Havania beach

Located around 500 metres north of the renowned Mirabelo Hotel in Agios Nikolaos, the tranquil beach of Havania is the perfect spot for a holiday. The beach is well-maintained and has a lifeguard station, as well as plenty of water sports options. There is a wide range of accommodation and food choices nearby.

It is said that the remnants of a small port, dating back to the Ottoman rule, are still visible in the sea. Additionally, local legend has it that the Saracens (pirates) once came here and laid out their gold on the beach – anyone who dared to look at it would be doomed to die! During the German occupation, the area was filled with mines and was therefore abandoned for a few years before being cleared up. It is also believed that there was once a cave with stalactites near the beach, although it has since disappeared. On the left side of the beach, some large stones remain from an old fortress that was torn down. The area also used to be home to havania, which was where locals would wash linum (flax).
