Small town meets high style

Known for having “three faces to the sea”, this port on Crete’s east coast seamlessly blends the charm of a small fishing village with the glamor of a chic resort town. With a diverse range of dining, shopping, and nightlife options, you can find your own personal paradise in Agios Nikolaos.

At the center of town sits Lake Voulismeni, the deep waters of which have inspired many a local folk tale. Here you’ll find residents and visitors chatting over coffee, sipping ouzo at authentic tarvernas, or savoring lunch at a fine dining restaurant. For a taste of the beach life, you wont have to travel far. Several beaches are just a short walk from the town center and they are popular hangouts for fashionable young Greeks.

Just outside of town, history buffs can explore the archaeological site of Gournia, one of the best examples of ancient Minoan life on Crete. For golf lovers, two courses are just a short drive from port. Those who want to shop will find everything from carved olive wood artifacts and sea sponges at traditional markets, to the latest styles at fashionable boutiques.

This town of just 27,000 offers a welcome respite from some of the busier ports in the Mediterranean. Whether by the beach, lakeside, or in the heart of town, this is the perfect place to get on island time and watch the world go by.
