St Nicholas Port Beach: The beach 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 the tourists and Greeks alike.
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.
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.
Central in the charming village of St Nicholas in Vasilikos is the very popular Hotel Vasilikos Beach. This hotel provides an excellent base with lovely facilities and a great swimming pool - ideal accommodation in Zakynthos for your holiday in Zante.
