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

The village of Georgioupolis with it’s particulary beautiful setting between sea and mountain, is situated between the towns of Rethymno, a 30 minute journey by car and Chania which is a 45 minute drive away. This charming village with its long stretch of sandy beach and river running into the sea, was until recent times a sleepy little fishing village in an out of the way place.Over the past 20 years it has slowly grown into a very popular little holiday resort, with a wide range of tavernas, shops, cafes, boutiques and other tourist amenities. The beautiful countryside surrounding the village is ideal for those keen on walking, while the splendid sandy shore and relaxed sea side atmosphere make it ideal for beach lovers.
There is and excellent bus service in all directions and thus it is possible to go quite far afield, for example to Heraklion (90 min journey) or the south coast perhaps to visit Phaistos or Matala. An outing to Georgioupolis is also worthwhile. Closer to home there are interesting visits to be made to the old quarters of Chania and Rethymno.
