatre and many cafès.
