Agios Nikolaos is a high standerd town,with quaint little shops that were reasonalby priced, if you\'re willing to haggle. All except the game shops that have very expensive games! e.g playstation 2 games are around 60-75 euro.
We suggest taxis if you are planning to go to the town,we walked once it took about 45-50 minuites(we stayed at Candia Park).It tired us all, appart from my son, who was willing to walk back, and we never felt like much shopping then.
Tip - there are lovely restraunts,but they are more expensive if you eat next to the harbour.
We repeatedly visited Taverna Kri Kri. Which is a brilliant restraunt just passed St Nickolas bay, a short distance from the town.It has fantastic food ...
a childs play area,a large screen tv,pool table and a bar.We highly recommend it.Read More
Also take the time to visit Elounda. It has nice restraunts,and well priced shops.There\'s a sunken city and boat trips to Spinalonga,which is the island where people who suffered with lepracy stayed.People say that superstars go to Elounda to stay,in the more expensive hotels.
