Ayios Nikolaos (Greek: Άγιος Νικόλαος) is a former village and present British garrison located in the British Sovereign Base Area of Dhekelia on the island of Cyprus. It is the site of a Green Line crossing point controlled on the one side by SBA Police and by the police of the de facto Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus on the other side. The main road from Larnaca to Famagusta runs through the village.
