Aegina beach
Agios Nikitas beach
Lefakada island
  • Beach berm:
    Shingle, Large Pebbles
  • Seafloor:
    Shingle, Small Pebbles
  • Water rating: 2/6 about
  • Access:
    Poor = Accessible by car, poor road, plus a long walk.

    If you live or stay in a hotel in Agios Nikitas this beach is within walking distance, and you probably park at your hotel's parking lot. If you on the other hand drive there by car, hoping to spend the day at the beach, parking is only available at the main road which tends to get very crowded in the summer. The walk to the beach takes you through the town of Ag. Nikitas.
  • Amenities:
    Restaurant at the beach
    Bar at the beach
    Town within walking distance
    Hotel on the beach
  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Campers explicitly forbidden and there is no space to get near the beach in an RV.
  • Snorkeling:
    It looks promising but I did not dive
  • Notes:

    This is the little beach right at the edge of Agios Nikitas. It is flanked by restaurants, hotels, and bars, and also serves as the port of the town with few fishing boats and water taxis sailing around.

    A better option would be to take the water taxi for a five minute ride to Mylos beach which is one of the best. You can also walk to Mylos beach, but the path through the cliffs is steep and dangerous. Pefkoulia beach is also nearby near the road before you reach Agios Nikitas, and Kathisma beach is a couple of kilometers farther south.

RATING SCALE

3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming
