Agios Nikolaos (Spoa), Karpathos island

This tiny fishing village in Karpathos island is located in the shade of the northeastern mountains. Agios Nikolaos is known well as the port of Spoa village, which lies only a few kilometers away, on the hills.

Agios Nikolaos can be accessed by a narrow and curvy road from Spoa village, in the northern part of Karpathos. At the end of the road there is a small port of the village with some parking lots. If you would like to discover Agios Nikolaos, park your vehicle here because this small resort has only a few sidewalks from this point.

Usually the village has only a few visitors, because it is situated relatively far from the most popular villages of Karpathos, and the settlement is hidden by the surrounding mountains. Therefore the atmospheres of Agios Nikolaos are very quiet and peaceful, even during the summer months. You can find here some small taverns (especially fishing taverns) and coffee bars, so if you are looking for some meal after you arrived here, you have the chance to eat something delicious and drink some cold refreshments.
