St. Nikolaos is one of the most beautiful churches of Crete and the trademark of Georgioupolis. It is built on an artificial stone pier in the sea which can be accessed from the beach.

This little church which in combination with the open sea compose a unique picturesque landscape, has been occasionally an ideal cinematic scenery for films that have been filmed on the island. It is dedicated to Saint Nicholas patron saint of sailors and Greek Navy so it is built into the waves.
