Romance is usually connected with the red color of passion... but that's not the case in Crete. The blue of the sky and the sea and the golden yellow of the sun, are the colors that will set your love on fire. Agios Nikolaos, a small Cretan village located on the eastern part of Heraklion, is currently one of the top towns in Crete to spend romantic holidays by the beach.
You might have never heard of Agios Nikolaos before, but the town is very popular in Greece, even to people who have never visited Crete. The town was partly built atop the remains of old Cretan houses, so the traditional feeling is prominent everywhere . The shopping and dining opportunities are excellent, however the town is mainly reputed for its stunning beaches!
What will further upgrade your romantic adventure in Agios Nikolaos though is a luxurious and romantic hotel that has won the heart of every traveler who has visited it. That could be none other than St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas, located just 5 minutes driving from Agios Nikolaos' center.
