If you like the sound of sinking your toes into the soft sand on a caramel-coloured beach, this one’s for you. You’ll have three hours to spend in Agios Nikolaos. This place is known for having some of the best Blue Flag beaches in Zante, and it’s easy to see why. You’ll be visiting St Nicholas beach, where the water is a striking shade of blue, and the waves are gentle. There’s a reef just off the edge of the beach, where you can often spot starfish and seahorses, so it’s great for snorkelling. You can also try your hand at a whole host of watersports, including jet-skis and pedalos, or scuba diving and banana boat rides. And the promenade is scattered with a bunch of great restaurants and snack bars, so there’s plenty of choice if you fancy a bite to eat.
