There are fine mountain and sea views along the 11km road north from Agios Nikolaos to Elounda. It centres on a handsome fishing harbour, where you can board a boat to Spinalonga Island, an erstwhile leper colony. There is a refreshing down-to-earth feel to the town centre, which also has some pleasant waterfront bars and eateries. The beach, a short walk north of the harbour, is adequate, if nothing special, and can get crowded.
