The beach resort of St Nicholas in the south of Zakynthos is known by a number of names - Agios Nikolaos in Greek, or St Nicholas and St Niks in English. This is perhaps the most popular beach on the island with tourists and Greeks alike.
St Niks is not a typical holiday resort – it is more akin to a small village with a really relaxed holiday atmosphere. There are a few tavernas in the heart of St Niks village as well as a mini-market and car hire firm. There are a number of accommodation options in St Niks – a hotel, a number of apartments and stand along villas. The village is just a few minutes from the beautiful beach.
St Nicholas Beach in the South of Zante is a beautiful sandy bay with a picturesque white Greek Orthodox Church sitting up on the cliff overlooking the bay. You really won’t find a more charming spot than this for a peaceful Greek Island Beach holiday.
The village resort of St Nicholas in Vasilikos is around 20 kilometres from Zante Town and thanks to the rather remote location, it retains a real Greek charm and offers peace and tranquillity. During the day at St Niks you have beautiful beaches, beach clubs, and water sports on offer, and in the evening you can dine at local tavernas and sleep early enjoying the sound of the sea!
St Niks Beach is a rather small, golden sand bay, with jagged rocks framing the beach on each side. Like most of the Vasilikos region, the beach here is adorned with palm umbrellas where you can shelter from the sun during your day at the beach. These natural umbrellas really add to the ambience at the beach.
There is plenty to do on St Nicholas Beach with activities for everyone. There is a superb range of water sports at St. Niks watersports hut – so you can fly through the skies on a paraglider or take a trip around the bay on a jet ski. There is even a Scuba Diving School at St Niks so you can try a dive around the reef at the edge of the beach. There are also sporting facilities on the beach – with a beach volleyball court up at Ammos Beach Club and a special area on the beach for a fun game of rackets.
While you are at St Nicholas be sure to visit the Ammos Beach Club, for a delicious meal or fantastic refreshments. We think Ammos offers one of the best iced coffees in Zakynthos! With a divine ambience, wonderful thatched roof and incredible hand carved wooden furnishings, this is considered to be one of the top beach clubs in Europe.
If you are staying elsewhere, there is a courtesy bus which offers free transportation from most of the main tourist resorts out to St Niks beach in Vasilikos. So even if you don’t rent a car during your holiday in Zante, you will be able to get out to this lovely beach for a day of pure Greek Island bliss!
