Agios Nikolaos is situated on the north-east of Crete and is one of the longest established resorts on the island. Originally a typically Greek fishing village, it started welcoming tourists in the 1960’s when developers realised the potential for this seaside resort. Agios Nikolaos or Ag Nik as it affectionately known was once the party capital of Crete, and whilst it does still have some lively nightlife it is gradually transforming itself into a cosmopolitan destination which is good choice for couples and families too.
Tourists enjoying their annual holidays in Agios Nikolaos are always drawn to the fabulous Blue Flag Award beaches with the lovely calm sea gently lapping the shores. Water sports are available for the more sporty tourists and there are plenty of sun beds to go around. The water offers a great place to cool off from the heat of the day. In the immediate area there are many coves, some sand and some pebble and are a quieter spot to enjoy a swim or relax in the sun.
Nightlife in Agios Nikolaos has something for everyone. With a wide choice of lively bars on the promenade playing the latest tunes or karaoke for would be singers are perfect for night owls that like to stay out until the early hours. Families and couples love the quieter traditional bars which allow for an evening of chat or entertainment from local singers and dancers.
