Agios Nikolaos is a charming coastal gem and is the capital of Lasithi prefecture. Perched on the eastern part of the island, Agios Nikolaos Town offers breathtaking views of the cerulean sea and the majestic Mirabello Bay. 

The town itself is a blend of traditional Cretan architecture and modern amenities, featuring narrow winding streets, whitewashed buildings adorned with colorful flowers, and a bustling harbor filled with fishing boats and luxury yachts.

There is much to explore in Agios Nikolaos, such as wandering along the promenade lined with quaint cafes, tavernas, and boutique shops and explore Voulismeni Lake, a former freshwater lake linked to the sea, or relax on the idyllic sandy beaches nearby.
