Agios Nikolaos is on the north eastern coast of Zakynthos and this charming town owes its name to the little chapel that stands on the left side of the beach. It is one of the liveliest and fun filled beaches in the area, wide with many water sports activities and tourist facilities. The tiny little harbour is the gateway to the amazing sites of Shipwreck Bay and the Blue Caves which you can go and see on organised boat trips and are some of the most famed sites in Greece. Agios Nikolaos has a small selection of cafes and tavernas that line the seafront as well as some gorgeous beaches and coves.

Things to do in Agios Nikolaos

The harbour is a bustling area where all the local boat trips set sail from. Visit Keri Caves where the white cliffs create a fantastic backdrop along with the crystal clear waters. The Blue Caves and Shipwreck beach are all nearby so make some time to visit during your Greek villa holiday. Perhaps visit a local winery, take a tour and sample some of the different varieties of wine on offer, where you could always take a bottle of your favourite back to your private Agios Nikolaos villa. At night, Agios Nikolaos is more peaceful with a small selection of tavernas and bars for you, your family, and your friends to enjoy.
