What Else

WHAT ELSE

From Micro Nisi and Aghios Nicolas, you can rent a boat to explore little coves & beaches, water ski, snorkel in azure clear water. For young children wishing to 'bucket & spade' Alikes & Alikanas (20 min away) offer long sandy beaches, all the usual beach attractions, (wind surfers, pedalos, etc) and endless tavernas leading right down to the sea. There are several scuba diving centres on the island.

Enjoy the marine life with a glass bottomed boat or visit the famous Shipwreck Bay from the sea; alternatively, enjoy this spectacular sight from a cliff top viewing platform.

Nearby is the hill town of Volimes, centre for the island's weaving industry where charming local pottery, and other quality souvenirs can be bought at very reasonable prices. Beware if in Volimes for Greek Easter, the locals love to set off fire crackers as they wander in and out of the churches!

The Fish Festival is a great celebration at the end of August with the islanders coming to Aghios Nicolas where they eat and dance till the early hours. Although plate throwing has now been banned in Greece, every week the L'Astoria Restaurant, which is right on the beach of Aghios Nicolas, has its 'Greek Evening' with local dancers and hundreds of white paper napkins are thrown instead of plates - this is a great event for young children!

Sophia's Art Cafe is another quirky meeting place for young and old. The owner has filled it with her own works of art which include life size papier mache statues, exotic jewelry, and highly original paintings most of which are for sale. They also serve a multitude of hot chocolate & tea varieties as well as cocktails and some surprisingly delicious Greek wines.
