Mochlos is a traditional village, located 48km east of Agios Nikolaos and 35km west of Sitia. It is situated 150m opposite the islet of St. Nicholas with the homonym chapel, which is a very important archaeological site. The village retains the traditional elements of Crete intact and is an ideal destination for a relaxing holiday. The villagers, mostly originating from the village Sfaka, are very friendly and you will feel very familiar with them on the first day. If you're lucky, you might meet some of the events organized by the locals, such as fishing contests.

Along the coastal road of the village there are a few taverns and cafes where you can enjoy fresh fish and your drinks. The taverns are famous even to Greek celebrities. There was an old tax office next to the taverns, which was unfortunately demolished several years ago. In front of the small village, you will find the small beach of Mochlos that is sandy and has rocky bottom. Next to it there are the basic amenities, but still it is not organized. If you head to the east, you will find the second bay of the village, which is smaller and rockier.
