Almiros beach is located 2.5km south of Agios Nikolaos and is the most popular beach of the city. It is shaped near the exit of Almiros River, which empties on the south part of the beach. Next to the beach, the protected wetland of Almiros hosts several rare birds, towering eucalyptus trees, reed and palm trees of Theophrastus (such as these in Vai).
The beach is quite long and very well-organized. It is sandy and the water is shallow and usually calm, making it ideal especially for young children. The area has a few canteens, while there are also many options for water sports. The sea water is very cold in some places due to the river that flows all year. On the south side of the beach there are small hotels and apartments.
To reach the beach from Agios Nikolaos city centre, especially if you do not have a car, you should walk the pedestrian street (5 ') which runs alongside the rocky coasts north of the beach. The pathway starts from Gargadoros beach, which is located 5 minutes south of town's marina. Almiros river was used several decades ago by the women of Agios Nikolaos, for washing their clothes.
