Agios Nikolas is a coastal town on the east of Crete, the largest of the Greek islands. It has been a popular tourist destination since the 1960’s after a string of films that were set here, spread the word of the beauty of the town.
Agios Nikolaos is a small town, but it is packed with tourist attractions and amenities for visitors to enjoy. Perhaps the biggest selling point in Agios Nikolaos is Lake Voulismeni, which is central to the town. There are also many beautiful beaches in the area to spend the day relaxing on, the most famous of them being Kitroplatia beach.
