PORT OF AGIOS NIKOLAOS
The history of Agios Nikolaos is marked by its harbor in the Ammoudi area, which is still the commercial port of the town.
ELOUNDA & PLAKA VILLAGE
The village of Elounda lies about 12 kms north of Agios Nikolaos, in a long bay formed by the Peninsula of Kolokitha. This picturesque fishing village attracts a lot of tourists in its central square that overlooks the quaint Gulf of Mirabello. There are several small shingle or sandy beaches in the area, ideal for snorkeling.
A fishing boat trip in the sparkling blue waters of the bay will take you to the isle of Spinalonga with its Venetian fortress and the haunting deserted buildings of Europe’s last leper colony.
