Plakias is just 25km south from the town of Rethymno, and is central to both major airports. Accessed from either one of two spectacular gorges, Plakias sits at the base of sweeping mountains that roll down to the sea, the hillsides are dotted with olive groves and small villages set high up overlooking the bay and Plakias harbour.Plakias was and still is a small fishing town, and has a row of tavernas on the sea front that serve fresh fish, from the local fishing boats. More recently Plakias has grown into a popular location for travellers who like to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist resorts, but still enjoy a town that has all the amenities on offer including a spectacular long sandy beach. There are plenty of supermarkets, bars and tavernas, a doctor’s surgery, hairdresser, ATM, junior school and recently a library. Not to mention some wonderful shops tucked in amongst the back streets that sell a range of goods from crafts, jewellery to designer clothing. Around Plakias are some lovely sights to visit, including the famous Prevelli Monastery and the gorge that is home to some of the rare Griffen Vultures. There are also boat trips to a variety of locations along the south coast or across to the most southerly island of Gavdos. Both east and west of Plakias are some quieter coves and beaches looking to be explored, along with many traditional villages, whose pattern of life hasn’t changes for many years. Here you will find the hospitable Cretan villagers who welcome you to share their lifestyle.
