Rugged mountain backdrop and stunning marina

One of the main features of Aghios Nikolaos is the breathtaking Lake Voulismani, said to be bottomless, and linked to the sea by a short channel. The colourful fishing boats bob in the sunshine and cafes and tavernas circle the lake, a wonderful relaxing way to sit and people watch as the world goes by. The children will be amused for hours in the play area close by.

Aghios Nikolaos holidays come to life at night with bars and clubs around the lake and marina being the favourite place to be, live music and dance festivals entertain the whole family, but if it's a party you want then nearby Malia is the place for you. Water sports are available from the many blue flag beaches in the area with water skiing, windsurfing and sailing being most popular. Boat trips will take you along the coast to discover many small hidden beaches and coves, some inaccessible by land.
