    Agios Nikolaos stands on the shores of the beautiful Mirabello Bay, a coastal town on the eastern coast of the Greek island of Crete. It sits partly on the ruins of the ancient city of Lato pros Kamara. It has three faces to the sea – the Lake and port, Kitroplatia Beach, and the Marina. It seems less Cretan in character than the island’s other main centres, partly because of its resort style and its generally modern architecture, but there’s a strong local character to Agios Nikolaos that makes it a charming and friendly place.
