What to do in Nikiana?
In the resort there are several restaurants, cafés and bars, some of which located on the coast and so perfect for a nice sit-down listening to the murmuring of sea waves and watching the bustle in the port. There is nothing more enjoyable than to taste seafood specialities at the sunset over a glass of good wine. In the little shops, you can buy basic foodstuffs and articles of daily use. Yet if you get a hankering for something more, set off to the island capital located a little less than 10 km away. The nightlife in Nikiana is not really the liveliest, for that you would need to the to the capital as well. Nonetheless, you can still find there bustling places, including some bars and tavernas where Greek dancing and music nights take place.
The beautiful hilly landscape of the region is a hikers’ paradise. From the raised palces, you will have a unique view on the picturesque island landscape.
