Agios Nikolaos beach is the main beach of Arkasa village, which offers soft golden sand, usually big waves, and a slightly organized area.

The beach is located on the southern side of Arkasa, only one kilometer from the town. The road from Arkasa runs directly to the coast, which makes the access of Agios Nikolaos beach quite easy. At the end of the road there is a small parking lot and a few tamarisk trees, that offer some shade to the visitors of the beach.
