The Venetian Harbour town of Aghios Nikoloas lies to the east on the Greek island of Crete and is situated approximately 65 kilometres east of the city of Heraklion. The scenic harbour town has not only been built along the coastline and around the harbour but also around its very own lake, Lake Voulismeni. The resort of Aghios Nikolaos is a well developed tourist resort, not only is the resort full of history with plenty of sights to see but it is also well known amongst travellers for it’s excellent beaches as well as it’s excellent nightlife, with plenty of tavernas to eat in and an assortment of bars to spend an evening in, however if you are looking to party hard then take a trip to the nearby resort of Malia. Aghios Nikolaos is the perfect choice for all holidaymakers, whether you’re here to relax on the pristine beaches and bathe in the blue waters or simply to enjoy a little sightseeing this resort offers something for everyone.

Perfect Location

Ag Nik is a lovely place, not too busy when we visited in May 2018, beautiful scenery. The place is mainly quiet but lively if you want it. We have visited 4 times now and never get fed up of it.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Beautiful beaches

Vibrant and Beautiful

A great resort for people of all ages - it has it all, from great restaurants, bars to stunning views, walks and excursions. Have seen quite a bit of Crete now and this is by far the best place to stay or stay like we did in a luxury hotel on the outskirts! Taxis are cheap enough around the resort and buses are comforable and very reasonable priced, although don't seem to run that regularly. This resort is so beautiful, with great views and photo opportunities and you will never get bored.

Fabulous as always!

To get to Ag Nik the transfer bus went through the edge of some of the resorts designed for groups of young ones with fish and chip bars and fast food places still serving at 5.30am. Not so in Ag Nik...great traditional as well as upmarket trendy restaurants and bars spread over three bays, a beautiful walk. The two main shopping streets have a good variety of products to suit all tastes and pockets! There are two fairly small sandy beaches quite near the town centre and the restaurant on the westerly one is great for a relaxing lunch. The people too are friendly and welcoming.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Everything and it is a place that I look forward to visiting again and again.

Lovely place for couples

Beautiful town with just the right amount of quiet and noise, great walks but lots of steps and hills, our hotel the Hermes was in walking distance to all parts, ie the lake the harbour and the mariner. lots of beaches to walk too not much sand but very clean and welcoming. you wont find any places selling english breakfasts etc and thank god for that, Ag Nik has held on tight and remains a real Greek town, excepting of tourists...

The best thing about my stay was ...

the sea and the views and choice of either the Harbour, the lake or the mariner

small port ,selection of beaches,good selection of bars and shops

although the resort has a small harbour with small cruise liners visiting it retains its unique small Greek village feel. Good selection of bars, resuraunts and shops many located around the small lake fed by the sea. All bars are lively but not loud. All resedents we met in shops or bars/ restraunts made us very welcome and were very friendly. There are many small walks around the lake or around the headland with a selction of beaches ranging from a large sandy beach to smaller rock and sand beaches. Also some areas have man made rocky beaches. Totally enjoted our stay and will return in the future.

Agios Nikolaos - Crete

Romantic fishing village which first featured in a 1960's Walt Disney movie called "The Moon Spinners" has now become a vibrant town, yet without losing its Greekness. Just the right distance from the airport ( a little over an hours drive!) to attract the more discerning traveller and not for those looking for gravy on their Brussels sprouts! Beautiful lake connected to the picturesque harbour via a tiny canal spanned by "The Bridge" - a great meeting point. Plenty of friendly multi-lingual locals, scenery, shops and tavernas.

Alexandros Roof-top Bar (and the Hermes Hotel)

Very cosmopolitan

A very lively, cosmopolitan town with fantastic bars, tavernas and shops. The harbour and lake area is great for nights out, catering for quiet, relaxing evenings or lively, trendy all night partying such as Caramellos and Alexandros. If you like all kinds of rock music you must go to Yanni's Rock Bar in the harbour (my favourite). There's a brilliant range of shops... jewellery, clothes, gifts etc. You just don't get bored here!

The best thing about my stay was ...

The people are very helpful and friendly

A pretty holiday resort town.

Agios Nikolaos is a tourist town, with a really pretty lake and harbour area, and many many souvenir shops, restaurants and bars. It does not feel like a real town, it feels like everything is geared for holiday makers. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but something to bear in mind if you are looking to experience authentic Cretan culture. We had a great relaxing family holiday here and I would happily come back, but we did feel that we were pursued a bit too vigorously by restaurant staff. The pound is very weak against the Euro at the moment, so eating out was expensive.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Great weather and picturesque lake and harbour.

A lively town

Agios is perhaps not the best place to go if you want golden beaches, however, it is a pretty town and is very lively at night, attracting a young,upwardly mobile crowd. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, and one or two good municipal beaches nearby if thats your thing. Boat trips along the coast are popular, and public transport is plentiful and reasonably cheap.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The Lagoon in the centre of town.

Just at the right level for what we required a decent choice of resturants and bars without being in your face all clustered around a nice harbour and lake area.

Wonderful views and quite hilly so great to run

Agios Nikolaos has not got any really nice beaches. It is very rocky, hilly and the beaches near by are very stoney and rocky. The views were beautiful but the beach itself wasn't very nice or clean. The town has a lovely harbour view but the shopping is very expensive. There are some lovely restaurants and cafe's but we found it very expensive. To eat a starter and giros and chips with a couple of glasses of wine cost 60 euros which is just ridiculous. The main shops were very expensive and the cheap markets where holiday makers like to buy tea towels and fridge magnets were very over priced. I am not surprised this country is not in a good state of finance, at these prices they cannot make any money as they cannot sell a lot.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The views of the mountains.
