Agios Nikolaos beach, Zakynthos Island

Situated at a distance of 32 kilometers northwestern to the town of Zakynthos, the beach of Aghios Nicolaos, with fine pebbles, is a small cove in front of the homonymous small settlement, within the broader area of Volimes , at the eastern coast of the island. The entrance of the cove is protected by the small, uninhabited islet of Aghios Nicolaos, an interesting destination for ...good swimmers. The sea is deep and clear, ideal for swimming and the small port is always full of fishing boats, yachts and excursion boats that will get you to Galazies Spilies and Navagio. If you feel like travelling to another island, the ferries departing from the port will get you to Pessada of Cefallonia.

The beach has the same name with the one found at the southeastern coast of the island, close to Vassiliko.

Several hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let are available in the settlement and in the area around. Most of them are open from May to October.

Food is good in the taverns of the village; apart from fresh fish and seafood, you will enjoy a variety of local dishes and Greek delicacies.

Apart from the beach of the settlement, you may swim at Galazies Spilies, as well as at the beaches of Makrys Gialos and Xyngia.

The deep sea should not disappoint children; they may enjoy water games and sports at the Water Park of the settlement.

Apart from the famous Galazies Spilies, where you will go by tourist boats sailing daily, there are several places worth seeing in the area, as the stone built church of Aghios Petros and the small islet of Aghios Nicolaos, just at the entrance of the small port of the settlement; you may also go to the cape of Skinari, the most northern end of the island, at a distance of some 5 kilometers northern to Aghios Nicolaos, where you will see the interesting lighthouse.

If you feel like wandering around it is worth visiting the scenic inland village of Korithi, some 2 kilometers at the North, on the way to Skinari, and the village Mikro Nissi at the South, some 4-5 kilometers far from Aghios Nicolaos, where you will see the Venetian watch tower. Another 4 kilometers at the South there is the site of Xyngia, where you will find a mineral water spring within the sea. The area is not organised at all but it is worth a visit.

For health problems, a local Medical Center is available in Volimes (11 kilometers at the Southwest. In Aghios Nicolaos you will find a Police Station.

Access from the town of Zakynthos (32 kilometers at the Southeast) is easy by rented or private car and motorbikes. Ferryboats departing from the port of the settlement connect the place with Pessada of Cefallonia.
