This pretty lake in the middle of town is the main landmark of Agios Nikolaos and what gives it its pleasant vibe. There are several cafes and restaurants around the edge with nice views.

Visited twice, both times at dusk. We climbed to the top of the steps and the view was beautiful. It was bustling around the lake with restaurants and bars. It is worth the climb if you are able.

In the centre of Agios Nikolaos it is a lovely spot to sit and watch the world go by at one if the restaurants. Take a walk up the steep steps at the back of the lake for wonderful views across the Port.

We were enjoying a peaceful espresso when a seal glided through the clear water right by our table. Couldn't believe it.

It’s really close and would be silly not to walk the odd 300metres to view it. It’s got some really pretty views
