A tour of Agios Nikolaos leads visitors through charming neighborhoods with white washed houses, squares with taverns, steep pedestrian streets, and sea as a backdrop, ideal for exploration on foot.
On the 16th (Mon), enjoy the sand and surf at Stalis Beach, then contemplate the long history of Fortress Spinalonga, and then explore the activities along Lake Voulismeni. Here are some ideas for day two: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour and then kick back and relax at Voulisma Beach.

Adana, Turkey to Agios Nikolaos is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Adana to Agios Nikolaos due to the time zone difference.
