There are several Agios Nikolaos (Saint Nicholas) churches on Zakynthos, this one is found on the south east corner of the island just above St Nicholas Beach
. It’s around 15km from the islands capital Zakynthos Town
and that’s about a 20 minute drive.
It’s a delightful little whitewashed building with red doors and gates. Unfortunately you can’t get in to the church itself but it’s still a nice place to visit as the area offers spectacular views of the Ionian sea and the beach below.
There’s not a great deal to see or do at the church itself but well worth taking a stroll up the hill side with your camera to build up an appetite for your delicious Greek lunch at one of the nearby tavernas or just to get some nice holiday snaps to make your Facebook friends jealous.
There’s room for a couple of cars inside the gates but this isn’t always open so if that’s the case then you can park at the rear of the beach and walk from there.
