Agios Nikolaos Peloponnes

  • Peloponnese
  • Peloponnese
  • Peloponnese
Ag. Nikolaos is a small fishing village with a cozy harbor, 5 km south of Stoupa on the Mani peninsula and about 30 kilometers south of the district capital Kalamata. There are several taverns where you can watch the hustle and bustle. Ag. Nikolaos belongs to the district region of Messinia. Many residents of Ag. Nikolaos fled to Australia in World War II, but many of them returned. Imposing is the mountain backdrop of the Taygetus mountains in the background. Agios Nikolaos was a centre of fighting during the Greek Civil War. The three towers, built as machine gun emplacements scattered around the village; the largest about 20 metres / 66 feet high dominates the 'skyline' on the main road into the village. In Ag. Nikolaos is a small fish market almost every day. South of the harbor, about 1 km, is a beautiful sandy-pebble beach with plenty of shady trees. There is even a beach shower here.

Agios Nikolaos warmly welcomes those who come in search of genuine Greek village life, but has no intention to turn itself into a cosmopolitical holiday resort. Fishing reains the main economic activity and, after their early morning sortie, the fishermen still sell their catch every day on the simple marble slab beside the small picture-book harbor. Much of this fish finds its way into the kitchens of the taverns that set out their tables in row. In the night during busy months of summer the road along the harbor turns into a pedestrian road.
