Agios Nikolaos - Special things to do on your birthday

Hi

My wife has her birthday when we are in Crete in mid to late June this year and I was wondering if there is anything unique or different that I could do toi make her birthday memorable.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. An affordable but good day spa or pampering package, or a trip somewhere.

Appreciate your feedback in advance

Hi there

What a lovely hubby you are :-) not sure what your wife likes so here are some suggestions:-

- Lunch in one of the tavernas in Plaka - overlooking the beautiful island of Spinalonga

- Hire a boat from the harbour in Agios - romantic lunch somewhere, or picinic on the boat?

- Book her into the beautiful six senses spar in Elounda not sure of the price, but my neighbour in Crete loves it there :-) here's a link to it

- book a table for dinner at one of the lovely restaurants in Agios, my suggestions for somewhere a bit special would be Mare Monte

or Mignomis with its wonderful views of the lake

- if she is fond of animals you could book a picinic with the walking with donkeys charity - heres the web site for more info :

An evening of stargazing at the Sasteria public observatory in Agios Stephanos, in the mountains above Makry-Gialos, about an hour's drive from Ag Nik, would certainly qualify as different.

A few years ago on my birthday, my husband brought me from Ag. Nik to Elounda for an amazing dinner on a waterfront boat. We could hear traditional greek music from the nearby harbourside taverna, and water lapping against the boat. It was very romantic. I enjoyed it so much and the waiter gifted me with our clay/ceramic wine carafe which I still have displayed on a mantle in my home. I'm sure whatever you decide will be amazing..... after all.... you'll be in Crete.
