Built around the famous ‘bottomless' lake of Agios Nikolaos, this destination continues to fascinate visitors.

The remains of the ancient city of Lato, the Church of Agios Nikolaos, and the fort on Spinalonga isle are the other must-see attractions in Agios Nikolaos. If lounging on the beach is more your thing, then you'll find a number of small beaches too.
