Lots of lovely cafes and restaurants around the lake. Plenty on the cliff side too. Gorgeous at both day and evening.

A very pretty place, to walk around, especially if you look from above, plenty bars and eating places for all tastes, it’s a place you have to see to appreciate a photo does it no justice.

this is the most wonderful centre of agios nikolaos. already a fabulous town, this lake is the star attraction. lined with restaurants, bars and shops, the area is spectacular. highly recommended. just go and sit and soak up the atmosphere. lovely.

Tourist trap - if that's what you like that's what you get -pushy waiters - smelly ducks and skateboarders - much more pleasant around the marina and harbour areas

A body of water, surrounded by cliffs, restaurants, bars, shops and other tourist attractions. Nice place but not one of the 7 wonders of Crete.

This lake is probably one of the biggest attraction of Agios Nikolaos. Although it is nice to see, it is not worth a long journey.

which looked a lot better from up top when you can see the open sea beyond. Pleasant short stroll around. Restaurants n cafes dotted around.

An attractive like surrounded by restaurants and backed by a cliff with several paths and steps to the top. The like is next to the harbour and a channel connects them.

Our hotel was in Stalis, like 10 minutes from Hersonissos. We drove about 40 - 45 minutes by bus to this city (approximately 50-60 minutes from Hersonissos). (!) The bus will stop at the bus station and you'll have to... More

It’s really close and would be silly not to walk the odd 300metres to view it. It’s got some really pretty views
