Agios Nikolaos. 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 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.',
