Last minute holidays to Aghios Nikolaos
Book a last minute holiday to Aghios Nikolaos with Thomas Cook and look forward to visiting a modern beach resort that's full of Greek charm and beauty. Sitting in the east of Crete, Aghios Nikolaos has a stunning setting on the island's north coast. As if the shimmering Aegean waters weren't enough, the town's also based around the gorgeous Lake Voulismeni. Go and explore with a stroll around the lake before you head to one of the five beaches for an afternoon in the sun.
If you want to carry on exploring then visit the iconic site of Knossos. Once the centre of the ancient Minoan civilisation and the origin of some famous myths, it's only around an hour's drive from Aghios Nikolaos. Discover the incredible palace, before heading back to town. Pull up a chair for some drinks overlooking the marina and the islet of Agioi Pantes as the sun begins to set.
If you're going away with the kids then there's plenty to keep the little ones entertained, not least the fun-filled Acqua Plus water park, which is about 40 minutes away on the bus or by car. After a long day splashing around you'll need to recapture your energy, so go for dinner at a traditional Greek taverna or try one of the many lovely seafood restaurants.
It's hard to beat a last minute holiday to Aghios Nikolaos with Thomas Cook.
