Agios Nikolaos The Essential
Interesting
The white houses of Agios Nikolaos cover the hillsides overlooking the Gulf of Mirabella, wrapped above a sheltered bay and a deep lake. Popular on account of its superb location, the town has become one of the hotspots of Cretan nightlife, drawing comparisons with St Tropez. Very busy in summer, Agios Nikolaos calms down again in low season and rediscovers its Mediterranean charm. It's the ideal place to enjoy what the region has to offer.
