Aghios Nikolaos



Located on the coast of the island of Crete, 40 mi/64 km east of Heraklion, Agios Nikolaos is a popular tourist hub because of its charming beauty and proximity to a handful of smaller villages and islands. The city, which thankfully for visitors retains its small-town feel, is somehow both sleepy and bustling, contemporary and historic.

Most visitors enjoy seeing Lake Voulismeni, locally referred to as just The Lake, which was once freshwater but now connects to the ocean. A number of small beaches lie to the north and south of the town, the most popular of which, Almiros Beach, has warm, shallow water.
