Plakias in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

The old Cretan fishing village of Plakias with its little harbour, lies in a particulary beautiful landscape between the blue Libyan Sea and vast majestic mountains that edge down to one of the loveliest bays on the south coast. It is about one and a half hour’s drive from Chania or Heraklion.

Plakias

Many years ago, there were only a few houses, but today, because of its delightful setting, the village has spread to cater for the growing numbers of tourists, who have told each other of this special place that they have found. However, it still retains its particular Cretan character and has kept its laid back charm.

The bay has a long sand and shingle beach between headlands, that gets sandier the farther you go from the village. Not far from the old harbour are tiny bays and small coves where you can find quiet spots to sun bathe and swim. Boats sail daily to a variety of beaches, some of which have a good selection of water sports and the whole area is ideal for swimming, and sun bathing in an blissfully not crowded setting. There is a variety of amenities for visitors and surrounding mountainous countryside.

For short trips with minimum effort there is Preveli, the Venetian fortress at Frangokastello and the Minoan site at Phaistos are all well worth a visit. Further afield to the east you may like to visit the cliff caves of Matala and the ancient Roman capital of Gortys, or to the west the picturesque old town of Rethymno and the atmospheric old Monastery of Arkadi.

Tip of the day

Top beaches.  Crete, Greece
Kouremenos near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
A real magnet for windsurfers from all over the world, who find ideal wind-wave combinations.
Rihti - Exo Mouliana near Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
Two hours walk through the Rihtis gorge, which is a beautiful path that culminates with Rihtis waterfall near Rihtis beach, will take you to one of the most secluded beaches of the island.
Istron or Kalo Chorio (North-Estern Crete)
A place filled with legends and traditions – but you will find quality tourism services too.
Maridati South of Vai beach (North-Eastern Crete)
Two big rocks are the landmarks of this beach that remains unknown to the masses.
Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
A village filled with fish taverns with a view of the Pseira Island, and lots of archaeological findings.
Kato Zakros (Estern Crete)
If you follow the two hours long footpath through the “gorge of the dead” you will be rewarded with the view of a magnificent beach but also of the Minoan Palace of Zakros destroyed on 1450 B.C. possibly by a Thira (Santorini) volcano explosion.
Hiona near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
Shallow waters for the kids and young swimmers, and a well known - all over the island - local fish soup.
Aghia Fotia - Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
We are not talking about the district with the same name at Ierapetra, here we find ourselves 7 kms east of Sitia in an area where the biggest cemetery of Minoan Crete was discovered.
Xerokambos – Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
Thousands of lilies at the eastern part of Crete fill the atmosphere with sensual vibes.
