About the location
Aghios Nikolaos has been dubbed Crete's St Tropez, thanks to its chic cafés, elegant boutiques and stylish bars. The town - one of the island's prettiest - is built around an inner lagoon (Lake Voulismeni) on the lovely Bay of Mirabello and is overlooked by the eastern mountains. By day, the harbour is dotted with brightly painted fishing boats; by night, the water reflects the lights from the cluster of tavernas and restaurants. The narrow streets that wind their way through the town are edged with bars and shops, as well as a fair few churches. There are a couple of shingle beaches in Aghios Nikolaos - if you're after a sandy stretch, head a couple of kilometres down the road to Almiros, a historic harbour town named after its charming Byzantine chapel.
