Agios Nikolaos

South of Stoupa on the coast is the picturesque fishing village of Agios Nikolaos (still often called by its older Slavic name, Selinitsa). There are three exits off the main road to the coastal road that links Selenitsa to Agios Dimitrios and Trahila. Alternatively, there is a gentle coastal path from Stoupa which takes less than an hour on foot (see the maps of both villages for where the walk starts and finishes – you cannot get lost in between). Life is centred around the harbour- a great place to sit, eat and drink while watching the boats coming and going. In the summer the road is closed to vehicles. as tavernas make use of the space to put tables and chairs right on the water’s edge. The main beach (Pantazi) is roughly a kilometre further south, about a 10-15 minute walk. Other swimming opportunities are at the smaller cove of Voulimeneas or at the natural swimming platform, known as Gnospi, which is great for snorkeling.
