Lying east of the capital Heraklion is Agios Nikolaos, a picturesque coastal town on the idyllic Greek island of Crete. It's encompassed by picturesque hilly terrain and overlooks the shores of the curving Mirabello Bay. With soft sandy beaches, quality local tavernas and a welcoming atmosphere it's a perfect place for a couple or family-friendly holiday.
In the centre of Agios Nikolaos, you can explore the marina or see the deep lake, connected to the sea by a narrow inlet. Both are surrounded and overlooked by quaint cafes, restaurants and local tavernas where you can pick up local cuisine, including fresh sea food.
Wander around the shops with original items from woven fabrics to China and local delicacies on offer. To immerse yourself in the culture, you can head to one of the ancient churches, scattered within the streets, including the small church which lends its name to the town.
Soft sandy beaches, including Kitroplatia and Havania, surround the town, and one of the region's most popular spots is Palm Beach, on the east coast. All boast clear, calm waters, perfect for swimming and families with smaller children. Behind Agios Nikolaos, the rural villages of the Lasithi Plateau add another facet to Eastern Crete's fascination.
For day trips, you can drive to the island's capital Heraklion. The vibrant port city is best known for the Palace of Knossos. The archaeological site dates back thousands of years to the Minoan civilisation. A drive around Heraklion will also bring you to sleepy traditional villages, Medieval castles, Byzantine monasteries and secluded coves.
