Returned to St Nicholas Beach for the first time in 9 years, wow! what a difference!  Still a great beach with perfect sand and warm turqoise sea but just a bit busier.  The dive centre bar is still going strong, but the addition of some very expensive looking, big hotels means its now a perfect place to pose if you have the money, style and figure!!! Never mind, I suppose it was too good a beach to remain quiet and understated.

You very kindly dropped the photo off to out hotel in Argassi (Nefeli Hotel) that evening because your printer broke or ran out of paper.
We were passing the guy on the platform on the photo from right to left!
If you could find it and send it on I will pay over the phone with my Debit Card.Thereason for the rquest is that my girlfreind had never been on one before and she wants toprove she actually went on one
My phone number is 0044 7765 315316

click to enlarge Two out of three of us were nervous about diving, me especially after a bad experience in the UK with poor visibility and an attack of vertigo. I was persuaded by my family to give it one more try and am so glad we picked St Nicks to do it. We all had an amazing time, I felt safe and knew that if I had any problems they would be spotted and sorted out instantly. I really enjoyed the experience and will be back to do my Open Water with you. My daughter went from nervous to WOW in the space of one dive. Many, many thanks to John, Jodie and the two Mikes for a fab time.

hi, we came here once last year. did paraglidng and crazy couch.
st nicholas beach
really nice beach and sea
great variety of watersports
good bars and tavernas around there
not to far of a journey from kalamaki, good scenery on the way
journey there not for faint hearted very high with thin roads and those crazy drivers
great views
didnt land in sea, although some people did ( good because one of us hates water)
expensive but worth it so defo good value for money
people on jet skis went across rope so false start i guess
staff dont care much about you as friends got lip bust by metal pole on the equipment
crazy couch
adreniline rush, definatly for the strong and wild not kids
good amount of time on it
nearly fell off clingin for dear life
arms killed for ages afterwards, so much couldnt pick up a bottle of water
really fun fmaily day out. activities expensive but worth it. they take photos while you do the water sports so can remember you time there.

My friends and i went to Zante in October and i had never dived before but my friend had, we asked about booking through Thomas Cook but they wanted 55E but that did not include the transport. We booked through a guy called Colin at the 'Heaven' bar in Alykanas and for 55E he picked us up and took us down to St Nicks Beach where i had the most fabulous first dive ever! I was very nervous but the instructor, John May, made me feel at ease and talked me through all the safety talks etc and i loved it! I would recommend St Nicks Diving School to anyone wanting to try diving for the first time! Fab!! :-)

I visited St Nicholas last week to go scuba diving - had a great day. Thanks again to 'Tall' Mike and Maria who were both great, friendly and very professional. Thanks to Mike for the great underwater pictures!
Would definately recommend a visit to the beach, which is lovely and the free bus is a bonus. Food at the snack bar is good and the view from the top of the cliffs next to the chapel is fantastic. Watersports looked great fun if you're feeling brave and I would highly recommend diving!! 
Will definaltely visit St Nic's again on my next visit to Zante.Smile

Hi There John,Mike and Marie

Thank you very much teaching us so much about Skuba diving, Ross (10) Ashley (8) Loved it so much they cannot wait to tell their friends about it!
anyone reading this MUST try it out, It had been a long long time ago that Stuart and myself had initially had a go at Skuba diving and felt very relaxed with your expert tuition!!
Ross now wanting to go again so will have to look about near home to get him lessons?? He would have spent all day in the wter with you!
Very pleasant beach surroundings! The beach was very clean and safe area for children.
Jodie if you are reading this can you Thank Susie for us again for recomending us travelling down to see you all, was a very memorable day out and the children with never forget it!

WOW St Nics beach is fantastic!!!!!

We got the free bus down there from the Avalon Bar though you have to pay for a sunbed to get a ticket back on the bus which is 4 euros. Bus leaves at half 10and comes back at 5. went to argassi for 2 weeks and we visited st nics in our 1st week but it was cold and a bit rainy and so we thought we'd come back the next week. What a fab idea that was. We took money for the watersports too! weather was glorious.
We paid 170 euros for 2people  for paragliding, jet skis, ringos, banana, sofa, and fly fish. Absolutely amazing, best day of the holiday. The watersports guys are fab!
The sea is clear and stunning and the little fish swim at your feet  they dont bite! The sand is soft and golden.
Best day of the holiday on with the watersports lasting throughout the day on the beach! fantastic!

Had a great day at St Nicks Beach, its a beautiful beach with good facilities, plenty of watersports and a lovely church, but if you go on a thursday BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!! as the dreaded booze cruise turns up about 2pm.  A shame really as most families have to pack up due to the noise, foul language and general behaviour of these people.

Another great visit to St Nicholas Beach, good watersports and facilities, only thing that spoilt the day was the arrival of a "Booze Cruise", took over the beach and were very noisy, Coming back in Oct 2007.

I get to Saint Nicholas beach and it was ok,
but expensive though, however the previous beach "banana" had
way cheaper watersports, in St. Nic Jet Ski was 50 for10 min and in
Banana 30 for 15min.!! Banana beach is bigger and more quiet.
Anyway, Vasilikos is great place to visit and St  Nicholas also nice

top beach by far, we went by car and it was bout 15 min drive from argassi. clean and well run beach. good quality sun beds too. we stayed all day and enjoyed it.
At side of beach you will see an old church and a greek flag on top of a hill, go climb upto it and take in the views and the interesting sea ponds that have filled on top of the rocks lower down from the flag. we sat up tere for ages watching the sea, a word of warning you will get wet in some places when the sea on the opposite side to st nicks beach hits the rocks.
