When we choose Agios Nikolaos as a base to explore Mani, we had high expectation of driving a lot and get to the bottom of this Peloponnese finger. Reality is that we arrived tired and the idea of driving more along those tiny curvy roads just did not appealed to us much.
BUT we have been so pleased with this small village and the really relaxed athmosphere that we have been very happy just to hang around and enjoy it.
The village is close to the more famous settling of Kardamyli and Stoupa but it is way less crowded.
The center, if you can call center a 100 meter stretch of road, evolve around the small harbour where the local fishermen keep their boat and you can look at them going out and in every day. They aslo have a marble counter where in the morning, around 9, you can check out their daily catch and buy it.
There are several taverna, caffees and a bakery, all of them with nice outdoor covered space to enjoy your meal, a beer or whatever and just watch the sea and the people go by.
In the center there is no proper beach, you have to drive a few minutes to reach beaches, but there is a platform with stairs to dive in.
During the day the village is sleepy and almost deserted but during the night the taverna along the harbour pull out their tables and chair and everybody show up after a full day of sunbathing, swimming or exploring and sit outside tasting great food. There are a few tavernas the best one I will review on the restaurants section here.
- Pros:Relaxing, beautiful and peaceful
- Cons:Can be tricky to get around without a car
