Agios Nikolaos is a small bay at the north est end of Zakynthos. The small fishing village is the start point for popular boat trips to the Blue Caves of Volimes, towards the north tip of the islands where you can snorkel amongst the limestone caves and arches.
These trips usually head on to Shipwreck Bay, also known as Navagio Beach. Here the rusty wreck of coaster sits in the middle of the beach, having been driven ashore in 1980.
Agios Nikolaos is also the departure point for ferries to Kefalonia. Take care when these arrive and depart as they can create quite a large wash.
The village will provide all the basic needs for your yacht charter or flotilla holiday – there are several tavernas, and basic provisions are available.
