A PICTURESQUE PORT

A small town with a lot to offer

Aghios Nikolaos

Prestige Holidays offers the beautiful St Nicolas Bay Resort in Aghios Nikolaos, just 2 km from the pretty port.  This hotel has everything you need for a perfect holiday, an excellent choice of accommodation including villas, restaurants, beach, pools and a beautiful spa.

Walking

Aghios Nikolaos is a great place to enjoy walking. Walk along the seafront, to the picturesque marina to admire all the yachts or to the lake, connected to the sea by a small inlet – there are many different sides to explore in Aghios Nikolaos.

Days out

Activities for visitors are many and varied, but the coastline and the wide range of water-sports offered by most hotels will be popular. Why not pop into the archaeological museum if you have some spare time? A day trip on a boat to Elounda and the Island of Spinalonga are well worth doing – the island has a fascinating history and Elounda is quite different from Aghios Nikolaos. 

If you take the road into Elounda from Agios Nikolaos, approximately 12 km in length and follow the shore as it climbs to the top of a small mountain. The view from the top is incredible; on a clear day you can see the whole of Mirabello Bay and all the way to the eastern tip of Crete.

Climate

You’re more or less guaranteed good weather in Crete in the summer, with temperatures usually in the 30’s, and with about 12 hours of sunshine a day. Spring and early autumn are obviously cooler but still with plenty of sunshine, with temperatures in the mid 20’s. A perfect time to explore the island either on foot or by car.
