Discover the city of Agios Nikolaos. The church of Agios Nikolaos has given the multi-faceted town its current name. The famously deep "lake" is a natural congregating point for waterfront cafes and eating places. Shops cover a range of styles, interesting items can be found on sale in the town center. Cafes cater to tastes from regular nightlife to a literary bent.
Nearby attractions include Kritsa village and Katharos plateau - and the wonderfully scenic "corniche" coastal route to Sitia. Good beaches within the town and on the east coast.
Chrissi or Gaidouronisi is called the small island in the south part of Crete. This is the island with the famous white-pink sandy beach. Take the boat from Ierapetra 35km from Agios Nikolaos, for a daily cruise to this small paradise.
Enjoy a full-day excursion at the palm forest of Vai on the eastern side of Crete. This is the only palm forest in Europe and it ends up to a nice sandy beach, one of the best on the island. Please note that the beach is full of sunbeds and umbrellas and also full of tourists (early morning, late afternoon, spring, or end of Summer is highly suggested).
On the way back don't miss visiting the Toplou Monastery to admire the view. This is one of the most well-organized monasteries, that produces olive oil and also excellent quality wine.
Take the boat from Elounda or Plaka for a mini cruise to Spinalonga island, an ex lepra colony. Spinalonga became even more famous because of the book " The Island". If you decide to visit the island, we suggest you come here early in the morning or late in the afternoon because of the high temperate during the day.
If you like hiking we would propose Richtis Gorge which is one of the most beautiful trails in Crete; The entrance of the gorge is at Exo Mouliana village, which is located on the Agios Nikolaos - Sitia national road near Sitia. The gorge ends at a secluded beach. It looks like a jungle, with path, old bridges, ruins, a waterfall, and the beach at the end. the hiking takes about 3 hours. If you decide to pass the gorge, arrange a taxi to pick you up from the beach.
If you think of a full-day excursion, it worths visiting Sitia and then to go for swimming to the spectacular Vai beach, a beach with fine sand, pebble, crystal clean water, excellent for snorkeling. At this sandy beach, you will not feel alone, it is very crowded in the summer. The area is famous because of the palm forest which is unique on the island and the biggest in Europe. On the way back, stop to the monastery of Toplou, just to admire the view
