If you are looking for a beautiful beach in a vibrant town setting, where you can walk out of your hotel or apartment in the city center and go for a morning swim, or dine looking out over a beach at sunset, Agios Nikolaos is just the spot.
The most accessible beach is Kitroplateia Beach. The view from this beach, across Mirabello Bay to the soaring mountains on the opposite shore is unbelievable. Palapas and beach chairs look out over turquoise and stunning blue water, and behind are numerous restaurants. This beach is within easy walking distance of Agios Nikolaos' lovely port and lake areas.
Walkable but farther out from the action of the city center is Almyros Beach. This is actually a much nicer beach, with soft golden sand and the same outstanding views across the bay. However, it is more removed from the town and has only limited facilities where you can buy snacks. It's quieter but still generally packed on nice days. Many people drive the five minutes to the beach, rather than walk.
A tiny pebble beach can also be found near the statue of Europa. Although it's small and has no real facilities or beach chairs and umbrellas, it's very protected and has a shower. People come here with small children.
The stunning Voulisma Beach listed above is only about a 15-minute drive from Agios Nikolaos, and is a great place to spend a day at the beach.
